Hello Again website

Read about this exciting new project, sponsored by Dan's Fund for Burns, and browse the associated website.

Designed to support young people transitioning from children's burns services, the site aims to provide a helpful source of information for these young people, their parents/carers and health professionals alike.

Take a look at the Feature Article on our Home page, and read some more on our Current News page >>>

Sophie Thompson

Our Patron, Sophie Thompson, continues to keep more than busy. She is playing the role of Captain Hook in Peter Pan at the National Theatre from mid November, so why try to go and see it!


As well as her cooking book "My Family Kitchen", which is hugely entertaining reading, if you are looking for Christmas gifts for 6-7 year olds, try "Zoo Boy", published last year, and her forthcoming "Zoo Boy and the Jewel Thieves"...!
