~ Charity ~

There are several charities which are very dear to me, and I've chosen a few for whom I would like to raise some awareness and funds.

Listening Books

If you love audiobooks and would like to help make them available for people who struggle with reading print due to illnesses or disabilities, then please consider making a donation.

If you'd prefer to support one of the charities who provide support and fund research for people with similar autoimmune issues to my own, then please consider any of the following:

Invest in M.E Research

Compared to most health conditions  M.E/CFS is woefully underfunded. We are in desperate need of treatments, testing, and a better understanding of the illness itself.

Crohn's and Colitis UK

When I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis it was considered uncommon in children and much of the medication was experimental. Things have improved dramatically since then but the number of sufferers is still growing.

Endometriosis UK

On average it takes 7-10 years for someone who is experiencing debilitating symptoms to finally be diagnosed with Endometriosis. Education - of the medical community and general public - is key to getting help to people who need it without delay.

Local charities which are very important to me include:

 The Rowans Hospice

Supporting patients and their families in the hardest of times, not only is the hospice site a haven for those who are struggling, but they also provide fun activities for people living with terminal illnesses and bereavement services for families coping with loss.

Portsmouth Historic Dockyard

One of our country's very best resources for Naval history, the NMRN help conserve these assets for generations to come. Not only do they help bring the history alive for visitors but are active in promoting history within education.

Portsmouth Hospitals Trust

Helping to ensure that patients have access to the best treatment by fundraising for cutting-edge equipment and facilities.

Foodbank PO9

A volunteer-run food bank in the heart of one of the city's poorer but most community-spirited areas.
