We’re running a cracker of a seasonal campaign this year and, for the first time in living memory, we won’t be asking anyone for a donation! Instead, we will be honouring our community of unpaid carers by giving them something to remember – a lovely gift acknowledging their amazing contribution to member’s lives.
Every member of the charity should have received a festive card in the post, explaining the campaign and inviting them to make a nomination. We have presents ready to give away and recipients will be selected at random. Please be sure to get your nominations to us by Friday 23rd December. We hope to send as many of the presents as we can before we break for Christmas but will continue into January for later submissions.
“Unlike most other charities, we are not fundraising this Christmas. Instead, we want to recognise the people who help you the most – the unsung heroes in our community.
“Over 250,000 people in the UK have ME/CFS, and the majority rely on the help and support of others who are all too often family members. They are under-valued and under-supported – working for free most of the time.
“We are providing direct support to members by helping them acknowledge that special person in their lives.”Martine Ainsworth-Wells
