‘Voices’ charity speaks at our meeting

September 19, 2019

We enjoyed listening to local charity ‘Voices’ at our supper meeting and heard what valuable support they give to victims of domestic violence.  They have been around for only a few years but have made a huge impact on women’s lives and helped them through difficult times.fullsizeoutput_10a84


A visit to the RUH Breast Unit

August 28, 2019

fullsizeoutput_108f9A few of us were given a conducted tour of the Breast Unit at the RUH and we learnt about the forthcoming plans to improve the unit by expanding it and renovating the existing unit giving it a more efficient and friendly feel.

The future is looking bright especially for breast cancer sufferers and we are glad that we’ve been able to fundraise for the Forever Friends appeal. £600,000 needs to be raised by the public to help fund the appeal. £250,000 to go!
