Thank you to everyone who supported our Christmas Appeal this year – from pledgers who put a total of £1000 into the matched-funding pot to the many donors who joined us between the start on December 5 and the finish on December 18.

The appeal raised just under £2,607 with Gift Aid on 25% on some donations to come in on top of that. That will enable us to get a large number of our ‘Purple Booklets’ into GP surgeries round the UK – on top of the 4,000 or so we were able to post out after the appeal last Christmas.

We’ll be asking the pledgers to make good on their promises early in the New Year, although some of that money is already starting to come in. And, when we know the final Gift Aid figure, we’ll announce a final result.

Heartfelt thanks from everybody at the ME Association – from those you know already, from the office stalwarts and from our great team of volunteers, who do much of the hard work of getting us through the year.
