"Everyday I sit helplessly and watch Claire in her constant struggle with the pain and distress caused by M.E. This is an invisible, silent condition that can only be truly appreciated by the sufferer but affects everyone around them."
Our fundraiser of the week is Neil Robinson, whose partner Claire has M.E. He says:
"Everyone who knows me will know just how attached I am to my beard. However, provided I can garner enough support from you lovely people, the beard will go and the proceeds help Action for M.E. hopefully one day find a cure for this cruel condition."
We are thrilled to report that Neil more than doubled his original fundraising target on his JustGiving page to bring in £400 for our vital work. Thank you Neil - and we hope your chin isn't feeling the chill.
