Our magazine Editor, Annie Schofield was so impressed with the truly inspirational TM Kids featured in the magazine, that she has decided to celebrate her big birthday (with a zero on the end of it) with a fundraising event – Annie’s Pilates/Pool Party – to raise funds for this year’s TMS Family Weekend at the Calvert Trust in the Lake District. The party will be held on 26th June at the Isenhurst Country Club. If you’d like more information about what promises to be a fabulous day, you can get details from email@example.com . If you’d like to support this event, even better – you can donate via her Just Giving page .
The next TM Society Family Weekend will be held at the Calvert Trust in the Lake District from 8-11 July 2016.

The TM Society would like to thank Bobby Allen, his football friends, the Association of Former Manchester United Players (AFMUP) and Manchester United for their very kind donation of £1,000.
Bobby played for Manchester United's youth team and reserves from 1953 to 1957. The idea to make a donation originated with Bobby and the AFMUP agreed. The donation was made on behalf of Bobby's son, Paul Allen, who lives with TM.
For those who use equipment like catheters or Peristeen, the SIA has a great service for members called SIA Healthcare where they deliver your supplies (as well as medication if needed) to your home.
The service has many benefits, including: a personal adviser (who will get to know you and your individual needs), combined deliveries of supplies and medication that will come when you need them (one call, one order and one delivery) and a flexible approach to placing your order each month by email or they will ring you. That means that you will no longer have to have an excess stock or unwanted boxes around home - and, the service can even deliver to you while you are on holiday. They also include Complimentary Items with your order which are tailored to suit your needs.
The service is offered to SIA members (you can join for free) who are using urology/bowel management equipment. Click here to look at the service on the SIA's website.
