Pinpoint Conference Report 2017

Thank you everyone for making Friday January 27 2017 a wonderful day to remember!

We had a record attendance this year and lots of great feedback from parents, stallholders, workshop hosts and our speakers.

We also had visits from the Mayor of St Ives, Councillor Debbie Townsend, and the Mayor of Cambridge, Councillor Jeremy Benstead, and we're grateful they could come along and support Cambridgeshire parent carers and hear about the ups and downs of raising children with additional needs and disabilities.

Thank you to our trustees and our amazing team of volunteers - Amy Stace, Caroline Goodall, Judith Middleton, Sherie Paris, Grainne Sibellas, Sue Sucliffe, Emma Britton, Jade Hellet, Alice Husband, Sandra Wilson, Maggie Redgrave and  Mary Dockerty - who helped make everything happen. We couldn't have managed without you.

If you weren't able to come along in person, here's a round-up of the day's highlights...
