Database Update

We have previously made appeals to get in touch so we can keep our database of CdLS families up to date. We have found that much of the contact information we hold is out of date. People move house or change phone numbers but we aren't always informed of this. We need to ensure our information is up to date. We can do more to tailor our services to meet the needs of families. It is important for us to know where families are located for conference planning among other things. You may also have not received mailings from us such as our magazine, Reaching Out if we don't have your current address. We have had mail returned for this reason. Please get in touch if you want to ensure we have your correct details. It is also of immense use for us to have your preferred email addresses. This way we can reach you even faster with news and updates. We do not share your information with anybody else without your express permission and then only for research purposes. Our privacy policy is available on our website. If you have already given us your current details, there is no need to get in touch but if they change, then drop us a line, email or call us. Thank you for your co-operation.


Thanks to the families who raised money for us in Swindon

We were thrilled to have families wanting to raise money for us by selling handcrafted items at the Swindon weekend. Carol Langham, mum to trustee Rachel Davies - and of course grandmother to Ed - brought along a variety of hand-sewn items to sell. All were made by Carol and friends from her craft classes. Sales raised £260.50, with 100% of the money going to the Foundation - not even the cost of materials deducted! We would like to say a big "thank you" to Carol for her time and effort in doing this for us.


Big thanks also to the McLelland family. They too brought along a varied mix of items. Tazmin and her sister Saffron showed off their hand made jewellery, with the additional offering to make bespoke items there and then. There was also a variety of nearly-new baby clothes and a "guess the sweets" in the jar contest, all in aid of the Foundation. Our grateful thanks to all of the family for their efforts!

Thank you all so much.
