First off, a major thanks is in order to AcquiredMinds’ co-founder Kane baker who has completely re designed our website, making it engaging, attractive and most importantly a lot more user friendly.
Secondly, I am pleased to be addressing you on November 1st our official relaunch date!
Okay, so what’s been happening with me? Well, since finishing my masters, (see pic below) I’ve rejoined the gym, working with my personal trainer, Dave Flowers. Dave is a fantastic coach and more importantly a great mate. His rates are incredibly competitive, and I’d wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone, be it disabled or not.
This is in order to keep me supple, as well as gain some muscle!💪🏻 this is all done a The armoury gym, Brislington. (See below) I’ve found the staff there extremely helpful, and the rates there, like Dave himself are very good.
I’m also currently working on a cv. This is a hopeful attempt towards going into the world of work. This will obviously be a challenge due to my masters ongoing symptoms. Please see more info on the about page. These will obviously mean that any work type environment will have to be tailored to my needs, however I’m confident I’ll find something, somewhere!!
My family has continued to give huge support in this transitional period in my life, below is a picture of me with my mum and sisiter, at whitchurch cricket clubs annual dinner. I’m also pleased to announce that whitchurch cricket club raised an impressive £456.50 at their summer fest event.
In other fundraising news: a huge thank you to Janice sharp and susie moray, who raised £337.40 as a quiz! Really appreciate that!!
We were also deeply saddened by the news of the death of Chris cooper.
Chris was one of the nicest guys one could meet, and we like his whole family were devastated by his passing. We were honoured to be chosen as the cause for Chris’s funeral, where they raised an immense £561.74 He will be greatly missed.
I have also began or re began speech therapy at southmead hospital. My speech is something I struggle with, due to the area of damage in my brain.
Every injury is different, meaning that every person affected will be different.
It’s my job at AcquiredMinds to recognise this, and therefore to make every person feel appreciated.
Many thanks, and stay strong, lloydy. 💙💛
