Our crossed fingers selfie

Tuesday 29 October was crossed fingers selfie day to mark the 25th anniversary of the National Lottery.                                        
The Nystagmus Network received a Community Fund grant of £3,080 earlier this year to make our Parent Power project possible.

The picture shows parents and Nystagmus Network volunteers with their fingers crossed at the first Parent Power workshop in Southampton.
