Think Pink! – The Review

Last Monday night, we held our Pink-themed meeting in Offshore Coffee House in Glasgow’s West End.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so Think Pink seemed like an apt theme for this meeting.
Thanks to Gillian Mawdsley for suggesting this theme.
Please check out the Breast Cancer Care website for more information on breast cancer awareness, and feel free to make a donation towards this worthy cause.

We welcomed back some familiar faces from our previous meetings and were thrilled to welcome some new faces.
