AVIVA Community Fund

Please vote for the British Thyroid Foundation Local Community Groups project

We are pleased to announce that one of the British Thyroid Foundation projects has been put forward to the next stage of the AVIVA Community Fund challenge. The project is to help with the costs of running our amazing local support groups and to enable their growth. As you'll know, for many thyroid patients the support and friendship offered by BTF local groups, such as ours, can make a huge difference to their well being and how they manage their thyroid condition. BTF wants to ensure the groups flourish and grow and are there for years to come.


The AVIVA Community Fund operates as a competition - the more votes we get the more chance we'll have of receiving funding. So to be in with a chance of winning these important funds we need your votes. To vote all you need to do is follow the link below. Voting is free and is open until 20 November 2018 so we'd be very grateful if you would take a couple of minutes and support the BTF in this way. Please spread the word and let colleagues, friends and families know how they can support us too!


Waitrose, September 2017


We would like to thank the staff and customers of The Oakgrove Waitrose Supermarket for allowing us to participate in the green token scheme 2017.


For the second year running they have generously provided our thyroidmk group with a cheque that will allow us to update our publicity material.


Grateful Thanks.

Local Coordinator



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!
