Raising funds for the cystic fibrosis trust

More than 9,000 people in the UK suffer from Cystic Fibrosis. It causes their internal organs, particularly their lungs and digestive system, to clog up with thick, sticky mucus. This results in infections and inflammation of the lungs and makes it hard to breathe and to digest food. It is one of the UK’s most common, life-threatening, inherited diseases.

The CF Trust helps people with Cystic Fibrosis and their families, improving the care available to them and giving them a chance of a better life. The Trust is one of our nominated charities and we help to raise money to support them in their work.

Where does the money go? The Cystic Fibrosis Trust’s work includes funding research into new treatments for the disease, developing new medications and increasing the availability of lung transplants. They also offer practical assistance to families.

The work of the CF Trust makes a real difference. When the Trust was founded in 1964 children with the disease were unlikely to live much past five years old. Today, half of those living with Cystic Fibrosis live past 41 years.

We need your help. There is no Government funding available so the Trust’s only income is donations from the public. But in a difficult economic climate, donations have been seriously affected.

So we’re asking our friends and colleagues to help us help the Trust to continue its work.

If you feel able to make a contribution, it would help the charity enormously.
