Fundraiser of the week - David's half marathon

November 08, 2019

Our fundraiser of the week is David who has recently taken part in the Hever Castle Half Marathon.

When speaking about his reasons for supporting our charity, David tells us :

I'm raising money to support Action for M.E. and all the wonderful work they do. As you will see they are focused on raising awareness and supporting those with M.E. Their aim is to help end the ignorance, injustice and neglect faced by people with M.E.

“My son Finlay (10) was diagnosed 18 months ago with M.E./CFS. Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue syndrome to give its full name. That makes the second person in my family to have this illness. Action for M.E. have been really supportive of our family in some very dark times and I now want to help give back and in turn support others with this dreadful condition.”

We’d like to say a huge thank you to David for fundraising for us and raising much needed awareness towards M.E.
