5G is coming what does it mean for you?
We are working with a mentor
Our CEO, Nicki, has decided to step down from the charity due to heath issues, she is hoping to work on new projects moving forward. We are sorry to see her go and wish her all the best for the future. She has done an amazing job building the charity from scratch. You can read her leaving letter here. MCS-Aware will still be carrying on and we are now settled in our new building, still in Hitchin, Hertfordshire. When sending any post please address it to: 8A Intech House, Wilbury Way, Hitchin, Herts, SG4 0TW.
We are working with a mentor, through 'Find a Cure' who we are hoping can help us with new fundraising strategies to bring in more money for the charity to help move us forward.

The new detox your sleep report has been put together by Made Safe.org showing how important it is to create a healthy sleep environment. Listed below are some of the materials recommended when choosing a mattress. Cotton: As natural material, cotton is much less flammable than foam, which means that mattresses made with cotton can meet flammability standards without the addition of toxic flame retardant chemicals. Opting for organic cotton ensures it’s non-GMO and grown without synthetic pesticides. Wool: Polyurethane mattresses tend to harbor heat, creating a hotter sleep environment. Wool, on the other hand, helps naturally regulate your body temperature by effectively circulating air within the material. Wool is also naturally flame-resistant. Latex: When naturally sourced without any harmful additives, latex is an excellent alternative to foam because of its utility. Sewing: The safest way to adhere mattress components is to forego chemical adhesives altogether. Instead, some companies elect to sew (even by hand) mattress components together. For more information on what to avoid and how to have a chemical free sleep click here (and to read the full report). This article was written by Made Safe.org.
Here in the UK it's Organic September and I've been trying to use seasonal organic produce. This usually keeps the costs down and allows me to use fresh, preferably UK grown ingredients, so helping the environment as well. Apples from my parents apple tree, plums from a neighbour and blackberries picked from hedgerows locally. The food actually tastes better because I know exactly where it has come from and is pesticide-free. It's made me think about growing my own fruit and vegetables, any advise on where is best to start with easy-growing produce would be much appreciated.
