Outsiders members enjoying online group chats

All of a sudden, the club has burst into action with our new Group Chats – discussions about everything from Self Improvement (lots of wonderful peer support going on there) to the Asperger’s and/or OCD, Everything Kinky to the local Social Group Chats. The latter provide a way for those who live in and near each other to discuss how they would like to meet each other and those left alone at Christmas, for example, can keep each other company. We hope these local groups will blossom all over the UK and, indeed the world, Our Asperger’s and/or OCD Group is run by a woman in Canada.

Outsiders’ Jamboree Presented by Mikey Argy MBE

The Jamboree is the Outsiders annual event to attract new members and for everybody to have fun. The date is Monday 6th June 2016.  We will have a Tactile Fashion Show with a bind members enjoying the sensation of touching the model’s outfits which are all lovely or funny to feel – silk, velvet, rope or bubblewrap. Members and volunteers model the clothing. We also have comedy, with Romina Puma, Snail Racing (where competitors around bound in cling film and race, tummy down on a slippery plastic mat.

We also have debates and this year the topic will be ‘If you are always trying to be normal, you will never know how amazing you can be.‘ – Maya Angelou.

Massive £50 OFF the Hold-it

Our friends at ‘Gifts For Book Lovers’ are offering a £50 discount code on the ‘Hold-it’, exclusively to ‘Outsiders’.

The Hold-it Lifts the Burden for Senior Citizens & Disabled Booklovers

Most people take reading and writing for granted. We learn these skills as a child and like most skills learnt at that age, they come quite easily. Sadly for many with limited mobility or disability, basic everyday tasks like these are a challenge, depriving many of life’s most basic pleasures — writing letters or e-mails to friends and family, video chatting with loved ones or simply reading a favorite book.

This is why Gifts for Book Lovers is proud to announce the addition of the groundbreaking ‘Hold-it to it’s innovative product range. First conceived as an ergonomic floor standing book holder, The Hold-it has evolved through strenuous design stages to also function as a multipurpose iPad, Air, iPad Mini, Tablet or Kindle holder.

The Award Winning Hold-it enables users to read and perform a number of tasks at any angle — whether sitting, standing, or lying down. It has proven especially useful for users experiencing severe neck, back, arm, and hand pain. Many wheelchair users and those with limited mobility in the hands and arms have found it invaluable.


Barrow Gurney Xmas Fair donating to Outsiderss

We are delighted that half the proceeds of this Christmas Fair will be donated to us, the first time this has ever happened! We have watched donors at a disability fair (Disability Awareness Day) put money into the collecting tins of the wealthy Leonard Cheshire Disability, but passing us by, because they are known and established and we are established but, as yet, unknown. Let’s hope this will be the start of financial stability and perhaps donations big enough to pay someone to take over from our ageing founder, Dr Tuppy Owens.
