This is Maria Noakes, an ADI from Hertfordshire. She has had a terrible 6 months. First she fell down the stairs breaking multiple bones which put her put of work for 6 weeks, then she caught Coronavirus which in turn led to a stroke. Although she is getting help from the government, it is not enough to cover all her outgoings. Colleague Claire Brewster has set up a fund to help her.
If you are able to help, your donation however small would be much appreciated. Please follow this link.

Most of them are still working from home so it’s best not to post anything in. It may be sometime before they deal with the many sacks of post that have been received. Please remember that they are dealing with a massive amount of queries and problems and patience will be needed!
