Member get member winners

A huge 'thank you' to everyone who took the time to sign up new members during the 'Member get Member' Foundation Trust promotion.

The final draw was held at the end of March with AWP's Executive Medical Director and Director of Strategy and Business Development Arden Tomison and staff side rep Sally Jeffrey.

The prize of £100 in shopping vouchers goes to Daniel McNally from Swindon.  Daniel works for independent group SUNS (Service Users Network Swindon), who between them have submitted nearly 60 forms during the Member get Member promotion.

He says, "I'm very supportive of AWP's FT bid as it's based on the principle of working with the community."

This promotion may have drawn to a close but the ongoing efforts of everyone to sign up new members are much appreciated. The new FT recruitment team is also still out and about, helping us achieve a really balanced membership reflecting the whole of our area and with a good mix of ages. If you have any questions about FT please contact the team on foundationtrustinfo@awp.nhs.uk or 01249 468377 or 0800 694 9990.

The winner of our February Member get Member draw was Sally Wood, AWP patient and public involvement project manager.

Sally wins £100 in shopping vouchers for her efforts in recruiting friends and family as Foundation Trust members.

Sally, who lives in Chippenham, says, "I was delighted to win and it will be fun thinking about what to spend the money on.

"It was easy to take part, as I enjoy talking to people about what we do and trying to challenge some of the misconceptions they may have about mental health.  I ended up having some interesting conversations with friends and family about the work of the Trust."

The winner of our Member get Member draw for January was Ann Mooney, a service user and chair of the independent group SUNS (Service Users Network Swindon). Her name was picked from the hat by Julie Thomas, AWP's director for people.

Ann wins £100 in shopping vouchers and has chosen to put them towards a pool table for SUNS.

Ann says, "It was great news to hear I'd won. I think it's really important for people to get involved, especially service users and carers, so I've signed up lots of members. Members will be able to give their views about services and even stand for election to the board of governors.

"We were already fundraising for a new pool table for our drop-in club so the shopping vouchers are a fantastic boost."

Many thanks to everyone who has signed up new Foundation Trust members. We want to build a broad membership reflecting the wide and diverse communities we serve.
