Fundraising Focus – October 2022

The team at ME Research UK is very grateful for all the support which the charity receives from its active fundraisers. At the best of times fundraising can seem a daunting prospect but without your support we could not continue to inform, influence or invest in ME research globally. Our current projects simply would not be funded.

Feel inspired? Our Fundraising Guide gives tips and links to resourses to get your support off to a flying start.

If fundraising, it is worthwhile to check with your employer to see if they offer a Matched Funding scheme which will add to your fundraising pot.

If you know of any other fundraising opportunities offered by companies – contact us.

“Watching someone close to you struggle with an exhausting illness like ME can be utterly heartbreaking, especially when so little is done to fund research into its cause. With millions of people affected by this disease globally, it is clear that more must be done to bring an end to this vicious condition. Summit1 is a team of young lads completing the 3 Peaks challenge in harsh winter conditions to raise awareness and money for research into why those who suffer from ME struggle so much in day-to-day activities. We aim to summit all 3 of the highest peaks in England, Wales, and Scotland over 24 hours. Any donations are accepted with thanks, and we hope we can inspire others to take action similarly.” Will Thomson-Bray

ME Research UK would aslo like to thank the follwing whose fundraising pages have now closed.

Alex Lee swam the distance from Belfast to Dublin, 191 kilometres, in stages each month during 2021. With sea temperatures down to 6 degrees in the winter months it was a huge challenge which he completed successfully. Alex’s fundraising was part of Walk for ME.
