Margaret McLean

Thursday 4th November 2021

It is with great sadness we advise the passing earlier today of our friend and colleague, Margaret McLean. Margaret has been a Trustee for several years, many of these as our Treasurer. Margaret was a keen supporter of our many events and her cheery disposition will be greatly missed at our meetings and lunches.

Our thoughts are with Alastair and all the family.

Lesley's Ladies are taking part in the Pretty Muddy Event being held at Ingliston on 16 September. Lesley's friends wanted to do something to mark the first year since they lost their friend Lesley Watson to NET Cancer. They are raising funds for the Trust, so why not get along their and support them. They have already raised over £500.00 which is fantastic. You can support them via their just giving page here

Hope you have fun getting very muddy ladies.

Our Information Day this year will be on Saturday 23rd September at Maggie's in Aberdeen. We have some great speakers lined up including Dr. Alex Graveling, Consultant Physician in Diabetes, Endocrinology and General Medicine at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary. Our information days are popular and places are limited so please book your place now. You can download our poster/flyer here.

There has been a lot of talk at our meetings and on the facebook groups about nutrition and Nets. Many of our members are on special diets. Kellie the Maggie's nutrition advisor has agreed to hold an interactive event for us at Maggie's in Edinburgh. Full directions here . This is intended to be more of an informal discussion with Kellie rather than a talk, but it would be very helpful if you could let us know in advance what special diets you are on so we can tailor the evening to suit. Spaces may be limited so if you could let us know if you intend to come along that would be great. In the meantime you may want to have a look at the Net Patient Foundation Handbook on NETs which has a section on Diet and Nutrition. here.

There is a new nutritionist at Maggie's in Glasgow and we could arrange a similar event in Glasgow if there is a demand so please let us know if you would like to see such an event in Glasgow.
