We drove down to Cardiff yesterday for the annual Breath of Fresh Air Awards. It's great to get together with the other Breathe Easy groups in South Wales and exchange news.
Our group was thrilled to receive two awards. One was for being the best fundraising group. You only have to look back to our August entry to see why that was. We amazed ourselves this year by being able to give over £8,000 to BLF Wales.
Then Doug and Margaret were proud to accept their certificate for outstanding service to Breathe Easy and the local community
Wherever there is a gathering of people they seem to be there as well with an Awareness Stand full of information and advice on all aspects of lung health both for patients and their carers.
We gave a lift to Brian from Swansea group and met up with others from Swansea, who shared our table.
The drive home was eventful though, through what can only be described as monsoon conditions.
