Hi Caz,

You can find members in our 'member list'.

If you go up to the top of the page, just below the thin multi-coloured line, you should see 'COMMUNITY'. Click on that and a menu drops dow, now click 'MEMBER LIST'

To save you a bit of time here's the page you'll eventually come to: Member info Ashfieb (http://forum.mndassociation.org/member.php?45-ashfieb)

You can then privately message or email any forum member (if the person has said yes to this option). I hope this helps. You won't see the persons email as this is private info, but the forum will send your message either to their inbox on the forum, or to their email on your behalf.

Best Regards,

Robyn

Hi Caz

The arm support was supplied free of charge by the gadget Department of my local NHS hospital.

As I can no longer able to use the arm support I have just sent them an e-mail to see if it would be okay to pass the equipment onto you, I will let you know as soon as I have a reply.

Cheers Barry

Hi Caz
just had this quick reply " Sorry to hear you can no longer make use of it. Yours was funded by MNDA so feel free to pass it on to the friend and if he contacts me I will do any adjustments adaptations etc. feel free to pass on my e mail address or contact details"

I live in Hessle, Yorkshire, the equipment is probably too heavy/bulky to post, are you able to collect it ?

Cheers Barry

Hi Caz and Barry
I live in Rugby and I have a sales meeting in Melbourne near York on the 18th of April so if Barry wasn't far from there I could pick it up and as I'm not far from Northants then I could get it to you Caz. Hope this would help as I am still working and cover a large area around the country so it would save a lot of hassle from Caz's point and save Barry packing it up, so let me know and maybe we can get it down here for you.

that would be absolutely brilliant!if barry could contact you and give his home details if it was convenient then if you could get it to the northampton mnda branch one of the connect team said she could bring it to me as she lives in the same town.I cant believe how generous everybody is being in this very difficult time for us.Its still very difficult to take in .x
