We were thrilled at the news that the fabulous charity that we all support – Invest in ME Research – has been awarded an Awards for All grant by The Big Lottery to support their proposal for a Centre of Excellence for ME. Keep up with news on the charity’s new website dedicated to the Invest in ME Research Centre of Excellence for ME – www.cofeforme.eu


Every £1 makes a big difference as Invest in ME Research is run entirely by volunteers and the 1st of the month One Day – One Pound is the ideal to donate just £1 to the charity’s vitally important and progressive work.
