An Appeal for Charidee

    Hi everyone!

    I am going to China next year, to trek the Great Wall and raise some serious dough for charidee.

    To be precise, I need at least £50k to help refurbish a cystic fibrosis unit at my local hospital.

    This will create 18 individual rooms each with state-of-the-art entertainment and catering facilities to make the CF patients' hospital stay as bearable as possible.

    For those of you who don't know, CF is the most common life-threatening hereditary condition in the UK. At the moment there is no known cure and the average life expectancy is just 31 years.

    When they are in hospital they have to be isolated from other CF sufferers and they are not even allowed to go outside for fear of spreading infections. Hence the need for each room to have its own games consoles, TVs, DVD players, PCs etc.

    I am looking for people to come along on the trip with me. Not only will it be an amazing experience for all those involved but it will also benefit CF sufferers in the West Midlands.

    Everyone on the trip has to raise at least £3k to secure their place, of which at least £1.7k will go towards the unit.

    Let me know if you are interested in coming along, or offering help in any other way.

    This is just feedback as I wouldnt afford that anytime soon for the next 10 years but that's an amazing idea and I think you have a big heart for doing that.

    Good luck and have fun!

    Thanks for your kind words.

    If you wanted to come the team would help you with organising fundraising events - you wouldn't have to find the £3k yourself.

    You would just need to fit a 10 day break into your busy schedule...

    It is a meaningful trip. I'm so regretful that I have no time to take part in.
    Anyway, enjoy your trip!
