|Bright lights, big city|
It will be the first time for ages that I've been to a BTF London Group event.
Looking forward to seeing all who can make it. The group needs more help to keep running and when I heard that, I couldn't help but offer to do what I can to keep it going.
So it will be an early start and a Saturday away from my lovely husband and our beach life and a great chance to see some lovely thyroid friends I haven't seen for an age - and no doubt also to meet some new people. Already, chatting to some group members and friends in advance of the meeting, I'm being reminded that it is so good to talk to other thyroid patients, to compare notes and just be there for each other.
Do come along if you would like to and can get there. All welcome.
This Saturday, 26th November. 10am - 1pm.
At Crown Court Church, Russell Street, Covent Garden, London WC2B 5EZ

This will be a support group meeting and a chance to discuss the future of the group.
If anyone else is interested in helping run this group please come along and join in the discussion.
As ever I feel it is vital that there should be a support group for thyroid patients in our capital city. People have travelled from all over to attend past meetings and for many members I know this group is a lifeline - because they have told us so. But it's a lot of work to make it happen and I for one am well past the point where I can take that on for no remuneration. My working capacity is reduced by my condition anyway and I have other voluntary commitments as well as paying clients that all require my attention and I have to be mindful of a sensible balance between paid and unpaid work. So we have to come up with a solution, ideally a way of working together as a Team, that will ensure the sustainability of these support meetings.
If you're coming I look forward to seeing you. If not - wish us luck please! We need it.
