FAMILIES are urged to dress up as their favourite book character next Sunday (May 24) and take part in a sponsored walk for the Cleft Lip and Palate Association (CLAPA) .
Redditch resident Selena Foster, whose daughter Lorena was born with a cleft lip and palate in October 2012, has arranged the event, which starts at 11am in Arrow Valley Country Park.
She added: “CLAPA has been an invaluable service for us since Lorena’s diagnosis at our 20 week scan to the present day.
“The Facebook support group has led me to meet many other families affected by cleft, which has helped with the many questions I had – I was never judged and was welcomed with open arms.”
The sponsored event is part of CLAPA’s annual awareness week, which runs until May 17 and everyone is encouraged to come dressed up as their favorite book character.
Visit www.clapa.com to take part and every walker will get a free CLAPA t-shirt.
