We’re going to be looking back at our origins as the Colostomy Welfare Group and at all the great things that have been achieved since then. We’re also going to be sharing our vision for the years ahead. Don’t miss out on what promises to be a special occasion, so book your place now to avoid disappointment.
In a day packed to the brim, there will be the chance to meet and make friends with fellow ostomates, listen to topical talks, find out about the latest stoma products and arrange an appointment with a Securicare stoma care nurse. With around 20 exhibitors in attendance, various manufacturers’ prize draws and our own celebrations, there is something for everyone. It will also be a great opportunity to speak to our volunteers from across the country, along with our staff, trustees and president. There will even be a ‘meet and greet’ area for people attending alone, so there’s no excuse to stay at home!
Fashion Show and Three-Course Dinner
Colostomates of all ages will be gracing the catwalk, modelling a range of outfits from casual to formal or, some might say, downright glamorous. If you want a taster of what might be in store, watch this clip of our magical 2015 fashion show. After the fashion show it will be time to enjoy a three-course meal. This will be a ‘jacket and tie’ affair, with tickets for the whole evening costing £25 per person.
The dinner will be followed by a presentation ceremony for several awards, including volunteers’ contributions and our beautiful Purple Iris stoma care department award. (So please remember to nominate your team if you feel they have given you exemplary stoma care.)
