The amazing Roz Corpson’s walking marathon. Rita has set up a JustGiving page for Roz & Lottie so please have a look and tell people about this, it has a great photo of Roz and explains all about the marathon and what the money raised is for. They’ve had £110 donations on it already!

Below are the proposed timings of the route, although I gather these will be flexible to some extent. It would be lovely if Butterflies or C’Siders were able to walk along with Roz for a little way, to give her encouragement, or even just meet up with her at the watering holes. We will all benefit from the money she is raising so it would be nice to show our appreciation.

Butterflies Newsletter 15th February 2019

Hello Everyone, It’s the middle of February already, and soon we’ll be one-sixth of the way through the year. When put like that, it does fly by sometimes doesn’t it? Butterflies has continued to receive donations in kind forms and we’re going to be getting lots of raffle-able goods soon, which we can use on stalls and at events. We’ve also got a lot of new collection boxes to put in shops and stores – so if you are out and have some loose change do look for our logo (above) on them and support us. This month’s coffee morning will also soon be upon us, on 23rd at Hendover’s Café - because it’s a short month it seems to have come around that little bit quicker. From me, not much has changed except an invitation to potentially have a more involved role at the International Federation of Aromatherapists, which is something very dear to my heart. I’ve written an article about oils, and about the percentage of plants that are made into oils (only about 120 plants, resins, flowers etc in total) called – ‘Aromatherapy – the undiscovered world’. I have lots more ideas for articles! Maybe they might find their outlet now… Regards Tracee

Hello Everyone, Hope you are all enjoying the snow today, even though it is melting fast. My daughter had a lovely time trying her first sledging experience on the hills. She even made her snow picture into a blog in the local paper ???? We’ve recently had a really great speaker – Jon Parvin from Healthy Homes Dorset - and we’ll be sharing with you some great tips and tricks for saving money in the home very soon. Roy Dean from About Face is currently putting together a crib-sheet with information for you all, based on Jon’s talk to the group.

Hello Everyone, Well- the New Year has got off to a blinding start. The first Butterflies meeting was a woodworking demo and Butterflies members had a lot of fun. This upcoming meeting (Wednesday 16th) would have been Knitting and Crocheting but unfortunately, the speaker/demonstrator has had to reschedule. We will get her back on board soon. Instead, Wednesday will be a general chit-chat session.
