Out & About this October

TwinsClubPlus Logo October is the month for things that go ‘bump’ in the night.

But now also bump in the day it seems! As on the 20th October Greenwich & Lewisham TwinsClubPlus will be holding its Annual Autumn Table Top Sale. These events are jam packed with well priced new & nearly new items from households with multiple birth babies (phew!) and range from clothes & toys through to books & equipment, even quirky gifts & stationary. And Mums (and Dads) you need not worry because those canny folk will also help you fuel your shopping legs with great cakes and baked goods made by the twin mum’s own fair hands (plus coffee from everyone’s favourite – Starbucks in Blackheath).

For an extra special treat, in case that’s not enough, the wonderful Tiptoes & Tappers will also be along to help keep the kids entertained. Pregnant ladies “bump” the queue for free, otherwise entry is £1. A few tables may still be available, so please contact  twinsclubplus@gmail.com

Fright Night ChallengeOn Saturday the 27th those feeling a little more adventurous could always head to Widehorizons to take part in their exciting new Halloween event “Fright Night Challenge”. This particular challenge is for families to survive a night of ghostly encounters at the campsite, which can be found at the Widehorizons Environment Centre in Eltham.

As families venture into the haunted woodland they will be faced with their biggest fears including a cackling witch hunt and spooky stories. All funds raised will help support disadvantaged children to take part in Adventures which can change their life. Brave souls – get further information right here 

Breast Cancer MonthFor those that don’t know, October is also Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The number of people being diagnosed with Breast Cancer is increasing, but the good news is survival rates are improving which is most probably because of more targeted treatments, earlier detection and better breast awareness. The biggest risk factor, after gender, is increasing age – 80% of breast cancers occur in women over the age of 50. Breast cancer can also affect men, but it’s rare – around 300 men are diagnosed each year. Its a little know fact that Breast cancer is not one single disease and there are several types. In women under the age of 35, breast cancer is the second most commonly diagnosed cancer. Mums take care of yourself Mums and the ones you love with this handy guide.

Otherwise, have a great October and we’ll see you in November!
