Please support our Christmas Appeal for the UK ME/CFS Biobank – it stays open until 5pm on December 17

Please support our Christmas Appeal for the UK ME/CFS Biobank which will continue until 5pm on December 17. There’s plenty of Matched Funding still available.

The link to use to donate to the appeal is

For the moment, you can still DOUBLE the value of your donation – until all the £17,380 in the Matched Funding Pot has been used up.

Please note that people who have already promised to sponsor the appeal don’t need to do anything further at this stage. We shall be collecting your pledges in the New Year.

And here’s a very important PS:

Not a penny from this appeal will be spent by the ME Association. All the money raised will be handed over to the UK ME/CFS Bank which is run by staff at the London School for Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.

Friday, December 12, 4.30pm – £29,486.53 raised so far – with £5,930.55 in Matched Funding still waiting to be claimed. There is still plenty of time to double your donation before the appeal closes at 5pm on December 17. Thank you to everyone who has been able to go online, or indeed send cheques our Buckingham office, to help secure the future of the UK ME/CFS Biobank.
