Another recent sad loss for the disabled campaigning movement in the UK is the recent passing of extraordinary artist Sophie Partridge

With all respect for the sad events mentioned above, changing the subject into a more uplifting theme, the updates about The Loonies Fest. All updates will be shared on our blog

Do come along to our monthly meeting at LARC next Monday the 19th June from 6:30pm to discuss this further if keen to get involved, please. There will also be a brainstorming session on Tuesday the 4th of July at Kingsley Hall between 4-6pm.

Have you seen the new Laing movie yet? Here my review


It's Carer's Week: remembering the millions of people working for free (if not receiving the ridiculous Carer’s Allowance of £62.70 per week for a minimum of 35hrs of work - April 2017-18 quotes). Let's not forget the many children often working for their disabled parents from early age, the spouses, friends and family members.
Many blessings to all the carers, and please do not forget to care for yourself, before caring for others.


This week is also Creativity and Wellbeing Week
