TALK and the Aphasia Alliance 

Carol Sacchett, our Chair, recently attended the Aphasia Alliance meeting on Zoom.  The Aphasia Alliance is a group of UK organisations that work together to:

  • raise awareness of aphasia   
  • encourage collaboration
  • promote good communication
  • exchange ideas and resources

We are very pleased that TALK is a member of the Aphasia Alliance. It's so important to keep in touch with other similar organisations and to speak with one voice.

TALK is very grateful to have received the following donations:

  • September 2021- £500 received in memory of Dorothy Baillee from her sister Chloe Armstrong
  • September 2021 - £612 donated by Nick & Nicky Flew from the sales of their 'Lockdown' book
  • November 2021 - £2000 donated by the Guildford RVS Onward Stroke Club
  • December 2021 - £100 donated from the Thornbury Rotary
  • January 2022 - Sadly one of our valued volunteers Steve Hand, passed away in January.  He had volunteered at the Walton-on-Thames group for a number of years and will be very dearly missed by volunteers and members alike.  His wife Jan and their children very kindly nominated TALK as their chosen in memoriam charity.  We are very thankful as this has raised over £2500 for the Walton group.
