I'm so pleased.

I used to run the Mencap press office, about 10 years ago.

I dont know how you vote

her school have chosen her and sorted it all out. The pics are gorgeous.

If she wins her pics and story will be put in the Victoria and Albert Museum.

It is to raise awareness of learning disabilities

Keane - that is fab and she so deserves to win (little poppet!). Is there anything on the mencap website? (scuttles off to look)

tamum Fri 11-Mar-05 16:56:50

Oh how fantastic! I've seen her photo and she is indeed gorgeous. I'd vote loads

Davros Fri 11-Mar-05 16:57:49

How lovely, I hope we can vote. I can't get used to you as Keane, I just think of Roy or Robbie

WOW, thats great Keane

Keane Fri 11-Mar-05 17:24:02

I think it might be a panel voting tbh

as the main objective is to raise awareness of learning disabilities to people who dont know , havent had contact with, or dont understand it iykwim

not how pretty she is

There was a really lovely photo exhibition at the V&A last year done by Mencap - pictures of or taken by people with special needs and some brilliant stories. Is this the same thing for this year? I will def check out the exhibition again as I really enjoyed it. Love to see a pic of your girl, too!
