Christmas 2015

| Comments Off

Layout 1 (Page 1 - 2)As the end of the year approaches and things begin to wind down here at Body Positive, Hull and East Riding (BPHER), we take a moment to reflect upon the past year and are reminded of the challenges we have overcome together and the tremendous accomplishments we’ve made as a community.

In these times of economic austerity many social enterprises continue to be hit hard, struggling to make ends meet, and BPHER is certainly no exception. With funding uncertainties and the expectation to do more with less this year it’s fair to say that this year has taxed the very resourcefulness of the management committee in simply keeping things going. Often however, it is in the face of adversity that we appreciate just how very much we have to be truly thankful for. The unwavering support of our members, volunteers, local authorities, specialist social workers and partners, has enabled us to continue to bring our services to the region in spite of the odds.

As 2015 draws to a close, let’s resolve not to dwell on the challenges we’ve faced but opt instead to celebrate the accomplishments of the past year, entering the New Year resolute in our mission to relieve the effects of social isolation and emotional distress for people living with or affected by HIV/AIDS in our area. We end the year with a strong and dedicated committee of members and willing volunteers without whom none of our work would be possible, and we thank each and every one of them for the gift of time they make to our community every day. With that spirit of commitment, camaraderie and dedication in mind we wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
