    Sorry you can’t be with us Jayne because of work. I have asked the members who are attending Phillip’s funeral to wear their EnergEyes tops and Hoodies in respect to Phillip. We will also be thinking of our members and volunteers who have gone before him and made a safe and happy place for him.
    Aileen xx

  2. Jayne Coopey says:

    Sad news. No doubt he will meet all our other missed energeyes friends and cause an absolute riot between them all. Rip. As i am unable to go i will be wearing my energeyes top in his memory please join me in his memory if you would like to.

    One of the first members of EnergEyes, Phillip Watts, 69 years young, passed away on Friday 28th February 2022 at Weston General Hospital, after a short illness. His funeral is to be held on Wednesday 16th February at St Andrews Church, Congresbury at 11.30 am and afterwards at the Memorial Hall. I wish to send our condolences to his family and friends and let them know they are in our prayers and thoughts at this very difficult time. Phillip was a true gentleman and we will all miss his laughter and cheekiness. Aileen

    Hi everyone, it’s Aileen. Some good news. The store Manager at ASDA, Clevedon, Dave Hutt, has chosen EnergEyes as their charity for the year, beginning November 2020 through until 2021. We receive £50 worth of goods every month from ASDA. Aren’t we very lucky. As most of you know, our wonderful volunteer Steve Zoller, is employed by ASDA, Clevedon and this is mainly through him that our charity has been chosen. Well done Steve and thank you.
    Hope you are all keeping safe and well. We will be back to normal with the charity as soon as the restrictions are lifted. Can’t wait. I miss you all so very much. Have a happy Christmas. Aileen xx

    Hi everyone. Phyllis, our lovely volunteer, is in Musgrove Park Hospital, and has been since Monday. She has cellulitis, which is a common serious bacterial infection. Her leg was very swollen and hot. Derek rushed her to hospital. She is very upbeat and positive, as usual, but getting fed up with the food etc. Luckily, she has her phone handy and is able to keep in contact. She won’t be home until at least Monday. We send her all our best wishes. Aileen
