Do your own thing
Whatever event you choose to hold, your support will go a long way in helping people affected by ME/CFS.

No hair day!
Jet, one of our severely affected members (SAM), raised over £500 by shaving all her hair off for AYME. We asked her why...
Jet said "AYME has helped me during my most isolated times, by providing a buddy to write to me, sending me cards on birthday and Christmas, providing a forum where I can chat to fellow sufferers and make friends, and by having a helpline to give information or just chat to on a rough day or if anything is bothering me. AYME has made a positive difference to my life and I wanted to say thank you and give a little something back – and of course, raise awareness of this dreaded illness."
If you would like to raise funds for AYME, please email email@example.com or call 01908 379737.
