Hi my name is Mark

Just wanted to introduce myself as I was put in touch with Scope Forums by another charity. I mainly joined because I support my mum with her disability, she has a visual impairment and registered partially sighted, and the other reason is because I am passionate about disability rights, equal opportunities, inclusion and equality, and wanted to contribute as much as I can.

    Thanks to you all. I am well, yes. I do not have snow either, it was just lashing it down with rain this morning but its aright now. I kind of hoped I would get some snow as I like to see it, although don't like going out in it.
