Our New Patron

Posted 17th January 2018
Lady Fellowes
We are very pleased to announce that we have a new Patron – The Lady Fellowes of West Stafford LVO writes “ I would be greatly honoured and most delighted to become a Patron to Dyscover”.
During remembrance week we were privileged to have had a visit from her in her capacity as Lady Emma Kitchener, our Members learned about her family background and shared their WW1 family stories and also connected through our mutual experiences of Stroke. We formed a friendship and shared an outlook on the breaking down of barriers that people with aphasia in particular face. Alice Owen says “ We are thrilled she has agreed to support us in this way we are sure she will help raise greater awareness of aphasia and the work we do”.

Our Christmas Celebrations

Super turn out yesterday for our Christmas lunch at Woodlands Park Hotel, wonderful food, venue and company. So good to celebrate volunteering long service milestones and host our Christmas Top Draw ‘super draw’! Even better to send 18 lucky raffle winners away with luxury Christmas hampers raising a huge £721 in the process!

End of Term Cheese Tasting

Posted 13th December 2018
The Kingston AM Group celebrated the end of term with a delicious shared table along with a Cheese Tasting Quiz. The members were offered seven varieties of cheese and invited to name the cheese and its place of origin using aphasia friendly methods…. John and Tony cleared their board with gusto whilst Graham and Jeremy took a slower approach sharing their thoughts – Jeremy particularly enjoyed the Stilton. A wonderful time was had by all.
