Immediate Past President
Thank you all so much for your support during my Presidential year. I was over whelmed by how many people circulated with me and also got involved and supported my chosen charity, The Brain Tumour Charity.
I’ve been a Circler since 2009. I live in Clacton on Sea in Essex. I work in advertising so my message is usually about branding. Make sure you wear your Circle t-shirts out and promote our logo and who we are as much a possible. We need to grow and promoting ourselves is the best way to do it.
I am loving being ‘Inspired’ by Jo, our new President and its going to be an amazing year with her at the helm.
# Inspire I have been thinking about who ‘Inspires’ me the most and at the moment its Johanna Read. Johanna is our new Area Chairman for Area 30 in Essex. Last year she did two challenges; one was trekking across the safari and the other was to run 26 miles in the London Marathon - all in aid of St Helena Hospice who looked after her Mum before she sadly passed away.
This Circle year Johanna has challenged herself to cycle 100 miles coast to coast even though she has not been on a bike since she was a child and up until recently didn’t even own a bike! This is a massive challenge which she will undertake in September this year. In addition to this Johanna has asked every member in Area 30 to challenge themselves. To do something out of their comfort zone. I am not sure yet what my challenge will be. Happy to consider any suggestions!
Yours in friendship
