Mousemeets is less than 5 weeks away and the final preparations are well and truly beginning. We thought this year that we would give you so advanced warning of what we have on our silent auction this year so you know just want you want to bid on. Now, this is by no means a finalised list but here are what we have planned for you so far.
This year, we will be raising money for the Stroke association. This is a UK based charity that funds research into prevention, treatment and better methods of rehabilitation, and helps stroke patients and their families directly through its Life After Stroke Services. These include Information, Advice and Support, Communication Support and Life After Stroke grants. They also campaign, educate and inform to increase knowledge of stroke at all levels of society, and we act as a voice for everyone affected by stroke.You can find out more about the great work they do by visiting http://www.stroke.org.uk/
