Fundraiser of the week - Amber
November 01, 2019
We'd like to say a huge thank you to our fundraiser of the week Amber. Today she has cut off 16 inches of her hair (which will be donated to The Little Princess Trust) in order to raise money for Action for M.E.
"I have chosen to fundraise for this charity as I have been suffering from M.E for the last two and a half years but was only formally diagnosed in October 2018.
"M.E. has come into my life and robbed so many things: my independence, confidence, ability to socialise, attend school full time, my passion and my future career to name a few. But I am determined to use my experience to raise awareness for this little-understood illness.
"M.E. is estimated to affect 250,000 people in the UK, and around 17 million people worldwide. They call people with M.E the Millions Missing as they literally become invisible to society, 25% of suffers are bed bound. Action for M.E aim to raise awareness, support sufferers and their families as well as fighting for a change in the way M.E is treated."
