Abseil at Dinas Rock 2016

 I am really sorry to say that we have had to cancel our abseil this year for unforeseen reasons. It will be business as usual next year though. Hope to see you then.

Have you ever thought you would like to abseil ? Well, now's your chance.
We are holding our annual event in the Neath Valley in S Wales (just off the M4) 
Just call or email me and I will send you everything you need to know to join us on a fun day.

 Dear All
We will be celebrating our tenth birthday at our next meeting on 19th February. Instead of having a speaker we are all going to share our experiences of living with lung disease and the ways we have found to overcome problems. So, all of you have a big think, and make notes, of some things to bring to the meeting. I am sure we can all learn a lot from each other. This is for carers too, as you too are affected by the consequences of lung disease – it’s a life changing experience for all of us.
It’s time to start advertising the abseil again this year. I will bring some posters and application forms along to the next meeting and I am sure you will all help to display them in shops, pubs and clubs in the area. We always have such a good turnout each year and I am sure we will have the same success this year as well. So far we have raised £44,350 – it would be great if we could reach £50,000 in our tenth year as it is our tenth abseil too. For those of you receiving this by email, I have attached a poster. I would be most grateful if you could display this in your workplace, local shop, or another place where it will be seen by many. Thank you !
I hope you are all managing to survive in this awful weather – Doug is down the garden right now salvaging what he can from a garden shed and the greenhouse, one blown over in the wind and the other with a load of broken glass.  What a mess ! But our daffodils are out early, which always make us smile. They are such cheerful flowers, promising warmer weather to come.

Best wishes

One person in five in Wales is affected by a lung disease. We are here for every one of them.
