What a busy month this has been!
AT LAST, the HNT 2018 VIDEO, 2018 INTERVIEW with Terry Bennett from Abbey 104 FM, and the amazing HNT POEM by poet, Larry Lagrue can be published LIVE!
Do see the HNT website home page to view all.
The Yeovil College media students have worked hard to get the filming all finished before the deadline, despite the hiccups and setbacks due to the two bouts of snow which meant college closure and meetings cancelled!
Larry Lagrue, has just published his first poetry book available online from Amazon The Friday poems are full of fun and yet can also cause a lump in the throat…and more can be read each week on his website….W is for Duck
I am so grateful to him as he has spent hours writing and perfecting the HNT poem which is all about life as a child with SEN, the struggles that parents and carers face, and what HNT is trying to do to help.
The FULL poem, which Larry himself reads, can be seen on the HNT Website
Terry Bennett and I have now done 2 or 3 interviews, including my being on his famous “Folk Tales” which goes out live every Sunday morning at 11am on Abbey 104
This month I was again in the studio…this time not talking about HNT and what it does, but talking about my experiences as an SEN mother. MANY people regard me as HNT but do not know that I too have a little girl with significant learning disabilities. I often talk about my four boys, all of whom are high achievers and progress through their lives with ease. For legal reasons I cannot talk about “Y”, although her vision of the world can be seen in the chapters from “The Adventures of Y”. The stories will eventually go into a book…so watch this space!
The 2018 HNT VIDEO has also gone LIVE. This gives a brief reminder of what has been going on so far, why, who will benefit from any fund raising, and how you can help…as well as snippets from the Interview and the Poem.
AND….lastly…my Just Giving Page is now LIVE…and the exciting news is that I am not the only one completing a marathon this year. As I race Ebony Court [Parathlete] on June 16th in my sports wheelchair at the Sherborne Summer Festival , sons William [aged 14] and George [aged 18] will be pounding the lanes around SHERBORNE, and Peter [aged 11] will be cycling!
The boys have all set up their own Just Giving Pages …so PLEASE support them as they do me!
Huge thanks Rachel
