Hi everyone, sorry not been in touch for a while I have had a busy old few weeks, starting off with our family day here in the North West on the 18th March. I am pleased to report it was the biggest one the Trust has ever done with 19 families coming along to enjoy the fun and companionship of the day. The children enjoyed learning circus skills courtesy of “Circus Jim” and then make lovely presents for their mums as it was Mothers Day. We ran a great parents session in the morning where we got onto the topic of “After Affects, School and Education” which was quite topical with the Trust Education Campaign and the fact that we are now really starting to support families through what can be a difficult time when a child is showing after affects of meningitis within school i.e. learning difficulties, concentration, memory loss (not able to retain the information), to name but a few. The Trust’s young ambassador Alex Williams gave an uplifting and motivational talk to the mums and dads around why “meningitis doesn’t have to mean you can’t achieve” and boy is he a prime example of that! Watch this space……. With Alex. We had the local fire men come along for the 2nd year and the children loved that, dressing up and firing the hoses. All in all it was a great day, new friends were made, including mums and dads with other mums and dads and everyone went away having such a fab day, if not a little covered in paint and tired. I would say the Meningitis Trust at its best…. But I am not biased honest.
Have a good weekend one and all.
