Chest, Heart & Stroke Scotland
Sometimes, sadly, it's not until a particular illness affects us personally in some way that we get the opportunity to see the good work an organisation or charity does, or the financial help they need to survive. Stroke is such a prolific occurrence that none of us can disregard the possibility of being affected by it during our lives, either personally or through a loved one.

The jm-education multi-charity appeal
A lot of time and work has gone into preparing the jm-education website and the supplementary material it contains. Whilst no revenue is generated from this free web resource, we would like to invite those who feel they have benefited from the site to make a small donation to our multi-charity appeal.
Donating is simple: just choose the charity (or charities) you'd like to support and click on the icon where you will be taken to the relevant Just Giving page. Donations made through Just Giving are secure, easy, fast and go immediately to the charity itself, and you have the option to make your name and donation visible or remain anonymous.
There is no better way to show your appreciation of jm-education and all donations will be received with much gratitude. Thank you!
Macmillan Cancer Support
Cancer is a cruelly indiscriminate disease, the ravages of whose symptoms often require emotional as well as physical care. The support offered by organisations like Macmillan provides a redeeming light in an otherwise dark tunnel.
