Our fundraiser of the week is Rachel Ephgrave, who is organising a series of events and activities for Action for M.E.
Rachel’s first challenge involved giving up a treat for a week – such as chocolate or wine - and asking her followers to join her.
Rachel is posting up all her challenges on her Facebook page Make M.E. History, where you can follow her progress and join in with her challenges.
Talking about her reasons for supporting us, Rachel said: “This disease has hit my family hard with myself, my daughter and my sister all affected, along with 250,000 other people in the UK and millions worldwide.
“As a sufferer myself I am limited as to what I can do to raise funds, but will continue to do what little I can. With your support we can make a real difference.
“I am raising money for Action for M.E., the UK's leading charity for people with M.E. and their carers. They provide support and information to people with M.E. whilst campaigning hard for better public services and more research into the illness. Please give generously to help those affected. Thank you.”
