February 2018

Welcome Back: For our first meeting in 2018 we were delighted to see Mauricette again and welcomed Julie who had been unable to come along to the meeting in Orton and decided to try the Holiday Inn instead.

Breast Care Support Nurse, Claire Snowden, was there to answer our queries and we had a discussion about anti-depressants when going through treatment.

Daytime Meetings: Our experience of holding a daytime meeting at Herlington Centre Orton Malbourne had not been particularly successful.

Institute of Cancer Research are looking for volunteers recently diagnosed or on treatment to raise awareness of the importance of the work they are doing.

PBCSG History: We did say that we would collect photos of our history as a group, which would go into a leaflet/booklet to provide more of a picture of who we are and what we do. Please remember to bring us photos/info from the past.

PBCSG Leaflet: We also discussed our current leaflet feeling it needed updating. Helen suggested we make it simpler, scaling it down to A5 size and it was agreed to also simplify our message and information. Carol said she could provide leaflet printing and Gill said she would carry out the suggested amendments and send on to Carol via email.

Finally Val said the date for this year’s Strawberry Tea Fundraiser is 23rd June.
