December 2010 Big Give donation matching
A sincere thank you to everyone who helped make this year's Big Give campaign such a success. The on-line donations made to the Big Give campaign in December 2010 were matched with STG£5,000 by a combination of the Reed Foundation and Candis BigGive. This was a big boost that helped to assure that Advocacy-funded research into the causes of NA can continue.
The Great Hawarden Trek for NA and Epilepsy
More than 100 folk in and around the north Wales town of Hawarden met this month for the trek around the beautiful Gladstone Estate. The event is organized by Gordon and Gill Parry in remembrance of their daughter who suffered from epilepsy and their two sons, who had chorea-acanthocytosis. The thousands of pounds which are raised by this annual event are much needed for scientific research funded by the Advocacy. Alexandra Irvine, assisted by the lads of Hawarden with the converted "sedan chair," again joined the walkers.
