raising awareness

Hi all,sorry i,ve not been on here for a while,for those of you that don,t know i,m not a lupus sufferer but my mother was but after a long illness last year we sadly lost her,i,m fundraising for lupus uk i,ve done two sponsored walks last year i organised one from blackpool to preston,twelvw of us took part and we managed to raise just over two thousand pounds for lupus uk,just recently i took part in a sponsored walk my brother organised and i managed to do 22 miles,forty of us walked this time the money is being splt between two charities lupus uk and st catherines hospice,and at moment before i finalise all the details for my next event in october i am raising awareness by contacting as many magazines as i can to ask them if they,ll be prepared to run a feature about lupus and the affects it has on the sufferer and family x

  • So sorry to hear of your loss and thanks for the great things you are doing,more grease to your elbows. It must have been really hard seeing your mum go through life in pain. If you would need people for interview when your contacts with magazines come through I'm up for it.I was also thinking in this line, for us to go wide just like cancer research UK.Great job so far LUPUS UK
