"Working to support people affected by Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease,
 by providing information and funding research"

It's November!

By gum, it's cold today!  It was 0.5 degrees C when I took my son to college this morning.

Lots of exciting news coming up over the next few months - nothing I can tell you about just at the moment, but watch this space, and all will be revealed over the next few months

Today is #GivingTuesday worldwide - so why not use today to support your favourite charity!

Go to www.cmt.org.uk/fundraising to get some inspiration on what you could do to make a difference to people with CMT in the UK.

Your generosity this year has paid for some world-beating research - the MRI scanning project that we've funded with Mary Reilly's clinic is a real winner, and will make a massive difference to future clinical trials.  And you're also funding a pilot study into balance interventions, led by the lovely Gita Ramdharry.

You also paid for us to attend three professionals' exhibitions this year, giving us the opportunity to educate Occupational Therapists, GPs and Practice Nurses and Physiotherapists.

You helped us move into a lovely new office this time last year (where has that year gone?) and help more people than ever before.  Your donations and subscriptions pay for our staff to answer your questions, allay your fears, help with your benefit problems and much more. 

What can we say except thank you!  You're all stars!!

Christmas is a-coming!

Don't forget you can get our lovely Christmas cards in our webshop at www.cmt.org.uk/shop

Last posting date for us will be Monday 19th December, but you're not going to leave it that late, are you?  If you have any problems placing an order in the shop (it's been a bit temperamental recently, I need to investigate!) - just give us a call on 01202 474203 and we'll take your order by phone, or leave a message and we'll ring you back.

But what about an E-Card if you have difficulty writing the wretched things?

Go to https://www.justgiving.com/givecards - pick your favourite design from these, make a donation, type in your greeting and Bob's your Uncle, as the saying goes....  Making a donation and sorting your Christmas card problems has never been so easy!
Family Membership

We've made the decision to start phasing out Family Membership over the coming year.  The benefit, over and above single membership, has always been a bit nebulous, so lets make life easier for ourselves and abolish it!  It will make no difference to your membership status, to whether you can have extra cards for your children etc.  So don't be surprised if the option is no longer on the subs forms!  If you pay by direct debit, from January renewals onwards, we will adjust your payments accordingly - so if your renewal is June, and you pay monthly, your amount will change from June, not immediately.  Does that make sense?  Clear as mud, I expect!

If you have any concerns about this, please don't hesitate to get in touch with me on the email address below.
