LINCOLNSHIRE IA CELEBRATED 50 YEARS AS A SUPPORT GROUP IN 2017
Lincolnshire IA provides support to people who have, or are about to have, ileostomies and internal pouches in the Lincolnshire area. We also give advice and support to partners, relatives, family friends and work colleagues. We have two qualified IA One2One Support Volunteers on the committee who are willing to do home visits or at a suitable venue to both parties in the Lincolnshire area.
We hold two meetings during the year, the Spring Meeting in May and the Annual General Meeting in November; both are held at Canwick Village Hall, Montagu Road, Canwick, LN4 2RW. Both have stoma pouch manufacturers, suppliers and accessory company reps present. There will be a free buffet with tea and coffee available throughout the event. There will also be a just for fun quiz and a guest speaker
We hold four committee or trustee meetings during the year which are open to the committee/trustees members only and are held at Canwick Village Hall, Montagu Road, Canwick LN4 2RW.
We hold three social meals at the Lincoln Green North Hykeham near Lincoln. They are in April, September and December. The Easter Meal in April is £12.50 per person for a three course Sunday lunch with tea or coffee. The Late Summer Meal in September is also £12.50 per person for a three course Sunday lunch with tea or coffee. The Christmas Meal in December is from the festive menu and is £15.00 per person for a three course Festive lunch with tea or coffee. (The meals which are subsidised are for Lincolnshire IA members and one guest only). All have a free raffle.
We also hold bi-monthly Social Get Togethers every 2nd Tuesday of the month (January, March, May, July, September and November) at The Ritz Wetherspoons, High Street, Lincoln starting at 12 noon for a couple of hours. Everyone is welcome, the more the merrier. We will also buy you and your guests a tea or coffee.
