Accident info / update

Sally and Sarah were involved in a serious accident while out on bicycles in central London in December 2021. Further tests were carried out over the next several months along with specialist appointments.

These have shown the injuries sustained are significant including an Essex Lopresti each; much more complicated than initially thought which has unfortunately delayed all orders. Sally and Sarah require 12 months to heal with the hope for a full recovery. They are currently doing intense physiotherapy and hand therapy. Sarah broke several bones in her face in the accident. Sally has complications with a knee injury. Unfortunately, there are some complications. Sarah is awaiting another surgery and more consultations to work out a plan. Sally is awaiting an appointment with a lower limb specialist. We are crossing everything for the best possible outcome. 

In arm and hand news, Sally and Sarah are continuing with the rebuild under the care of the fantastic physiotherapists and hand therapy teams at the hospital here in London. They are making good progress and require care until at least February 2023.

As always, thanks for your continued support. 

Sally and Sarah apologise for this causing delays on productions but are slowly and gratefully getting things done. 

 

Sally and Sarah tend to each order personally, appreciate your patience and are eager for you to get your orders.

Please however, kindly exercise patience to avoid further undue stress to Sally and Sarah.

A gentle reminder, prints and items in the 'fanzine collection' have been made available and priced at favourable rates to assist with Sarah and Sally's rehabilitation. You may well have been directed to BLAG via a wonderful musician or artist and we appreciate and admire the support and community of it all. 

Sally and Sarah are extremely grateful to everyone and advise patience as part of the buying process. They're doing their best and getting items made, but slower than anticipated, just a small caveat, as above Sarah and Sally are hands-on with orders and may need a little flexibility regarding specialist appointments, intense physiotherapy and well-being. You will of course, be kept informed here or by email.

Please note: All items are made-to-order – with the exception of back issues – for uniqueness, thus production timeframes should be factored in when ordering. We make made-to-order items to avoid waste, so we very much appreciate your custom. 

To support Sarah and Sally while they recover, please browse and order items from the shop. 

They very much appreciate everybody's well wishes, support and patience.
