Invest in ME Research Christmas/New Year Fund Appeal

Help Us Fund the Future for Research into Myalgic Encephalomyelitis…
 

 

Invest in ME Research has launched a funding appeal for Christmas and New Year. The Press Release is here. Please feel free to share the link far and wide.

Over this Christmas and New Year period IiMER is hoping to raise funds toward another PhD studentship and to allow more medical students to participate in research as part of building a Centre of Excellence for ME.

The charity has kindly linked to our latest JustGiving page Let’s C Research for this appeal and we will add other donations to keep a running total on the page.

You can also keep posted on the funding appeal here, where a generous £1000 donation by Bombardier Shorts of Belfast in support of Ben Scott’s fundraising for IiMER appears as the first bauble on the Christmas tree.

There is a news page and Advent Calendar.

Our Christmas 2018 page shows some ideas to help raise awareness and funds for Invest in ME Research this festive season. Please contact us if you’d like us to share your event or fundraising for the charity on our blog or social media.

This can be a very tough time of year for people with disabling chronic illness and their loved ones, so let’s make this Christmas count for ME.

Thank you for supporting the Invest in ME Research Funding Appeal!
