Fundraiser of the week: Penny's sister Eleanor

September 18, 2020

“I want Penny to live life to the fullest and to not miss out on seeing friends, travelling or even something so simple as going to school."

Eleanor Braham's younger sister Penny has M.E.

"Penny cannot join in with activities and trips, without being bedbound from exhaustion for days later. She had to give up her love of athletics due to the illness, and sometimes has even found herself in a wheelchair because of it. There is little awareness for M.E., and I want to help change that, and to give people a better understanding of this serious condition."

Setting herself the challenge of seven sponsored runs, over seven days this week, Eleanor hopes to raise both funds and awareness for those with M.E. She will cover a distance of 35km in total.

"Action for M.E. have already helped my sister, and I want to support them in continuing to give help to others suffering from M.E., so that hopefully, we can find a cure."

Eleanor hit her £200 target with donations from family and friends throughout this week to her JustGiving page. Eleanor, you're a star! Thank you for helping us support even more people with M.E.
