Attended by Sam, Tracey, Judy, Maisie, Dot
Lily of Cerebra (www.cerebra.org.uk) gave an informative talk on the charity’s work. She also gave out useful literature which Allsorts have added to their book resources. We saw an example of a child’s ‘Personal Profile’ which is full of all the information that would be useful to anyone not knowing the child. For example, a new school, new medical consultant or the people caring for the child in respite. Cerebra will help prepare and print these profiles.
Cerebra raise money by running a ‘Count Me In’ Lottery. Ring 01267 244218 for more details or visit the website. Also available is a sleep counsellor who specialises in sleep issues with children including bed wetting and night fears.
