go on then count me in lol! 15-22 january is the miscarriage association! unless someone else has snapped it up?

So heres my fact!
The miscarriage association is a charity which helps families through miscarriage which is often an unrecognised form of baby loss. It is worth mentioning that 1 in 5 pregnancies will end in miscarriage.

hi everyone, sorry i haven't been about been on lates at work.

here's my fact for the day (s) VICTA wasstarted in 1987 by a group of parents of blind and partially blind children, they came together to discuss individual needs and discovered they could help each other, so successful the group was extended to a national level.
They also assist in providing guidance on entitlement to social security and welfare benifits, organise trips and social events, provide grants for equipment and toys.

hi everyone

it is estimated that there are 25,000 visually impaired children in the uk.
VICTA also work with smaller charities that are looking at improving families lives, and to devlop youth activities and establish new groups.

sorry mine hasn't been as infomative as the others

Monica seems to have gone quiet for Miscarriage Association week. Any offers for next week, or should we let this thread go?

21/01/2007 at 19:13
its a a shame but the sponsering seems to have seased as well,so i think we should let it go
22/01/2007 at 16:58
I keep checking in but I think you are right and that it has died a death. Thanks to those of you who did sponsor me.

Thanks to you all for carrying the idea so far. You can extend it to family/friends/ club members by asking them to pledge 10p a mile of their training for a certain week - try to choose the highest mileage week before the FLM!

Good luck to you all.
