Our fundraiser of the week is Georgia Pearce, who organised a Christmas jumper day at Westbury-On-Trym Primary Care Centre.
Georgina and the other staff at the primary care centre dressed down and wore Christmas jumpers back in December to raise money for us and awareness of M.E.
Georgina said: "I suffer from M.E. myself and have struggled a great deal but still managed to stay in full time work for the time being! Your charity and fundraisers I have come across on social media have really inspired me to keep fighting and this was a great opportunity to raise awareness in my workplace!"
The money raised was donated to our research appeal page. Our research appeal is still ongoing with all money donated being used to fund our future research priorities, including the funding of PhD or post-doctoral students to work on M.E. focused biomedical research projects.
