THANK YOU - Northern Meeting

Thank you to everyone for making the Northern meeting a very special day which was held at Ryecroft Hall, Manchester on Saturday 20th 2018.

This was an informal day for families to meet other Corpal members and share experinces. The feedback was very encouraging, with one of the quotes being " Fabulous support and great to meet other families after so many years of being alone"

The children were entertained in the afternoon by  'Joy Melody' who was amazing and did some fabulous balloon animals for the children to take home plus plate spinning and magic tricks.  A raffle followed with some lovely donated prizes. 

Due to the success, we hope to plan more regional meetings in the future. If you are interested please email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with your area.
