I would appreciate hearing from anyone interested in visiting 'Lomond Villa' at Porirua Hospital from 6.00 to 7.00 every Thursday evening. The group visiting this particular ward (female patients only) was for some years affiliated to the Red Cross but is now a completely independent group. Called the 'Nicholson Group', the only formal structure is that the two conveners have to vouch for the genuine concern of those in the group.
The purpose is to gradually establish friendships with the girls so as to offer them some support while they are in the ward and if/when they leave.
If you would like more information or would be keen to join the group please ring Peter at 723-160.
