At this years convention Little People UK held the inaugural Positively Unique Awards, where we celebrated the achievements of members of Little People UK!
This was kindly sponsored by Jay Moyes.
We asked for nominees in three age categories -
We asked that each application must show why the person nominated is Positively Unique; applications were open to people with dwarfism AND average height members of LPUK.
The nominations were sent, anonymously, to the LPUK committee for voting and a winner from each category decided.
The winners were...
Huge thank you to Jamie’s Italian chefs Karl and Sam for their excellent ‘Healthy Cooking’ workshop. They have kindly sent us the recipes for Pasta Genovese and Black Forest Chocolate Mousse, which we have given below.
Huge thank you to Genetics Disorders UK for granting Little People UK with a Jeans for Genes grant, to enable Little People UK to create a video about LPUK and its fantastic members. The video will show that regardless of any problems and challenges people with dwarfism may face, many people live fuliflled and happy lives.
Please help raise funds for Little People UK and other charities which support people with Genetic Disorders by taking part in Jeans for Genes Day 2018, visit their website for information and how to order a free fundraising pack.
At this years Little People UK convention in September, we had the pleasure of sharing a hotel with West Indies Cricket Team. Some of our audacious members managed to approach some of the team for a signed shirt that we are now putting up for auction to raise money for our fantastic charity.
