2012 off to a flying start

I hope you had a great break over the Christmas and New Year period. The LBC team are back on board, relaxed, refreshed and ready to go.

We’re really looking forward to 2012 and have many exciting things planned for this year! The team are currently putting in place plans for this year’s Shave for a Cure. We have a big surprise for Shave Week this year (March 26 to March 31).  It will provide a neat way for so many Kiwis to get involved in the Shave phenomenon. Watch this space for more details!  If you want to find out more about Shave or sign up do visit our website www.shaveforacure.co.nz.

I’ve also been thrilled to see the wonderful work that is already underway by our Support Services team.  They have been busy helping patients and families over the holidays and it’s always great to see the impact of those wonderful relationships they develop.  A great example of this is the’ joke sharing’ arrangement some of our very young patients have with one of our staff members – she passes these jokes on to the staff and they keep us endlessly amused!

We’re very pleased that work has also begun on our office building renovations –there is a little more noise and an evening up  of the gender balance on the site! The first stage of the project involves the villa we call home, being given a much needed lick of paint and a tidy up.  Then we will begin outfitting an unused part of the building to re-house our Support Services team And set up a new patient and family space – very exciting times.

We’ve also been thrilled to reach 3,000 fans on our Facebook page.  It’s just so great to see so many people using social media to interact with us about their conditions, promote their fundraising events and find out more about what we do!  If you’re not a fan, or want to see what we’re up to visit our Facebook page  – https://www.facebook.com/#!/LBFNZ
