Bereavement Support Details
Thanks to a number of volunteers and their friends/family, we have continued to review, and add to, the collection of Macmillan publications available in the ESCA library. 

When browsing the Macmillan website I noticed that some publications have been updated. I would like to be able to order these as soon as possible, so as to have the latest editions. This is why, once again, I am asking for your help. 

If you are travelling to the UK by car during the coming months, or have visitors coming out by car and you/they would be willing to bring out a package of booklets, please contact me and let me have the postal address to which the booklets can be posted. 

Very many thanks for your help.
