Anne Devenney is hoping to raise hundreds of pounds for the Histiocytosis Research Trust when she take to the streets of Newcastle on Sunday September 18 and is hoping to gain much-needed sponsorship to help fund research into the condition.
Tina McBain said to Female Imagination:
My first event officially as a labour party member at the mayoral inauguration at guys town hall. Very enlightening I have to say. A very ceremonial occasion where outgoing mayor Jeremy Oates thanked those who helped him in his mayoral year. Voted new mayor for 2012/13 is Tina Clements for the Conservative party, who also voted the deputy mayor to be John Garner.
Tina, someone I know quite well looked very proud and I am sure she will do a great job. The leader of the council was voted for and current leader Danny Cooke was voted in unopposed. We retired to the mayors parlour for a glass of wine and a few nibbles.
We were then invited to an event at the Delhi Divan restaurant which was in aid of haenophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis. We were helping to raise funds for the histiocytosis research trust. I was speaking to Anne Deveney whose son died at the age of 17 months. This event also coincided with the official opening of the restaurant.
I have to say the whole evening was most enjoyable, the food was superb, the service was great and the atmosphere exceptional. Great company too, Peter and violet Seekings, Ken Norchy, Matthew McDermid and Matthew McDermid were all on fine form. Richard made a speech on behalf of the Tamworth Labour party supporting local businesses and he also commended the opening of another quality venue for the town centre, and said how we all need to support town centre businesses. Thank you everyone for a great first official outing for me. Ian had a great evening too….. He was also on fine form
