At our previous Group Meeting we held our AGM to look back over the past year of our Support Group and everything that we’ve done. It was a great meeting and I was so pleased to see everyone. There was a truly lovely feeling in the room and it was nice to catch up with everyone and go over the agenda. We also discussed our upcoming fundraising events in November and December, which really help to keep the support group running, especially with the rising room hire costs. If anyone would like to come along and help out for an hour (or whatever time you can give) at the fundraising events please get in touch and let us know (you can either get in touch on our Facebook group or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org), we’ll be at the Gateshead Stadium on the 25th of November and the Metrocentre on the 3rd of December.
We also voted in committee members and we’re happy to say that all current committee members are happy to stay on in their volunteer roles. We’d also like to extend a very warm welcome to Kathleen Bickerton as a new committee member!
I’d also like to again thank Pauline Rowland and the Friends of Walker School for their surprise donation of £50 to the Support Group! It was a really wonderful surprise and will help us to carry on giving support to people living with Fibromyalgia.
Here’s to another amazing year together as a wonderful, growing community!
