Dear member

 

 

 

I hope you are enjoying your summer. The new committee has been very busy over the past few months; besides settling into our new roles we have been refurbishing our offices in Floriana, with the aim of making them more professional for us to work in and above all more welcoming for you, the members. We hope you will come along and visit us!

 

Please note the change in members’ meetings – we will now be meeting in Malta on the first Wednesday of the month rather than the first Thursday. Some of the meetings will also be off site. Gozo meetings will remain the same as before – the 2nd Monday evening / Tuesday morning of the month.

We are considering holding some advocacy training, to cover essential information about breast cancer and treatment as well as how to be effective advocates. Particularly suitable for members who would like to represent the group in the media. Depending on the number of people interested, this could either be in the form of a one-day seminar or as a course of sessions over several weeks. Please let me know if you are interested, by calling on 27204403 or 99330330 or by email to info@europadonnamalta.org.mt

 

Hope to see you at our meetings and events!

 

Anne and the committee
