Well done to Jack, Abi and Brian for completing the Vitality London 10,000 for LPUK. You are all fantastic! 

Vitality

Last week was a great week of raising awareness for Little People UK. 

The weekend started of the proceedings with a visit to Yaxley Festival, where members were able to talk to visitors about LPUK and dwarfism, also meeting local MP Shailesh Vara. This was followed by 2 days at the Primary Care Exhibition where we had the opportunity to speak to Midwives, GP's, Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists and others within the medical profession to increase awareness of dwarfism and their importance within the medical field. Our final event of the week was at the inaugural Recruiters 4 U Roadshow at Peterborough Cathedral where we spoke to members of the public and also recruiters to raise awareness of people with dwarfism.

Little People UK were contacted about this article and sent a statement (which unfortunately, was not used) to accompany this we also sent LPUK's 'Midget' Statement.

We are disappointed about this situation, and it has brought to light how much we need to help and educate society. 

The committee are always working hard, but realise there is much more work to do in this area.

Kay Kelly

My name is Kay Kelly, I am 29 years old and from Southend-on-Sea in Essex. I only very recently found out about LPUK. 

I follow Warwick on face book and twitter and saw some posts about dwarfism awareness month last October. I shared the posts during that month and looked a little into the charity having not come across it before. 

A huge thank you to LPUK Committee member Paul Hinton who has raised £1,045 for LPUK. 

In March Paul had a milestone birthday and held a fantastic party to celebrate, he kindly asked for all presents be made as donations to LPUK. 

Thank you to Paul, and of course, everyone who donated.
