At last I can run a PINK POOL NIGHT

I have finally had confirmation that Swimming After Surgery (SAS) will be having a PINK POOL NIGHT on Saturday 28th January at 7.30 pm to help raise funds for this worthwhile project.

There will be a raffle as well as other fund raising ideas which include paying forfeits for those who don't want to wear PINK.

The swimming pool will be dyed pink and the dye disperses naturally through the filtration system of the pool.

I know this from a previous experience in a pool dyed pink.  It is not harmful at all.

I am now busy preparing posters and tickets etc.

Best wishes

Swimming After Surgery (SAS)

Finally after a long time and a lot of patience things are beginning to take off. 

Numbers are increasing slowly but surely for this project and I am thrilled with what the project has managed to do so far.

Not only does it help women in the water feel better but it also gives them confidence so that they can go out and do things they didn't they ever would again when they had surgery.

One lady is back driving and now volunteers in the community.

The other benefits are amazing.  Socialising and feeling alive again is one of the major benefits of the project.

I am so pleased I had the idea and got on with it.

Now all I have to do is keep the project running with my wonderful helpful committee. 

Swimming After Surgery (SAS) sessions are held on Wednesday evenings from 6.30 - 7.30pm at Short Wood Primary School Pool in Wellington for ladies who have had breast cancer surgery.

If anyone wishes to find out further information or book a place then please feel free to call 01952 371941.

Best wishes
