We are thrilled to have received £2,500 from Croydon High School as we were one of the charities to benefit from their successful fashion show which took place in November. A special thank you to Laura (the daughter of one of our members) for championing Dyscover and for speaking so brilliantly (and from the heart) about the work that we do.

Frances Cornwall Coastal Walk update

Joined by Speech and Language therapist friends and supporters of Dyscover, Frances and ‘gang’ have completed walks in Gorran Haven and Mevagissey which have included sights such as Bodrugan’s Leap (War of the Roses) and Chapel point (Daphne du Maurier’s book ‘The House on the Strand’). However the rain has arrived! Very wet ‘Speechies’ but now only 35 miles to go!

15% of Christmas card sales to Dyscover – please support us!

We’re delighted that Sarah Stanley is again supporting our fundraising efforts by donating 15% of sales of Flamingo Paperie Christmas products to Dyscover. (10% of every day products.)
As a small charity, it’s not cost effective for us to have our own Christmas cards printed so this is a great compromise.
All products are lovely quality and produced in the UK from original artwork.

A selection of the fabulous products are available in the basket left in the meeting room at Leatherhead on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
(There are also labels in the basket, which you can stick in the cards, to inform recipients that the cards are sold in aid of Dyscover.)

Alternatively, take a brochure home with you and why not collect orders from friends and family?!

To place and order, contact Sarah directly (order form and details towards the back) or Liz in the office.
(Please note the cut off of 20th November for any advent calendar products.)

Please do support this fundraising effort, rather than heading to the high street!
