"From feeling blue to feeling filled with glee, what a contrast to our family's emotional wellbeing that laughter hour made" 

“The girls loved it! They are still laughing at some of the jokes even now; just what they needed to pick them up during these current times” 

“It made us feel connected to some sort of normality, seeing all the other families and most importantly, it made us happy!” 

“It made us feel very happy indeed! Our loads felt lighter and we all forgot about the world’s troubles during this pressing time - you and your charity are so kind, thank you” 

“It was great to be able to do something fun as a family during these difficult times. You should most definitely repeat it and I have loads of other Duchenne family friends who would love to do it too!”
