Programme of Monthly Meetings for 2019

Our aim is to organise a talk by professionals in the field each month.

All MEETINGS are held at St Andrew's Hall in St Andrew's Church, London Road RG1 5BD (next door to the RBH on London Road, Reading at the corner of Craven Road and opposite Eldon Road) starting at 6.30 pm with refreshments. Do visit the Venue/Parking page to see map and parking information. Usually the meetings are held on the first Friday of each month.

In addition the group organises a number of social, awareness and funding occasions during the year. Most noteworthy are: The Awareness Stand in the Broad Street Mall - Reading each year, the Summer Fair held at Early, a late summer evening meal at a special location in the Reading area and a chance to meet up prior to Christmas - before this takes up our valuable time and any available cash. People usually bring their own alcohol to the Christmas Supper although a welcome drink is provided.

Presentations at Group Meetings

Talks by professionals with a good chance to raise questions and meet others on the same treatment path. Bring others in your family and close friends to hear first hand the latest thoughts on many a related topic. Meetings are held on the first Friday every month.
