"How can I help you?"

This past week our Bishop, The Right Revd Damien Mead has been standing in for Madame Beatrice Engramer, Manager of the Canterbury Church Shop, while she has a well deserved holiday.

Bishop Damien, who is a director and founder of the shop, was pleased to have with him his niece Megan, who is 18. Megan has Autism and sometimes finds it difficult to communicate. In anticipation of this the Bishop, following guidance from leading Autism Charities, designed a badge for her to wear to assist her in the shop. But not wanting her to feel too out of place (he claims!) he also designed a badge for himself! He commented that he should perhaps wear it all the time!
