Luna & Dips Tick to colour in!

As many of you know we’re hoping to raise money to help publish the children’s book ‘The Adventures of Luna & Dips (tick)’. The book is written by Jenny O’Dea of Tick Talk Ireland. We’d love to make Luna available to schools, book shops & libraries but we cannot do this without your help!

Dave Farrelly, Luna’s illustrator has kindly offered colouring-in sheets for children to use, to help advertise our cause. Titles of each character are printed on each poster & looks to be a lot of fun. Feel free to download & print the sheets for your child to colour in. If you have friends too with young children we’d be delighted if you could forward onto them to help spread the word 🙂

PDF colouring in sheets are available for download below..

Sponsor Run in Aid of Simon Millington who passed away after a long struggle with Lyme Disease.

National Air Traffic Services (NATS) to take part in the Great South Run on 24th October 2010

The NATS team decision to run the Great South Run for BADA-UK came about when a colleague and very close friend contracted Lyme disease and tragically passed away in February 2010. After learning about the work of the charity, they have pledged to complete this event to raise funds and awareness for BADA-UK.

Simon Millington 1962 – 2010

Simon sadly died after an intolerable struggle with Lyme disease. He was a very talented man whose loss is a dreadful tragedy to his family, friends, colleagues and neighbours. Simon will especially be remembered for his daring and adventurous exploits, which could be breathtaking. He once skied from the Piz Gloria restaurant, Schilthorn, in Switzerland (which is where the James Bond movie, “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service” was set), carrying a souvenir tray! Although he will be remembered with sadness, he will also leave those who knew and loved him with some wonderful memories.

You can sponsor National Air Traffic Services Team (NATS) online by donating securely through Just Giving, Via Paypal or through Charities Aid Foundation. You can also mail a cheque to BADA-UK if preferred.

Go to BADA’s website to complete your donations & pass along to family & friends:

With best wishes, Tick Talk Ireland
