Kangaroo Club Information Day & Facebook Group

We are sorry to announce that given the need for social distancing for the foreseeable future and all the pressures on the NHS, the Kangaroo Club have regretfully decided not to hold a 2020 Information Day.

We are sad about this as our annual Information Day is usually a fun and informative event which is enjoyed by many and also gives a lovely sense of community and support.

However all is not lost as The Red Lion Group have kindly invited Kangaroo Club members to join a series of free, online webinars on pouch-related topics that they are hosting.  The next 2 events are:

Thursday 28 May - Janindra Warusavitarne, Consultant Colorectal Surgeon at St. Mark’s Hospital

Thursday 4 June - Dr Yoran Inspector, a Consultant Psychologist, speaking about the link between the gut and the mind

We are extremely grateful to The Red Lion Group for inviting us to join their webinar series.

Also if you are in need of support at any time, do join our private Facebook group - Kangaroo Club Pouch Support Group - which can also be reached from the link in the right-hand-side column, under the heading 'Resources'. Or by clicking here: Facebook Group
