CLASH 2012 started as a user-led, self-help group in 2006 to address the unmet health and social needs of people with arthritis and other musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. CLASH is based at Dock and became a charity in 2013. Dock 218 is an MSK Health Promotion Hub. The charity is committed to providing a range of health, well-being and digital services to improve MSK patients’ quality of life. The charity is a Host Organisation for De Montfort University Graduate Champions and Frontrunners Programmes. And the charity is a Social Action project for the Leicestershire Education Business Company (LEBC) run National Citizen Service (NCS) Programmes. Charity Trustees are committed to Partnership working to ensure its sustainability.
Moving forwards! As many of you may be aware from last month’s newsletter we unfortunately said goodbye to our chair of 10 years Christine Thomas, and welcomed our new Chair Conrad McEwan. During the last month there has been a lot of transitional changes within the infrastructure of the charity and there have been a lot of proactive ideas and developments taking place to help us move forward. We are currently in the process of putting some great fundraising ideas together too. We ask you for your continued support throughout this transitional period and keep watching this space for forthcoming activities and developments within the charity. Membership Renewal With Easter hot on our tail that means it is almost time for the annual membership renewal, we are aware that many individuals are using alternative methods of payment and we do ask for your patience as we get to grips with a now staggered renewal system. Betty will do her best to try and limit duplications. However along with the membership renewal does come the annual survey, when we look to get your feedback on the charity as a whole. This is the perfect opportunity for you to give us any feedback you may have and also make suggestions for future activities and support you would like or need. This is your chance to have your say.
