There are many ways in which M-CM UK aims to offer support to people with M-CM and their families, our aim is to complement the existing support that is available.
There is a well established international M-CM support group hosted through Facebook which is independent of the charity, you can find out more about joining this group by clicking on the heading above.
There is an active community of parents that work with M-CM UK to organise family days and other opportunities for people with an M-CM diagnosis to meet others.
2017 Family Day at Thames Valley Adventure Park
27th May 2017, Thames Valley Adventure Park, Taplow near Maidenhead, 10am til 4.30pm
We are really pleased to confirm that the annual family M-CM family day will be on Saturday 27th May 2017 at Thames Valley Adventure Park (TVAP) in Taplow near Maidenhead. We are delighted that TVAP have agreed to host us again this year. The playground is a safe and fully accessible facility that provides an excellent mixture of indoor and outdoor space and there is something to entertain everyone, young and old.
As per previous years if you want to attend you need to telephone and book your places directly with TVAP, you can find contact details and see the location and facilities by following the link below. Bookings need to be made by Friday 28th April, if you have not booked by this date there will be no guarantee of you getting a place and TVAP will release any remaining places they are holding for us to the general public. Places must be booked in advance, you cannot just turn up on the day.
As this is a one off event and not a regular booking TVAP will accommodate those people that are above their usual age restriction.
For those families that have never been before you will be asked to complete a registration form on the day that you attend which gives details of your family and your child’s condition. They ask for a voluntary contribution of £8 per child, which you pay on the day.
The playground does get booked quite a way in advance and they will not go over their maximum numbers so please do not delay in booking you place. The playground opens at 10am and closes at 3.30pm but M-CM UK have funded the extension of the day and we will have the facilities available to us until 4.30pm.
When you ring and book please say that you are part of the M-CM group booking as they are keeping a separate sheet with our bookings.
If you have any problems booking your place or have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible on 27th May.
