Paul_Howard or anyone else at Lupus UK ... I see that you are down as a non profit race team unfortunately the details on this page ... worldautoimmunearthritisday... seem to be incomplete for you


Hi fabwheelie,

Unfortunately I wasn't available at the time you sent your message so I wasn't able to correct this. I have now notified the organisers so hopefully this won't happen again in future years.


OK no worries. I did wonder if you may all be out of office as WAAD happened over the weekend, but thought it worth mentioning as good to have the direct link to Lupus UK ... Links were available via other links to various things done by Lupus UK such as your booklets etc in the "events programme" on the day. I posted quite a few facebook posts and tweets during the Saturday, and Yvonne Norton who runs WMLG did facebook posts too ... Lupus UK even got a mention on the Saturday on a WAAD facebook post .... so hopefully some more awareness about Lupus UK got out there
