I wanted to share with you a lovely little note I got last week which really cheered me up:
Our son Martin has been at Oaklands care in Hexham for 20 years it was the only establishment that could help Martin. He is very content to call it his home. Martin attends Minerva school of which you support giving your time and money. You picked Martin's Christmas card as the one he liked the best for his charity Christmas Card this year. This has given Margaret and me something very special for Christmas. We wish the you a very happy Christmas and good health for 2012.
You can see Martin's winning design below:
The Minerva Centre does excellent work and is now 11 years old; the charity continues to be a great hub for people with learning difficulties. A special thank you to Frances for helping produce the Christmas Card which everyone thinks is great.
