Day 353 of #LMB365 shows the LMB Library sprouts in quiet discussion about their Christmas preparations and wish lists. Sprout one is hoping Santa is going to bring them a copy of the Nordic Baking Book. Sprout two would really like some fancy pyjamas. They are both sure they are going to have to resort to First class stamps as they haven’t written any cards yet.
Christmas came early for the LMB’s EM Facility as they took delivery of a new Glacios electron microscope. Day 352 of #LMB365 shows members of the Facility with one of the major components just after it was unloaded from the van. The microscope will be used by groups across the LMB to assess and image samples for cryo-electron microscopy.
The LMB has held a charity Christmas raffle every year since the 1970’s and has raised many thousands of pounds over the decades. Day 351 of #LMB365 is a photo of the LMB’s raffle drum, built by Bill Parkinson from the Maintenance Department in the 1980’s, with stickers showing the sums raised in various years for different charities. The charity this year is the Cystic Fibrosis Trust – watch this space to see how much we raise in 2019
Day 350 of #LMB365 shows one of our Domestic Service Assistants, Freda Chapman, with her amazing cleaning trolley. Together they are bringing festive cheer across the LMB during the lead up to Christmas.
Day 349 of #LMB365 shows some of the LMB’s dedicated crafters running their Christmas stall to raise funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust. Many of the items for sale were crocheted, knitted or embroidered and members of the LMB purchased lots of beautiful items for Christmas. Watch this space to see how much we raise
A Secret Santa gift of wine glass markers has been put to good use in the NMR facility on day 348 of #LMB365. These cute markers will help staff in the facility easily identify important samples, and bring a little festive spirit too!
