Welcome to May's NICE News! As restrictions start to lift we're looking forward to physically seeing some of you again and planning more activities. Our soonest event is our NICE Golf Day in June. Fancy coming along? Perhaps you're still firmly in 'digital mode' and in this case you'll be impressed by Mennamae's blog post below. We used our newfound digital skills to recognise Stroke Awareness Month with a series of interviews with participants, scroll down to have a read. And don't forget, there's still a place in the London Marathon up for grabs!
Barbara shares her story of when she had a stroke for #StrokeAwarenessMonth
May is #StrokeAwarenessMonth and we have worked with stroke survivors like Barbara who use our services to help raise awareness about strokes, and how Conductive Education can be used as an effective therapy for stroke recovery. Head over to our Facebook page here to see more videos and help us spread the word about our NICE services.
As part of Stroke Awareness Month, we're sharing our Stroke Survivors' Mirror Box Project. Follow this link to hear more about the project. Do you know any funders or supporters of NICE who would like to help with this project?
Hear from Mennamae in this week's blog!
Mennamae has been volunteering with us from home throughout the pandemic. She shares her thoughts on what that experience has been like, and what being a NICE volunteer means to her.

What a way to hold a Birthday Fundraiser for NICE! Massive thanks to Thomas and his family for holding an amazing cake sale to raise funds for us. Thankfully the weather held out and lots of neighbours enjoyed their sweet treats on offer. We're wishing a very Happy 6th Birthday to Thomas and his brothers, Dougal and Leonard. An enormous THANK YOU once again to everyone involved for raising a spectacular £776 for our charity.
Comedian Darren Harriott playing on Mastermind for NICE last year!
Would you like to be on Mastermind? 😁  🧠

The producers of Mastermind are looking for new players!
What type of people are they looking for?

They are looking to cast a diverse range of people throughout the whole of the UK. Anyone can apply as long they are aged 18 or over and are a resident of UK (including the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man). You will need some General Knowledge, but they are really interested in your 3 specialist subjects – the wider the range the better! As well regular quizzers, they also want to encourage people who might not usually apply for a quiz show to get involved! Applications close on Monday 24th May 2021 at midnight.
Please get in touch with us if you would like more information or to find out how to apply
All sponsorship raised would cover the additional costs needed to give children like Eryk, Isaac and Orlaith the support they need in school. We won't be setting sponsorship targets for the winner who is drawn to meet, that's up to them - we just ask that they aim to raise as much as you can for the children in Red Boots School.

Do you want a shot in our draw for the place, to help provide vital therapy for children like Eryk, Isaac and Orlaith?
We will be holding the draw and announcing the lucky winner next week. Please email Annie to enter yourself into the draw by Monday 24th before 10am - 
We are hosting our annual Golf Day on the 30 June at Edgbaston Golf Club, we welcome everyone who loves golf to come and join us!

It's £420 for a team of four, please get in touch with Hannah if you would like to take a team.
