This week is National Epilepsy Week. Epilepsy is a condition that affects the brain. Activity happens in our brain all the time, between the tiny brain cells which send messages to each other. These messages control our thoughts, movements, senses and body functions. A seizure happens when there is a sudden, intesnse burst of activity in the brain which causes the messages between cells to get mixed up This causes an epileptic seizures which can be very distressing and debilitating for the individual.

Today we held our first Digni-tea event, led by our Dignity Champion, Client Relations Manager Roisin Burton.

Roisin led the head office team in a discussion about what dignity means to each of us, she was also able to share thoughts on the defination of dignity from our clients and care staff. We created a Digni-tree with our thoughts on the subject to create a visual effect to remind us all on a regular basis.

Roisin also spent time discussing the values of the Dignity Council which echo many of Solo's vision and values too.

We have held our second annual MacMillan Cake Off Coffee Morning - we all love an excuse to eat cake in the office and our bakers did not let us down!

After much deliberation and second tastes, our judges awarded the Star Baker prize to Rochelle from Payroll (pictured with Nic from our judging panel) for her wonderfully chocolatey Oreo, Malteser and Fudge Tray Bake. It was delicious, thank you Rochelle!

Other items on the menu included Biscotti cupcakes courtesy of Lauren, DPSS Payroll; Hot Chocolate Cupcakes from Jenna, DPSS payroll; Daisy's Lemon Drizzle cake from Nic, Finance Manager and Flapjacks from Sonia, Admin and Finance Administrator.

A massive thank you to everyone who baked and also ate - we raised a fabulous £86.20 for this very worthy cause.

We're looking forward to our 2018 Cake Off already!
