Schroedinger’s Lump – Dee Dickens

Our Trustees are incredibly talented people, and Dee Dickens is no exception! We are absolutely delighted to not only congratulate them on the publication of her latest poetry collection, Shroedinger’s Lump, but also thank her for kindly donating proceeds from sales to FTWW and our friends at Love Your Period.

Lisa Nicholls after finishing her Ultra Marathon

Congratulations, Lisa! We are ULTRA proud of you!

FTWW’s Menopause Lead, Lisa Nicholls (pictured), has long supported our members experiencing menopause-related issues, and also represented FTWW in the media and high level meetings, including the Westminster APPG on Menopause and the All Wales Planned Gynaecology Board Task & Finish Group for Menopause. She does so much in her volunteering for us, but the saying ‘going the extra mile’ doesn’t quite do it justice – she recently took part in a gruelling 50-mile Ultra Marathon, over the Brecon Beacons, to raise vital funds for FTWW.  If you’re as impressed with Lisa’s efforts as we are, please do consider making a…
