Play for IiMER


Play for Invest in ME Research Launches With Love


Music was the food of love for ME at The Spinning Top in Stockport on Sunday 17th Feb. The Valentines Music Fundraiser launched ‘Play for Invest in ME Research’ created by Karen Morris to raise money for the charity’s Biomedical Research Fund while also raising awareness of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis.

The idea of Play for IiMER is to organise gigs around the country in aid of the charity. Karen hopes to organise more gigs herself if health allows (Karen has ME) and hopes that others in UK will help her to make Play for Invest in ME Research go nationwide by organising and filming similar gigs in aid of the charity.

Karen added the money to the total raised on her JustGiving page –
I Support ME Research
and there’s an option to donate by texting ISMR99 £10 (or £1-£5) to 70070.

The performances were recorded and are uploaded with each artist’s name to the Play 4 IIMER playlist on Karen Morris YouTube channel.

Many thanks to Karen and everyone who donated, watched, performed.

If you (or anyone you know) would like to join in with this event, please contact Karen Morris. You can also contact Invest in ME Research charity for help with awareness and fundraising aids, banners, wristbands, collection boxes etc.
