Vasculitis UK

Faith in local media restored

After my slight rant back in May about our local papers not running my submitted article on the Worcestershire Way for Vasculitis awareness month, I am pleased to report they came good in the end, even if it was a bit late. I got an e-mail from the editor today apologising for the delay. The article, complete with photo is on the on-line version of the Bromsgrove Standard (see link):

It has also been put forward for Friday’s paper. Eagle eyed Martyn aka Wellsie had already spotted it before I picked up the e-mail. Thanks for the advice about persevering; I think it did pay off in the end. All I need to do now is walk the walk. GULP!

Well done Chris; great article and a lovely picture of you both as well. I'm glad you stuck with it... a motto for Saturday.

Now all we need is another photo at the finishing line for the follow up artcles in the National Press (who I am going to tray and contact tomorrow...)

That's a great article Chris good for you. I'm in complete awe that you can manage that walk- couldn't even do that when I was fighting fit!

Thanks Katie

I wasn't sure I could manage it until the day but as turned out we all came up trumps. I'm still feeling exhausted, even after nine hours solid sleep.

The article also resulted in a donation from another vasculitis suffer living locally.
