Free cake was the name of the game at the ‘Espresso’ coffee shop in Nottingham this month. 14 members from both BoB and BoS gathered at the coffee shop for a catch-up, natter and some mutual support.
The fellowships in the Midlands continue to grow at an astonishing rate which means more that ever; the mutual support network that the fellowship members provide one another is becoming more prominent and increasingly important. Alan may set up the coffee and cake, but it’s you, the members, that do the rest.
Dave Adams, the father of BoB Doug Adams said: “I'm pleased to say my son and his partner attended a coffee morning this week and collected our Jo Love fragrances. Can I just say thank you for the wonderful gift. I am going to send a message to Jo Malone as well thanking them for their generosity. Finally, my son really enjoyed the coffee morning. Six or twelve months ago he wouldn't have attended an event like that so thank you for organising it.”
As well as the free cake in Nottingham, during February BoB and BoS had get-togethers in Leicester, Birmingham, Worcester and Stratford upon Avon with a total of 38 BoB and BoS getting along to meet up, exchange ideas for their areas and collect the Jo Love fragrance. We have also had BoB Gary Peake run a first aid course at Fisher House for the house staff and 5 BoB/BoS.
