We had an open meeting in April to give us the chance to organise our activities for 2016. These were:-
Strawberry Tea 18th June: Tickets £5.00 Val asked if we could bring items for Tombola prizes to the May meeting. Also, any garden chairs, tables and sun shades would be handy. There will also be plants for sale to help boost funds.
Future Speakers: Rosie Callcott is attending the May meeting to tell us about lymphedema and its effects. Dobbi had been in contact with a GP willing to talk to us about nutritional supplement for later in the year. As more information is needed about current endocrine treatments, a request that a speaker from the Oncology department was made. Croccus Group – we have been invited to attend their AGM at the Woodman with a view to holding a joint meeting.
AOB: A suggestion was made to raise group funds by a sponsored walk around Ferry Meadows. Wellbeing project - Gill no longer attends meetings but update awaiting. Lisa had visited a prosthesis tour in Dublin and had been amazed at the quality of the new products available. Carole asked if anyone would like some shampoo and conditioner for wigs.
