Rather than a leaving present, our lovely Julia would like us to consider making a donation to a cause very close to her heart, the charity Say Aphasia.

Aphasia is a communication disability which occurs when the communication centres of the brain are damaged. It is usually caused by a stroke, brain haemorrhage, head injury or a brain tumour.
Aphasia makes it difficult to read, write or speak. It affects people differently. Aphasia affects around 350,000 people in the UK, yet not many people have heard of it. The fact that this condition is rarely heard of, contributes to the loneliness that aphasia sufferers experience.
All money received will be sent directly to the charity and will help them support those with Asphasia with online services, support groups and reach the people who need extra help.

Thank you for your donation. Lily Gatward
