As the year draws to an end we just wanted to say a big thank you to you all for all your support this year. We really appreciate it. It has been wonderful working with you, serving you and in some cases having great discussions on how we can work together to achieve our aim of improving the health and wellbeing of the black community.
It’s been an interesting year for us as we wound down our activities in the UK in preparation for our relocation to another country.
As we wound down we did feel a sense of sadness as we have gained so much momentum in the UK over the past couple of years particularly with the work we’ve been doing around fibroids, getting the black community active through cycling, working with Diabetes UK to reach the black community in Croydon and providing support to African Caribbean cancer patients, but change is inevitable.
We’re now based in the beautiful island of St Kitts and are exploring how our organisation can fit into the Public Health landscape over here in the Caribbean. We look forward to serving not just the Caribbean community but continuing to support the black community in the UK from afar through the wonders of technology.
We’ll still be offering support to women in the UK affected by fibroids through our Fibroids Ask the Expert and will be growing the membership of our expert panel to better serve you. We’ll also be updating our fibroids booklet and creating a fibroids fact sheet series based on the topics that you’ve told us are important to you and we’re excited to be exploring the possibility of hosting a fibroids wellness retreat in collaboration with Noire Wellness.
Over the next few months look out for more changes. With our move to the Caribbean comes a change of name. From early next year our organisation will be known as Lake Health and Wellbeing, whilst we’ll have a new name our mission remains the same: to improve the health and wellbeing of the black community.
It’s exciting times for us and we’re really looking forward to the year ahead.
Once again, thank you for your support thus far and we look forward to connecting with you throughout 2018.
We wish you a very Merry Christmas, a happy New Year and a wonderful, peaceful, successful and healthy 2018.
