"The ladies I have met through the drop in and meet ups are amazing, so encouraging and supportive and it's great to be able to speak to others who are facing or have faced the same struggles or troubles along their journey. I'm very early on in my journey to success and I'm grateful to have Jane and The Growing Club to turn to."
