Cough your way to an Oscar

We had a lot of fun at BBC Wales in Cardiff yesterday. Doug and Margaret joined June from Cardiff and Shan Evans from British Lung Foundation Wales to help make a recording for BBC Radio Wales to encourage people with a cough to go and see their doctor to get checked out properly and treated if necessary. It's not so easy to cough on demand so a fair bit of giggling went on too. Thanks to Eiry Thomas, (Casualty, Torchwood, Under Milkwood etc) who did the voice, for supporting BLF Wales in their work.
So, from Sunday 2nd November, after the 9.00am news, and from then on throughout the week, listen out for the coughs on BBC Radio Wales.

October Meeting

We had a good attendance this month and received a lot of useful information from Karen Williams from Care and Repair in Neath Port Talbot area. What a good service they offer to the more vulnerable people in our society. It's good to know that they have lists of workmen who can be trusted. It is difficult, unless you have the benefit of "word of mouth" recommendations, to know who to trust, and so easy to make a mistake. She brought us a gift each of an emergency light, a cosy fleece blanket, pen and lots of information about the services offered.
