Curry with M.E. total so far: an amazing £10,585
April 28, 2020
We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has supported our CEO Sonya Chowdhury's 2.6 Challenge.
Her take on this UK-wide campaign is Curry for M.E., walking 2.6 miles to deliver 170+ homemade curries to neighbours in return for donations!
"My youngest son Danny got a chest infection just after his 11th birthday, a year after I became CEO of Action for M.E.," says Sonya. "He never got better and was later diagnosed with M.E. Missing out on playing sport and the isolation from not being able to socialise with friends have been major issues for Danny. As with so many others living with chronic and often non-visible conditions, 'lockdown' is nothing new.
"I wanted to combine my Bangladeshi roots and my passion for cooking with raising money for Action for M.E.’s much-needed Crisis, Support and Advocacy Service."
So far Sonya has raised £10,585 - and every donation is still being doubled, thanks to one of our generous donors. Every penny will help us reach even more people with M.E. who need our urgent support.
