Creative juices were flowing at the July Auckland meeting where colours and patterns were carefully matched to make beautiful patchwork cards. Steph Hansen brilliantly co ordinated us all with everyone going home with very professional looking cards and the makings of a bookmark. Which Steph had prettily packaged in a gift box with a bonus chocolate. One member commented how much she enjoyed the focus and found it very calming. Thank you Steph and our volunteer drivers and helpers on the day Natalie, Eleanor and Margaret.
It was an inspiring and informative meeting on the North Shore with Registered Clinical Nutritionist Ling Chan speaking to us about diet and nutrition. Ling put us all at ease and found out what issues we had each come with. Not surprisingly, sugar was a question on many members’ lips. Ling covered this and a whole raft of other matters in a logical and easily understood way. We reluctantly let Ling go at the end of what was a very fast hour and a half. Thank you to Ling and our volunteers on the North Shore Sandy and Dianne who seamlessly make our meetings run so smoothly. Ling is a Service Provider working at Return to Form Ponsonby, phone 09 551 4460.
