Well, this is who everybody is looking at with great admiration!

and why?

 

Peter had just taken part in the Great North Run on the

8th September, and successfully completed the run in a

most impressive 3 hours. Not a bad acheivement for someone

who only a few years ago was being treated for

Head & Neck Cancer.

Well done Peter, from everyone in Headstart.

 

 

Otherwise our morning in Medway was it's usual jovial routine, with

was was in fact a not too difficult quiz for once. The raffle

went down a down a storm and the refreshments were attacked

in the usual manner.

Our next get-together will be on;

 

Friday 19th October in the Surgeon's Mess

Queen Victoria Hospital, East Grinstead at 10am.

 

Headstart is very much looking forward to seeing you then.

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

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
