10 year anniversary meeting!
April 16 @ 12:00 pm - 2:30 pm
On the 16th of April we will be celebrating our 10 year anniversary group meeting! Wow! We will be opening the doors to this group meeting from the slightly earlier time of 12pm and it will finish at 2:30pm at The Oxford Centre, Longbenton, NE12 8LT, it is wheelchair accessible with disabled toilets close by to the room we will be in (room One next to the cafe area on the ground floor, our banner will be outside the door). The Oxford Centre has a car park with disabled parking in front of the entrance.
Entry is free of charge for everyone!
We have invited a lot of companies along who offer support, services or advice to people who live with chronic illnesses/disabilities and we are so grateful that we’ve had such an amazing response from these companies! We will be welcoming along Disability North (a disability charity that can offer advice and support in many aspects of life, including benefits advice), Moving Forward (a mental health charity who offer 1:1 support and also help you access courses in the local area), Mindful Therapies who are a not for profit organisation running regular drop-in meditation classes, mindfulness courses, counselling and coaching. They offer low cost and donation based drop-in meditation classes at The Mindful Therapies Centre and community venues across the North East, Driftwood Float Spa a company based in Heaton offering floatation therapy – pods are filled with water and Epsom salts which can help with pain relief and more!
Members will be able to speak with all the companies and find out what they do, what they can offer and how they can help you. There will be tables set up in the middle of the room to sit down, catch up and celebrate!
We also have an INCREDIBLE raffle for our 10 year anniversary and we’re so thankful and overwhelmed by the generosity of businesses that have donated items for free for our raffle. You can buy tickets on the day, and we have also given members tickets to sell to friends and family. Some of the raffle prizes include: Two tickets to the Tyneside cinema, a family day pass (for 4) at Alnwick Gardens, a family day pass (for 4) to Whitehouse farm, a Driftwood Float Spa voucher, Paingone plus pain relief pen, tens machines, Painslayer – an all natural comforting balm by Motorbikers Cosmetics Company, Spacemasks – heat up eyemasks, Sunday lunch for 4 at the Village Hotel at the Silverlink, an overnight stay with breakfast at the Village Hotel at the Silverlink and even more!
It really is set to be an amazing raffle with so many incredible prizes to be won!
Friends, family, partners, carers are all welcome to come along to this meeting, helping them to build a wider support network too!
We would love to see you there, and can’t wait to celebrate with friends old and new!
