Subject: RE: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
So some happy news from me. Although my feet have blisters and my hips and legs are aching. (A sign of age maybe) our family went to London to watch the Marathon at the weekend. We walked a few miles, Tower Bridge to Westminster, hence the weary legs, but the atmosphere was amazing.
Some of you know that our eldest grandaughter is deaf, she has hearing aids and lip reads, she has perfect speech and does well at school however her parents have always been told, by health professionals,that she does not need to sign. The National Deaf Children's Society have said signing is so important in case she should lose her hearing suddenly by a blow to the head or high temperature.So the whole family will start learning in September.

Bunny has an amazing godfather, who decided to run the Marathon to raise funds for the NDCS , it was the hottest day of the year and many runners suffered dreadfully, however Stuart completed in 4 hours 25 minutes.He raised huge 6,000 which will pay for many families to learn to sign. In total 140,000 was raised for this wonderful Charity.

There are some photos on my Facebook page(hopeless at blue clicky here??) feel free to look.

Sending love to all the crew
