Fundraiser of the week - Nicola's skydive

June 28, 2019

Our fundraiser of the week is Nicola, who has completed a sponsored skydive on behalf of our charity. So far her fundraiser has managed to raise us an incredible £551.

When speaking about her reasons for fundraising, Nicola tells us that “I chose Action for M.E. because of a dear friend who inspires me every day. Despite being the same age, we live very different lives. Whilst I have the ability to plan months ahead, book trips abroad, run around with my daughter, she is hoping that she will feel well enough to shower, make a meal or see a friend. 13 years later and I still admire her resilience and if anything, she has taught me that life is what you make it, it's all about attitude.

"M.E. affects approximately 250,000 people in the UK yet it's not a disease we hear a lot about but getting the right help and care can really improve a person's quality of life. This isn't just fundraising for the charity but I also want to raise awareness for this invisible but debilitating disease."

We’d like to thank Nicola for supporting the work that we do. You can find her JustGiving page here.
