Reflection of World Spine Day
The clinic reception was decorated with some bunting and plenty of information about WSD. We handed out over 100 leaflets including a spinal hygiene workout, down loaded from the WSD Org website along with an invitation for them to give away to someone they thought may benefit from a Spine Check. This was supervised by the staff on reception.
In the college volunteers got busy in the kitchen and made some wonderful cakes & toffee apples for sale.
We had a stall in the common room at lunch time and the cakes went down a treat!
Along side that, for some fun, we had a build the spine competition, where by teams of two students were timed to thread the spine together. ( more difficult than it might seem!)
Great concentration and frustration at times from the contestants, but everyone managed the task eventually!!
The winners in a time of 2.35 minutes were 3rd year students.
At the end of the day we managed to raise a substantial amount for the World Spine Organisation,
A big thank you, from the McTimoney WCCS Chapter, to all that contributed, got involved, and generously donated to the funds.
