I would like to thank the ladies and gentlemen who joined Gemma Martin today at the Garret in Mintlaw for letting me interrupt their intoxicated brew and speak to them. Wonderful to see so many people out spreading awareness for 22q and raising so much money. £2,300 before the party had even started!! Looking forward to seeing the grand total tomorrow!
As chair of the 22q11DS APPG in Westminster, and with my Ten Minute Rule Bill going through Parliament calling on the NHS to develop a strategy for detection of 22q, it is great to see the increasing awareness of the condition. Well done Gemma!
