The next meeting of the McIndoe Burns Support Group at Queen Victoria Hospital – East Grinstead – is very soon on Friday 11th March!

It will be pizza making at Pizza Express.  Please contact Tania Gibson 01342414176  tania.gibson@qvh.nhs.uk for information.

Back in November 2015 we were delighted to visit the group and provide activities (chocolate-making and craft classes).

Huge thanks to http://www.thecocoabox.co.uk/lisa-marley/ and KPF Friend Beth for leading the classes!

 

We’re charity partner for the 2nd year running at The Ideal Home Show

We’re so pleased to announce that our founder, Katie Piper, is returning as the Fashion and Beauty Ambassador for The Ideal Home Show and we’re delighted to have been invited to be the Charity Partner again this year. You can make a donation when you purchase tickets http://idealhome.seetickets.com/  and there will also be lots of opportunities to support us at the Show.

In 2015 our charity partnership with The Ideal Home Show raised over £6000. This could, for example, help us to provide two weekend events for people living with burns and scars, enabling survivors to meet others with similar experiences, give and receive peer support, get professional advice and gain access to other services that we provide. We have found that these opportunities are empowering and improve survivors’ well-being.

“Meeting other people who have been through similar experiences truly was the most uplifting feeling I’d ever felt.   Almost like a huge weight had been lifted off my shoulders”.

Thanks so much to everyone who supported us at the Ideal Home Show in 2015, we look forward to seeing you there again between the 18th March and 3rd April at Olympia, London.
