Thanks Steve,

Can't quite believe it's going to happen now but it seems it is going to. It may be organised chaos...! There will be photographic evidence I imagine.

And I hope to see you soon with one of the PCUK meetings?? I hope so.

Loads of love

Thanks Cathy. We should be meeting on 9th October at last. After the meeting I am off to Wembley to watch England play San Marino. I am not really a football fan, but my colleagues and I are being treated by the Company as we have been productive boys and girls!

I expect the afternoon meeting will be more productive than the evening event!

Looking forward to meeting you all.

Thanks Steve,

Will look forward to that and I am sure the football will be great (sadly the eyes rolling smiley doesn't work any longer).

I'll be posting photos of the benefit onto the facebook page that has been set up for it. Don't want to give any more details for fear of falling short of forum rules but a search will bring it up.

For anyone in the dark about this, when my partner, Jonathan, died earlier this year we decided to do a benefit in the summer with proceeds to PCUK. The benefit is tonight.

Hi all,

I just wanted to post a quick update on Jonathan's benefit. It was FANTASTIC!! I started it off with a speech about Jonathan and why we had organised the evening and talked about PC then introduced the host. The event was hosted by a well known spoof comedian (forum rules I think prohibits me from giving names of the performers) who was a good friend of Jonathan and then we had friends get up and do a performance... Music and comedy. We had a raffle in the Interval with prizes including a holiday and a signed Corrie script (Jonathan used to be in Corrie). The second half was the same and the evening ended with a speech by Clara the deputy CEO from PCUK. It was a wonderful wonderful evening and Jonathan would have LOVED it. He was very present throughout the night.

Congrats Cathy it must have taken a lot of your time to organise the event but sounds it was a success and I am sure it as helped rise awareness about PC I like Steve would like a link to Face book if poss .

Hope everyone here on the forum are coping with the ups and downs that are going on with PC it's very difficult for suffers and carers but you can only take one day at a time .

Thanks everyone. That's really nice.

I'm now across the pond feeling a bit shattered. No wifi in the apartment so just catching up in a little cafe now.

Stay well everyone while I'm away
