We have started building an archive of previous newsletters and you can see them all in our
Newsletter archive index

Welcome to the May edition of the Left-Handers Club newsletter.

We sent this newsletter in HTML format as a lot of people seemed to have trouble with the text version and did not see the full newsletter page and missed on on a lot of the information.

May Madness - New products at up to HALF PRICE

We have been very busy hunting down new suppliers and new products and have been buying so much product that our warehouse is now full.

A lot of the products we obtain are made specially for us and we have to buy them in large quantities to get them at all and we often have to pay big set-up and tooling costs to get the suppliers to make them.

We want you to try all of these items, so to make some space in our warehouse we are offering some of these big volume products at greatly reduced prices for the month of May. Our normal guarantee still applies - we guarantee you will love these products or you can return them for a full refund including postage.
Delivery is only GBP 3.50 anywhere in the world and free on all orders over GBP 30.00. Why not give yourself a treat or get an ideal present for someone else?

Congratulations to lefty Paula Radcliffe

Paula Radcliffe destroyed her rivals to win the 2005 London Marathon, her third title here, with a time of 2 hours, 17 minutes and 42 seconds. The world record holder struck out on her own after six miles and, but for an unscheduled toilet stop in the 22nd mile maintained a relentless pace.

Two years ago she set the world record of 2:15:25 when she ran with the men, but insisted victory - her fifth international marathon win - was the main goal this time. "It was about winning again," she added. "A lot of people thought that after what happened in Athens I was never going to be the same again. "My mind pushed my body as far as it would go in Athens but today my body felt good."

Kissing confusion

A few members have mentioned to us recently that they often have trouble when offering a greeting kiss on the cheek to a friend - their instinct is to move to their own right side and try to kiss on the left cheek of their friend. The trouble is that most right-handers do the opposite and it ends up with an embarrassing clash of noses or, even worse, lips!

We thought about this ourselves and agree that we often do the same thing but had never really thought of it as a left-handed thing. We would be very interested to hear about your own experiences. Please complete and submit the short form below and we will analyse the results and let you know next time. Also, let us know in your comments about any other experiences where you have thought "Is it just me?" and we will see what others think.
