Isle of Man
We would like to welcome
Cheryl Smethurst as the CHICS representative on the Isle
of Man. Cheryl is the mum of Charlotte and Grace and has
very kindly volunteered her time to be a contact point on
the Island. Any new families can be referred to Cheryl
and hopefully she will be able to offer support and give
lots of useful information. As it is expensive for the
families to come over to the main land to attend events
etc we hope they will begin to organise events on the
island that all the children can enjoy.
Offer via Northern Lights:
Do you have a child who will be between 6 and 1/2 to 10
