- Ellie Thomson 14/08/2015 commentsMy name is Ellie Thomson (that's me on the left!) and back in January 2014 I joined the organising committee for Mencap’s Team Dodgeball Championships; an annual event where teams dodge, duck, dip, dive and donate to raise money for people with a learning disability.
