It turned out to be a little warm last week at our new venue, St Margaret's House. The sun had been shining, the heating was still turned on and then we had the excitement of the power point blowing up! We are very grateful to Karim for keeping his cool when he told us about the excellent work of the London Air Ambulance Service in providing emergency services quickly to those who need it within the "platinum ten minutes" to save lives. Good to know that we have a crack team working at the Royal London.
Thanks too to Chris Gurney who came along to talk about the work the Food Chain does to deliver food and advice to Londoners who are chronically sick as a result of HIV infection. The Food Chain is keen to attract volunteers - to work in their kitchen, drive, navigate or help with admin work. If you want to know more, check their website, or have a word with Niki or Veronika who can tell you more about work as a volunteer for the charity.
We're loving the new venue and expect to have made ourselves properly at home when we meet there again for our next meeting on 15th of June when we'll be doing some summer crafting. Looking forward to it.
