This month we were extremely proud and delighted to learn that our wonderful supporter Jo Wheelwright received a Special Award in this year's Pride of Stratford Awards in recognition of her exceptional work for the local community and Brain Tumour Support.
And the Lunch Club is a perfect reflection of the Brain Tumour Support motto 'Together WE are Stronger'. It has grown from a first meeting of 17 people to now having over 300 members. Jo says "I found out that since I founded the Lunch Club a lot of people have also lost someone to a brain tumour and now want to talk about it because it helps. Our get-togethers are fun and very sociable and as a result a massive friendship circle has developed."
As well as the benefits to everyone who attends the monthly lunches, the venture has also raised well over £11,000 to help fund Brain Tumour Support's work.
This recognition for Jo is so well deserved and we are thrilled for her and everyone involved. To read more about the Stratford Lunch Club and all their fundraising activities go to their Champion Fund page here.
