Also, I might add, a sad indictment of the fact that we are not Better Together if people in need of care and those who care for them are unable to make ends meet. I don’t know Paul or Andy other than through Paul’s blog and I am sure they are neither more nor less deserving than any couple who find themselves in a similar predicament.

Please note that any donations made by post will not figure in the Indiegogo totals.

Thank you for your…
