A young lady of 15 years has raised £500 for FibroAction!

We are pleased to post that a young lady called Jade Shepherd has worked hard to raise £500 for FibroAction by organising various fundraising events. Her sister, 30 years was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia which is what inspired her to start fundraising. For further information about her efforts please see this article below;


'Ella Vine, Chief Executive of FibroAction visited the school. She spoke to both Jade and her sister Claire and listened how much fibromyalgia has changed the family’s life. Ella said: ‘It is heartening to see how much school pupils get involved and to see Jade’s determination to raise both funds and awareness of fibromyalgia to help her sister Claire and many others affected by the condition. We are absolutely delighted and want to express gratitude to Jade and to Sharples School for the fantastic support. We know that there is still a lot to be done to improve the diagnosis, care and treatment of people living with fibromyalgia and the donation will go a long way to achieve that’.

Why won't you start a fundraising activity of your choice for FibroAction? It can be fun, and if you would choose chocolate, like Jade, it could be tasty, too! You can start fundraising for us just in a few clicks! uk.virginmoneygiving.com/ch...
