4th May 2021 - LFWBD Starting Schools webinar
Thanks to Gemma Gardner and Carreen McCay for their time last night to talk us though their hints and tips when
starting nursery and school. The session was lovely and informal and members were able to ask questions
throughout the evening.
29th May 2021 - HBDCA Needle-phobia Workshop
HBDCA was delighted to hold a needle-phobia workshop on 29 May for LFwBD. Meeting parents of children with needle-phobia
as well as meeting parents who have needle-phobia themselves, reinforced why this psychological support is
so needed. Myself and the team were humbled at listening to people's experiences and long-term issues. We
hope that, in a small way, we have been able to give a glimmer of light to those who attended. I
would like to say special thanks to my lovely team, to Dr Kate Khair and to Henry McCay and his Mum,
Carreen, for sharing their expertise, wise words and 'top tips' with the attendees. And thanks too
to Chugai Pharma UK Ltd and Roche Products Limited for awarding HBDCA a grant which enabled the needle-phobia workshop to be held.
