Informal Chat and Sail Day 2009

Saturday August 1st Swarkestone Sailing Club

The day was a huge success for two families with very young children affected by FAP. It was the first time we had had the chance ourselves to hear the special problems this presents. Also how the families were trying to find information and help their child understand both the present and the future. Not the best of days weather wise but it was possible later on for those interested to enjoy a trip in the rescue boats. Also enjoying the ride were members of The Swadlincote and District Round Table who recently completed their own Cheap Car Challenge and raised around £2,000 for FAP Gene.

Of course Jimby and Cousin Jed have to get in on the act. However they did help look after the children. The other 20 who live with Mick stayed at home but Jimby wanted to add this to his own website www.jimby.me.uk
