2013 - a year of talks Thank you for the support thank you for the kindness


As the year draws to a close I thought now would be the perfect opportunity to say a massive thanks to everyone who has played a part in making this such a busy and productive year – as you will see below. There are far too many people to name individually but thanks to everyone who has supported us by sending messages, tweets, completed surveys, said hello when I’m out and about and invited us to attend events and raise awareness.

                                                       Please also see a year in photos 2013
