WE, THE UNDERSIGNED, REQUEST THAT THE NAME OF THE DINING ROOM AND CAFÉ IN THE NATIONAL SPINAL INJURIES CENTRE, STOKE MANDEVILLE HOSPITAL SHOULD BE CALLED AND REFFERED TO AS POPPA’S” AND THAT “CAFÉ@WRVS” SHOULD BECOME A SUBTITLE TO INDICATE AND RECOGNISE THAT IT IS OPERATED BY THE WRVS.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

THE NAMING OF THIS IMPORTANT FACILITY WOULD ACKNOWLEDGE SIR LUDWIG “POPPA” GUTTMANN AS THE FOUNDER OF WORLDWIDE TREATMENT OF SPINAL INJURY AND THE PARALYMPIC GAMES AT STOKE MANDEVILLE HOSPITAL.

“POPPA’S IS A FRIENDLY AND EASY NAME THAT “TRIPS OF THE TONGUE” AND BECAUSE OF THIS WILL REDUCE THE REFERENCES TO JIMMY’S,AS IT WAS CALLED, THAT ARE STILL MISTAKENLY USED.
