Well, we thought that The Beast from the East had done its thing and been and gone, but it had a little last minute death-throw which caused us to cancel our March meeting, at very short notice, for safety reasons. We did not cancel our speaker, however, only postponing her appearance until this next meeting on Wednesday 11th April. Yes – that is correct, we have moved from our customary “first Wednesday of the month” slot for April, so that those who are away for the Easter week need not miss their Networking Breakfast fix!
Our guest speaker is an unsung local hero who will tell us about her pioneering work with the Ethiopia Medical Project. Jo Middlemiss is a founder member of the charity which she set up in 2009 with her cousin Maureen Burnett. The aim of the charity is to help the thousands of women in the area suffering from Uterine Prolapse, a hidden condition of almost epidemic proportions, which is fairly readily resolved. The Buccama Clinic is situated in South Ethiopia and every year Jo and Maureen travel out to work for a month in the clinic to ensure that the generously donated funds, raised in Kinross-shire and surrounding area, continue to be spent wisely and well. In 2016, Jo and Maureen were Evening Times Scotswoman of the Year finalists.
Jo is a Personal Life Coach and Relationship Counsellor and, with a background in education, she spent many years teaching children with learning difficulties. She has been married to husband Andy for over 40 years and spent much of that time accompanying him on army postings around the world.
