Hello and welcome to this, my first post. I am still relatively new to the organisation; my role is to support Education, Research and Public Affairs... basically I do a little bit of everything! I am heavily involved in organising events and one of my latest projects is our Being Together days - events for women living with and beyond ovarian cancer.

Finding the right venues for these events requires a lot of work and we give great consideration to the various elements that will make the event work well, such as facilities, comfort and ambience. It is really important to us that women feel comfortable and positive about their experience at the event, throughout the whole day.

We are proud to announce that the next event will be held in the Bristol City Centre Marriott hotel on the 13th November. The team at the Bristol Marriott has been extremely kind in accommodating our charity budgets - I love a bit of negotiation! And we have created a fun and exciting programme for the day. In planning it we wanted to include some new workshops to make the day more fun. So we're introducing a new arts and crafts session that Julie Roberts, a local expert will be leading  for us. I think this will be really enjoyable for the women who take part - what better way to spend an hour than a hands-on workshop making something that you can take away with you at the end of the day.

We still have places available and would love for you to join us if you are interested. Just pop me an email or call me on 0207 923 5475.

We also have confirmed dates for London: 30th January 2013 & Newcastle: 8th March 2013. The venues are yet to be confirmed, but you can get in touch and register your interest.

I look forward to seeing you at our events.

Mary
