Fear not, this isn’t another new year’s blog about resolutions or about how we can change our lives for the better at the start of a new year or even about the best ways to detox after all of that cake and cheese over the festive period.
The start of 2014 does usher in plenty of excitement and reflection for Body & Soul however. This year we’ll celebrate our 18th year in existence.
Like many of the young people living with and closely affected by HIV who’ve been supported by Body & Soul since 1996, there have been points along the way where it didn’t look like we’d still be here all this time later; strong, ambitious, hopeful for the future and achieving great things despite drawbacks and challenges.
But here we still are. For us at Body & Soul, this year marks a beacon of survival against the odds, a special birthday that we’ve shared with so many of our members, and now it’s their turn to celebrate with us.
We’ve got several months until the big day, but as you’d expect we’re planning on celebrating this one throughout the year and sharing this milestone with you all.
Stay tuned for more news about how we’d love you to join our 18th birthday celebrations in 2014!
