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!
