Amazing London to Brighton cycling achievements for two our Members!


Congratulations to both Martin and Nick two of our members who successfully cycled from London to Brighton in Sundays record temperatures! We couldn’t be prouder and love that their families really supported them, the fact that they met up and were able to congratulate one another at the end is magic. We feel great pride when our members move on and adapt so well to life with aphasia we love the fact we can assist in reducing isolation and provide the basis for PWA to form friendships. Of course the proudest people should be Martin, Nick and Molly (Nicks daughter)….the amazing £800 already raised for Dyscover by Martin is also brilliant! Its not to late to donate click on the link here

Liverpool Marathon

My brother has been affected by aphasia and I know first hand the life changing impact this condition has had upon his life and that of his family’s. When he told me about this charity I decided to try and raise some funds to help you in the work you do for people like my brother Micky.   I am running the Liverpool Rock n Roll Marathon on 28th May 2017 and have set myself a fundraising target of £300.   Can you help me get there? The link to my fundraising page is http://www.justgiving.com/Marisa-Forbes14. The money goes direct to the charity. Many thanks for your support.  Marisa
