An Acromegaly High Tea fundraiser, kindly organised by one of our members Rochelle. Rochelle has acromegaly herself and wanted to help raise money for the APF by having this high tea. There was a trade table of handmade items available to purchase and an auction of items that were donated for the cause. Rochelle spent a great deal of time organising everything for the day.
I started by giving a short intro about the APF and myself and then Rochelle spoke about herself and her daily struggles with Acromegaly. This was an eye opener for those who don’t know what a pituitary disease is and how it affects people in their daily life.
It was a great afternoon with a lot of tea, delicious sweets and a lot of chit chat. More than 55 people attended which was fantastic.
I would like to thank everyone who attended and extend a big thank you to Rochelle and her family for taking the time to organise such a great day.
