This meeting was highly anticipated due to the visit of Mrs Shetty Consultant Oncoplastic Breast Surgeon and the turnout was good. We welcomed three new members Valerie, Justine and Julie and in the time before Mrs Shetty’s arrival Denise took the opportunity to explain to them how PBCSG operated and the support given, and Margaret highly recommended the ‘Moving Forward Course’, at the Robert Horrell Centre run by the Macmillan Nurses.
The following items were highlighted:
The City Council are offering 10 free sessions on their ‘Lets Get Moving’ course looking at diet, exercise and weight loss.
The group took part in a health and safety day at Perkins on 30th July ‘One Life – Live It’.
Macmillan Cancer Support are hosting an event on behalf of the Hospitals Cancer Service User Group (CSUG) on 5th September 10am – 3pm at the ‘Quality Hotel’ (formally the Butterfly Hotel) and a light lunch is provided.
Helens 50th Birthday donations raised £270.00.
An Orton Southgate Pilates instructor/physiotherapist is hoping to put together a course for breast cancer patients.
Sadly our Treasurer, Pat Ash has had to give up this post. We send our best wishes to Pat, her Mum & family and Thank Pat for all her time and effort, including coming into Peterborough whenever we needed something doing!
Meanwhile we are grateful to Val who has generously added to her already busy schedule.
