Inspirational Newson Health team step out in support of Royal Osteoporosis charity

Published: 28th November 2019

Dr Louise Newson rewarded twenty four members of her inspirational team at Newson Health Menopause & Wellbeing Centre in Stratford upon Avon, to a glamorous night out in support of the Royal Osteoporosis Society.

    

The Royal Osteoporosis Society Gala Dinner was held at the famous Banqueting Hall, Whitehall, London on Wednesday 27th November, to raise much needed funds for this important charity.

Guests, including superstar songstress Dame Shirley Bassey  and Strictly Come Dancing Stars Aljaž Škorjanec and Janette Manrara, were entertained with an awe-inspiring performance by Welsh Mezzo Suprano, Katherine Jenkins and featured an exclusive catwalk show by fashion designer Julien Macdonald.

    

Novelist and former politician, Jeffrey Archer, hosted the charity auction which raised over £69,000 from a glittering array of donated prizes and comedy genius, Alan Carr, hosted the event.

    

Osteoporosis is a condition where your bones lose strength, making you more likely to break a bone than the average adult. As bones lose strength, they can break after a minor bump or fall. You may hear your doctor refer to these as fragility fractures. A broken bone and a fracture are the same thing. Living with osteoporosis means you are at higher risk of breaking a bone. But not everyone with osteoporosis goes on to break a bone. It’s not inevitable, and we’re here to help you live well with this condition.
