In the news - May 2013

Manchester Evening News May 2nd 2013
Cheryl Broadfoot and her son Bobby featured in the news again after he obtained his new iPad through the Hearts and Minds mobile phone recycling scheme.  She was also interviewed about the scheme on Radio Manchester on 23rd May - this is a wonderful interview about the benefits of iPads for children with autism, featuring Bobby's first word...

Cheryl was also recently appointed Events Manager for Hearts and Minds.

There was also more coverage of the successful campaigns by David Anderson and Toni Harwood, who have both obtained iPads now for their sons.
