Come and meet Ed and his bugs
Ed & his bugs are making another appearance on Saturday January 27th, between noon and 4pm, after the successful open event during the Theale Christmas Fair. In addition to the bugs, including spiders, hissing cockroaches and praying mantis Ed is planning to bring Mary Jane his cane snake. Visitors will invited to make a donation to The Village of Hope in India – a charity that Theale Wellbeing Centre supports.
Ed runs Phobia Busting courses on a regular basis particularly for those who are afraid of spiders. Ed overcame his own fear of spiders and now has a wide collection of arthropods and other interesting insects. If you would like to know more about Ed’s courses follow this link.

Lloyd & Ali from our Podiatry team will be visiting India in January to treat the hands and feet of people at the Village of Hope many of whom suffer with Leprosy. This is the second trip Ali has made – earlier in 2017 she visited with a friend who assisted her in helping in the bandaging unit. Ali has instigated a training program for the onsite nurse and with the help of friends raised enough money to support an assistant. Read more here.
