Jennifer organised an informal coffee and social lunch meeting on the 26th of April at The Balloon Tree Farmshop and Café, Gate Helmsley near York.

Jennifer, Richard & partner Suze and Lynne & husband Sam all came along to meet everyone for coffee from 10:30am in a cosy private annexe off the restaurant. We spoke to about 20 people throughout the day, some coming just for coffee and a chat, others staying longer for a bite to eat. It was great to chat to everyone, old and new members alike.

I think it was the widest range of types of vasculitis we've seen for a while. We met folk with Wegener's (GPA), MPA, Churg Strauss (EGPA), Cerebral vasculitis (CNSV) and Giant Cell Arteritis amongst others. Everyone presenting in slightly different ways but great for all of us to share our similar experiences of diagnosis and treatment.

I think everyone enjoyed to opportunity to meet and chat with other people with vasculitis and hopefully we'll do it all again in the near future !
