* Our AGM & social on 9 December was very well supported by members and friends - and there were members present for the first time, which was excellent. Our event raffle raised an superb £129, which all but covered the cost of providing our usual delicious free buffet. On this occasion, the buffet was served up for us by Sabrina, Jane & Althea. The out-going committee were re-elected en-bloc (click here for our committee rogues gallery). Martin Telling was thanked for his magnificent effort in running the Swindon Half Marathon on behalf of our charity, which raised £375 with an amount of Gift Aid to follow. The marathon took place on a particularly monsoon-like day, so very well done Martin, we very much appreciate your support!
* Don’t forget our “Cuppa and a Chat” meetings at the Tesco Extra Supermarket, Ocotal Way, Swindon, will start again on Tuesday, 28 January at 10:00 am - 12 noon. Sadly, over the Christmas period the community room, where we hold our Cuppa and Chats, is transformed into Santa’s grotto, hence no more Cuppa and Chats till January!
* We have been informed by the Great Western Hospital stoma care team that they are now unable to accept surplus appliance supplies from patients for dispatching to the Third World (Romania, Ukraine, Ghana etc.)
