Strawberries were abundant on Saturday 16th in the Kent Oncology Centre,

along with lovely homemade cakes and lots of other goodies as well.

There were lots of supporters here today and amongst them were a

few surprise ones, so there was quite a bit of hugging and embracing

going on!

(Pam, Derek and Gina)

Sally and Derek had driven early that very morning from Sleaford, Lincolnshire

to be with us. It was a big, big surprise.

We also had a lovely visitor who was very instrumental in the formation of

Headstart, namely, one Debbie Collins who was a radiographer nurse

at Maidstone and now retired.

Our fast flowing event that morning ended with the raffle and the answers to the quiz,

the winner and prize went to Linda and Peter. Well done guys.

Our next get-together is on Saturday 15th September 2018 in the

Post Grad Centre, Medway Maritime Hospital at our usual time of 10am.

Headstart is looking forward to seeing you then.

 

************************************************************

You may recall from the Medway event that Linda was in the

process of making a quilt, the idea being that Headstart would

raffle/auction it off to raise some funds for the kitty.

Well, she has done it, and she brought it along,

this by the way is an explanation of the quilting pattern she used

in making this beautiful hand-made quilt .......and here it is.

A little more news of  the quilt and what we are going

to do with it are on our Latest news and info page

We hope to see you at the next event on

Saturday 15th September 2018 in the Post Grad Centre,

Medway Maritime Hospital at our usual time of 10am.

*************************************

The raffle helps to pay for all the wonderful refreshments

so abundantly available. We are thinking of introducing

some participation from you all. As you know home baked

cakes and biscuits are just the best, if you like to bring something

along to the next meeting that would be wonderful. If there are

any left- overs they end up on the wards for patients

and sometimes for the nurses ... they deserve it
