Families affected by M.E. attend Downing Street

December 13, 2017

Five families affected by M.E. attended the 10 Downing Street children's Christmas party this week, accompanied by Mary-Jane Willows, Head of Children's Services at Action for M.E. 

We were delighted to be asked to bring some of the families the charity has been supporting, joining around 70 children aged between six and 12 years for these annual festivities. 

Also in attendance were Tottenham players Eric Dier and Harry Winks - plus Dennis the Menace and Gnasher, and Paddington Bear! - and the children enjoyed party games and Santa’s Grotto. 

William, Lewis, Caitlin, Ethan and Kiah, who have M.E., told us they were thinking of their friends with the illness who weren't able to be there.
