Rachel's lamp-post challenge for M.E.

December 22, 2015

Congratulations and thank you to Rachel Ephgrave, who has completed her lamp-post challenge and raised £2,183 for Action for M.E. in the process.

Rachel, who has M.E., walked to the nearest lamp-post to her home 100 times over the past seven months. Her aim was to raise money for charity and awareness of M.E. as an invisible illness, which has also affected her daughter and sister. 

"It went really well but it was quite a challenge," she told the Gloucestershire Echo. "A lot of the symptoms are invisible. It's hard for people to understand. I want to share what it means to have this condition."

You can still donate through Rachel's JustGiving page.
