Left-Handers Day is Friday 13th August 2004

We will be celebrating International Left-Handers Day for the 14th year running this year, aiming to raise awareness and have a bit of fun as well.

HOW CAN YOU BE INVOLVED?

Are you are proud of being left-handed ? Would you like to help us raise awareness amongst fellow lefties who may not have heard of us, and also give right-handers the chance to find out how difficult it can sometimes be using products designed for the other hand? If you would, then this is your opportunity to do something about it!

This year, Left-Handers Day falls on Friday 13th August, and we are looking for members who would like to organise an event either on the actual day or sometime near it (we know a lot of you work during the week so prefer a weekend).The suggestions on the website for the Day (still 2003 at the moment) http://www.left-handersday.com/events.html are some tried and tested ways you can help. Please click through to the site and have a look through them. If you can think of anything else that we have not suggested, that has a left-handed theme please feel free to let us have your ideas.

Although the Day is about having fun and raising awareness in a lighthearted way, it does get a serious message across, and we would like to hear from you if you have found a particular area of your life difficult because of right-hand bias. Please get in touch with us as soon as possible at
will@left-handersday.com or phone 020 8770 3722 if you have encountered any difficulties or disadvantages due to being left-handed in a right-handed environment.

If you are interested in holding an event, however small …..

WE CAN SUPPLY YOU WITH THE FOLLOWING, DEPENDING ON YOUR EVENT:-
Banners and posters, downloadable from the website at:
www.left-handersday.com/posters.html

What has happened to the new website?

Thank you for all your comments on our new website. Most people loved the new design and layouts but a lot of people were having trouble with it because of the need to set cookies, slow loading pages and problems with the shopping basket checkout. While we resolve these issues, we have reverted to our original site as we know it is fully tested and reliable and has our full product range and all our information on it.

We will keep you informed of progress, so watch this space. Thanks again for all your feedback, which has been very valuable.

Yoropens

Of all our new products, the Yoropens have been the most popular thing we have had for a long time. If you have not tried one yet, we recommend you give them a go. I notice that everyone in our office has both a Yoropen and pencil on their desk and all the other pens have gone back into the drawers!.
Yoropen range - The Yoropen is a great new pen design with an offset writing position and movable rubber grip that is great for left handers as it gives a really comfortable writing position and avoids any smudging. It has won design awards around the world and is now available in a range of colours and styles as well as with lead and coloured pencils. Fantastic product and everyone in our office is using them all the time now! Also, see the discounted Yoropen set in our Special Offers section


We'll be in touch again soon,
Best wishes

Keith and Lauren Milsom
and all at the Left-Handers Club
