At a recent meeting on September 7th , Dr Tirmazy gave us an overview of bladder cancer and some information on current research which was quite useful.We thank him for his time.

The Annual General Meeting followed , at which the accounts for the year to June 2015 were approved, and  existing committee members were re-elected by a show of hands. Thanks were offered by the chairman , John Ray, to Brian Dorrance who has resigned, for his past efforts and Brian Rayner was welcomed on to the committee. Subsequent to the meeting, Barbara Homer has kindly offered to join the committee and she is also welcomed. Minutes of the AGM can be found on the Members page.

Vanda Carter addressed the meeting on June 22nd on the subject of clinical research into bladder cancer and gave us an insight  into how the process works. It was very interesting and we thank her for her time.

Here are a couple of snaps of the event.




We continue to compile a register of members so that we can get in touch quickly if events are planned at short notice. Within the not too distant future we may be able to contact members by email.
