Kia Ora to all our Wellington members!
I feel like we always have to mention the weather in these updates, so let’s do this……IT HAS BEEN SO COLD!! I hope you are all keeping warm, and enjoying the bouts of sunshine too!
Thank you to everyone that came along to the August monthly members meeting, it was lovely to see some of your friendly faces in the Zoom crowd! This month, we have some very exciting things happening, including our nomination to the Wellington Airport Awards. Marika and I will be attending on behalf of CCI Support, which will give us the opportunity to network with other charities and community organisations.
It has been great to see many of you during the in-person Wellington social meetings, as well as the online support groups. The meetings are the perfect opportunity to connect with others who share understanding, provide and receive emotional support, create friendships and be part of a positive atmosphere. Managing a chronic illness can sometimes be isolating, and the support groups offer a space where you can openly discuss your feelings, ask questions and share triumphs, knowing that you are amongst people who are able to empathise and support you. Through shared experience and mutual encouragement, you can find inspiration to keep moving forward in your journey.
So as always, I love hearing from all of you! So please feel free to reach out, email, text or call!
Keep warm and looking out for those glimmers,
