MEETING OF MINDS CATCH UP
Meeting of Minds is a parent led support group which gives parents and care givers the opportunity to connect with key professionals in a relaxed and friendly environment. We support families in helping their children with additional/complex needs. We’re already developing positive relationships with many different agencies and charities, and look forward to extending these even further. We also provide the opportunity for parents to meet and support each other, which has already been very beneficial to our members, in what can otherwise be a very isolating experience. Confidentiality is very important to us…..
Yet again we are very lucky to have key professionals popping in for a catch up and to offer any advice that they can. This time we are lucky to welcome-

Unicycle 200 miles. Save The Children
Hello Im Ollie Green, last year I taught my self to ride a unicycle. Over 6 days starting on 10th April I will ride from coast to cost across the south of Scotland right through the Borders, I will stretch my journey over 200 miles, hoping to raise a total of £10,000 for I will Save The Children Syrian Crisis Appeal, i’ll do it unaided with no support. carrying a tent, sleeping bag and clothes with me. As much as this is for a very serious cause, I don’t think you can take anyone on a unicycle too serious, I’m hoping to make people laugh and smile along the way. I have a huge amount of training and fundraising to do, as well as allot of picking my self up after falling off
