WRITE AWAY. This penfriend club acts as a "special family" for children and young people with special needs. It has members who are asthmatic or dyslexic, some who "just don't seem to have any friends", and some who are terminally ill. Many have no special needs themselves, but their siblings do. Details: 29 Crawford Street, London W1H 1PL.
