25th October marks International Dwarfism Awareness Day, where all dwarfism organisations around the world celebrate and raise awareness of dwarfism. 

This year, Little People UK visited two schools - St Gabriels Catholic Primary School and Beresford Memorial First School to raise awareness, presentations were given to pupils and staff, to raise awareness and celebrate diversity.

Caitlin Hellyer is a passionate fashion blogger, she was recently interviewed by Barcroft media about her passion and how dwarfism affects her style. You can view the short documentary on YouTube. 

At the LPUK 8th Annual Convention we were delighted to welcome Liam Smyth and the BBC Inside Out East Midlands team, who have been following Liam for some years to profile him and his life with Primordial dwarfism. The short documentary can be found on the BBC iPlayer

Little People UK delegates had a lovely time at the second Peterborough WizCon, where we met some lovely people and made some useful connections to help support our members. A huge thank you to the organiser Simon who allowed us to fundraise during the event and donated the takings from the raffle to LPUK, we raised a total of £66 which is helpful to support our members.
