Re: Newsletter on line

I'd love to put the newsletters on line.

We do have plans to do this, and to revamp the website to allow more people to update it; but personal circumstances have got in the way recently. Hopefully in the new year.

In the mean time, I'll put some recent newsletters online now.

Re: Reasonable adjustments post graft?

Hi Shelley, We have a similar policy to sickness at my work, but sick days relating to a DDA-related disability don't count. And the only people who can confirm that your disability is covered by the DDA is indeed occupational health. Thankfully though, my HR were very keen to get me to OH, and sick...

Re: Lucy Smith

Thanks all. Lucy will be missed by everyone who knew her. We had a funeral and a thanksgiving service on Wednesday for her, but we are still waiting to find out how she died.

Re: Eye lid stitching

Hi Anne, Yes, that member is me! Back when I had my second graft, it was decided that to give the eye the best chance, I had a donated stroma (middle bit) grafted in to my eye, and then it was kept closed with a nylon staple (the same sort that is often used in clothing!) to allow my eye to grow its...

Re: KC Group Survey

Thanks for the feedback, Andrew; I'll try to make the input box more obvious (it's a shame that it didn't appear at all when I was testing the survey, only once I'd made it "live"!

Re: AGM ROUND UP?

I think that what Anne was trying to say is effectively "Here's a area of the website only open to members of the charity". Following this up with "...and here's the password" is akin to putting a post-it note on your front door saying "key under the mat". We don't keep...
