North East Updates

What a great month it has been in the North. Our extremely exciting news is that we have two brand new members of the BoB and BoS team in your area. The lovely Harriet will be your point of contact for those of you in the North East, you will have the opportunity to meet her at the up and coming events and offers, she is very excited to move around the region over the next few months, to try and get to as many of you as possible.

For those of you in the North West, you will be very pleased to hear about the arrival of our new BoB and BoS Coordinator Kevin. Kevin is hugely enthusiastic to raise the profile of the membership in the region, and again would love to meet you and hear any ideas you have to help him make sure you are all getting the most out of the fellowship membership. So please give them both a warm welcome.

Lucy - Fashion Show BoS

At the beginning of the month, Phoenix House hosted the annual Help for Heroes Fashion Show, and what a fantastic evening it was with so much support from the local public and businesses! 18 very brave BoB and BoS members took to the catwalk looking exceptionally glamourous in front of an audience to help boost their confidence and do something completely different. Although slightly nerve-racking, they did extremely well, everyone seemed to really enjoy it. The evening raised around an incredible £2,000!

Towards the end of the month 10 Band of Sisters spent a weekend at Phoenix House for respite and relaxation. The weekend was filled with lovely activities for the ladies to get involved with, including a massage treatment, jewellery making, ‘The Great Phoenix Bake Off’, a makeover demonstration, and relaxation.

Our Band of Sisters seemed to find it very beneficial - “Thank you so much, it was absolutely fantastic, I feel lucky to have had the chance to experience the weekend and it was a lovely break from the everyday stresses and struggles”.

It was an absolute pleasure to spend time with such wonderful ladies, and we look forward to more next year. If you are interested in coming on a BoS Respite Weekend, and you haven’t had the opportunity to attend one before, please contact Harriet harriet.walters@helpforheroes.org.uk for more details.
