May Newsletter

Monthly Update


May 2014

The HASSRA Leeds newsletter is now available on the internet, packed with offers, trips and discounts for you to take advantage of thanks to the efforts of our team of dedicated volunteers!  We’re delighted that, for the first time ever, this monthly email is going to all Department of Health staff too. Ask me if you want to know more about craft club events, but if you have any questions about individual trips or club activities, please contact the name(s) shown on the club contact page of the newsletter.
