Wow these last few months have been really busy for the Committee of CORPAL. There are many exciting ideas coming through that we are hoping to develop and grow in the next few months – you will all be informed as and when they arise.
toSadly we are unable to organise a larger and longer Conference for 2020, but we hope to re think this for 2021, so please keep checking. We are disappointed that this could not be arranged, but mainly lack of support and funding. Corpal would have liked to secure a venue and offer members subsidised fees to attend, however unfortunately for the type of venue required and the amount of members replied, we could not commit the funds from Corpal at this time. Thank you all to those who repsonded. We will keep you updated.
To replace this, we are in the process of planning Regional Meetings throughout the UK. Recently there was an event in Blackpool which was open to the public as well as members. This was a successful day run by parents of a son with ACC. Corpal was represented by some of the committee and we are very grateful to Katy and Sean Thompson and the Lancashires Light House Radio for organising a fun day.
