Railing against Abuse

November 26, 2016

South West Regional clubs came together to ‘rail against abuse’. The United Nations Day of Elimination of Violence  Against Women was marked on 25th November by travelling by rail and wearing orange and handing out book marks called ‘Loves me, loves me not’ We all came together at Bristol Temple Meads and we walked to the Next Link Centre and eventually walked

to the Lord Mayor’s Chapel at College Green. Tara Newley joined us for the rally.

Guest speaker Alice Smith talking about Endometriosis

January 10, 2016

A lovely young lady called Alice came to talk to our group about the debilitating disease endometriosis.  What an inspiration she was and we learnt so much about the nature of the disease and the fact that I can affect teenagers as well as older women. More importantly it needs to be spoken about and should not be a taboo subject. We should be looking at more ways of highlighting this awful disease.
