RAFFLE - Your chance to win this beautiful handmade classical guitar

This guitar was handmade and donated to PANS PANDAS UK by Steve Hill.  Steve’s guitars are based on the traditional Granada school design perfected by Antonio Torres in the 19th century. Granada school guitars are all handmade and individually tailored to make the most of the very individual tone woods used in construction. They are powerful in concert and the best examples fetch very high

prices.

17 June 2021 - Bristol Channel Swim

Neil is planning to swim the challenging waters of Bristol Channel from Swansea to Ilfracombe in order to raise funds for PANS PANDAS UK.  The swim will be piloted by Swansea Watersports and is planned to take place on 17th June, but this may change depending on conditions.

Neil comments:

"This challenge genuinely scares me - the tides are fierce in the Bristol Channel and the conditions can change so quickly. The charity is very close to my heart - my son Jack has PANDAS. 2 years ago we had not heard of the condition Jack had anxiety, involuntary movements, OCD, he was refusing to eat and was harming himself - he couldn't leave the house. Luckily a brave family who had a child who was suffering like Jack shared their story on This Morning and we saw it. The symptoms they were describing were identical to those that Jack had - after years of suffering for our family it was an amazing moment! We were able to get Jack the help he so badly needed. Jack is now doing amazingly, he is currently symptom free and is thriving at school."
