Hi Paul,

Yes I got mine yesterday. It is a fab magazine and full of interesting ideas/articles. I particularly also loved all the useful organisations and their telephone numbers too. Thanks to Lupus UK and the hard work that goes on behind the scenes:)


Thanks mstr,

I've passed your message along to Christine, our publications editor. I'm sure she'll be thrilled to hear that you like the magazine. She works very hard to create it each time.
