The WINGS Progam

Our guest speaker Sarah Ward described herself as a Law/Arts Graduate and sports fanatic with an interest in mental health. The establishment of the AFL Women’s competition encouraged her to join Hawthorn Amateur Football Club, and she has participated in  two Grand Final victories with that club.

She joined the Club’s committee as a mental health ambassador, and volunteers as Player Welfare Manager for the Club.

Tragic circumstances had led Hawthorn Amateur Football Club to focus on mental health through the creation of their revolutionary Player Wellbeing Program, WINGS.

Support for some people doing it tough

We have agreed to assist in providing care packs and clothing for people being admitted to the Alfred Hospital Mental Health Unit. The Unit has 50 or so patients at any one time and staff say people being admitted are highly anxious and frightened and many arrive with no physical possessions or care items. The Hospital is only able to provide basic hygiene necessities.

The Song that took over the World

John Lennon once claimed that The Beatles were “more popular than Jesus.” 

According to the Songwriters Hall of Fame, there’s one song that’s way more popular than anything The Beatles ever wrote—more widely performed, in fact, than the works of The Beatles, Beethoven, and Bach combined. 

It’s a song that even small children around the world know by heart, and the only song that’s ever been performed on Mars.

THE SHADOW KNOWS

Julie Clark continues to collect some amazing recipes: so far she describes some really tasty dishes, from “Bill’s Beef Stroganoff with Buttered Noodles” and “Traditional Irish stew” to  “Nana’s Steamed Pudding with Ginger Sauce” and everybody’s favourite, “Sticky Date Pudding”.

However she is still short on soups, vegetable dishes and salads, biscuits and slices and could probably do with a few more different desserts, and perhaps some canapés.

The Shadow knows you could dig out some more old and new recipes for Julie’s project!
