“ We arrived at Boreatton Park not really sure what to expect. We had never done a PGL weekend before and while we try and make a CMN family day each year we didn’t really feel we knew anyone that well. But we needn’t have worried. We were made to feel so welcome by the lovely Unsworths and soon got chatting to other families.
We will all remember the activities; the big swing was our favourite; Mum actually managed the abseiling; William proved to be a bit of a natural at archery; we saw a swimming pool full of children with CMN; our room was covered in wet clothes and soggy shoes after raft building; the children danced to Jessie J at the disco. Our days were planned and there was a perfect mix of down time and activities. The PGL leaders were so encouraging and helpful.
As adults we will remember meeting new friends, sharing and listening to others’ stories and feeling very much supported and no longer alone with your thoughts and worries.
Most importantly of all we have given Elspeth time to start building friendships which we hope in time will be a real source of comfort and strength. As she and a new friend walked out of the food hall I heard them laughing “Did you see those brownies were staring at us and we just stared right back.” As a mother, I try and meet her needs but there is nothing like her having someone who just knows and really understands what it is like.
Not surprisingly we would encourage all CMN families to come along to the next one – even the 5 hour journey there and back won’t put us off!! Thank you CMN!”

“ Thanks again for a wonderful weekend. Josh was feeling very shy and out of his depth prior, but this weekend has brought him out of himself and he is much more confident with school etc.
I believe that the activity weekend does more than meets the eye; the difference in Josh is great.

“ These last two family activity events have had such a positive impact on our family it was great to meet other families who have a child with CMN and share experiences.
The activity weekend also gave Maddie the opportunity to make friendships and relate to other children with CMN. Being with others with CMN is really positive for our children.
