NEW DATE FOR TRIKE RIDE

The weather here in Edinburgh has been miserable this year, cold and wet. My health has also been poor - the two are closely connected! I have therefore had to postpone my sponsored Trike Ride for Contact A Family, yet again.

I shall be very busy during July and August. Edinburgh is also very busy
in August with all the festivals - so all being well the new date for my Trike
Ride is now 10th September 2011.

The money I am raising will be used to support the work of Contact A Family's parent volunteers. They provide support, advice and assistance to parents of children with disabilities throughout the country.

If you would like to sponsor me and help support this much needed work please

Coming Out of the Ghetto

We're Coming out of the ghetto,
We're shouting loud and clear
About the rights that we have,
This is going to be our year.

We're coming out of the ghetto,
We are going to join you all,
Fall participation
Is our clarion call.

Don't dare to under estimate
All that we can do,
We have thoughts and with help
We are able too.

We may be small, we may not walk,
May talk in different ways,
But with our determination
We'll set the world ablaze.

Give us disabled children
The voice we should have,
Stop deciding what's best for us,
We've really had enough.

We know our minds, if you just ask
We'll tell you what we need,
Don't think you always know what's best
Let us take the lead.

We're coming out of the ghetto,
We're shouting loud and clear,
About the rights that we have,
This is going to be our year.

We're coming out of the ghetto,
We're going to join you all,
Full participation
Is our clarion call.
