Forging ahead with the fight against Superficial Siderosis

With the charity application lodged, a cheque delivered to Dr Levy in Baltimore and a meeting with Dr Levy and Dr Werring in London planned for next week, it's all go at The Silent Bleed.

Cake sale for The Silent Bleed at Santander bank

We've had a pleasant summer. It all started with a stand at a country fair in June, where we had fun chatting to the local community in South East England, where we're based.

Then there was a charity bake sale at a local branch of the Santander Bank. We were humbled by the cakes baked by the staff in their own time, on sale in a resplendent array of pastel shades. Such friendly, committed people.

The summer holidays rolled round and in between working on our respective businesses and days out with children, we put together the final documents for our application to the UK Charity Commission to become a registered charity. We pressed the submit button at 10pm last night. Fingers crossed.
