15th Anniversary Tea Party, 9th July 2017

We celebrated Thyroid MK's 15th anniversary in style with a tea party on Sunday 9th July at Herons Lodge, Loughton. Many members joined us for a few hours to socialise and enjoy the tea and buffet on offer. Our volunteer, Val, attended with her ladies' singing group to treat us to a few tunes. We also had the pleasure of the Mayor of Milton Keynes company - he spoke with most of our members about their experience of the group and kindly cut the cake. A huge thanks to all those who joined us on this special occasion. Also, cake donations were much appreciated!



Community Foundation Annual Car Raffle 2016/17

This charity car raffle is just one of the ways we are able to raise funds for our group. Our volunteer Susan did a great job of organising people to sell car raffle tickets in the Centre: MK shopping centre during the Christmas period. She was determined to beat last year's figures...and she did! Approximately 36 hours were spent selling and the final number of tickets sold was 676. Well done to Susan and the rest of our volunteers for giving up so much of their time.

October 2016 - Healthwatch Event

This year's Healthwatch event saw dozens of people visit our stand with a range of thyroid questions and concerns.


It was a pleasure to once again be part of this day and be surrounded by likeminded people from different charities and organisations whose main interest is to support people through their health issues.


It was also calming to have a few Tai Chi experts demonstrating their soothing exercises nearby!






April 2016

Our volunteers were so pleased to pick up our cheque for £267.00 as runner up in Waitrose Oakgrove's Community Matters green token scheme. This is gratefully received from your donations during the vote in February. Thank you!
