Good Causes:

Here are three good causes which deserve all the high profile attention we can give them...

  • The Alzheimer's Disease Society, Gordon House, 10 Greencoat Place, London SW1P 1PH - provides information and practical help for people with dementia and funds medical and constructive scientific research - endeavouring to bring real hope into the lives of people with dementia and their carers.
  • The Multiple Sclerosis Society - MS is a cruel and insidious disease which attacks the nerve "insulation". The resulting loss of nerve function can have devastating effects. The Society has web sites at http://www.mssociety.org.uk .
  • The RNIB - The Royal National Institute for the Blind, 224 Great Portland Street, London W1N 6AA - is the leading charity working for the blind and partially sighted people in the UK - providing a wide range of professional and volunteer support services such as braille translation, talking books, information, teaching and care, and help in homes and schools. Visit their web site at http://www.rnib.org.uk.

Please support any or all of them if you can.


A Final Thought...

If you know of anyone at all who is in hospital just now, why not show them that the rest of the world is not so wrapped up with consumer goods, aspirations and mission statements that it doesn't care. One small note or tape or book can mean so very much. Even better is a visit with lots of news and gossip...
