    Story

    Changeworks is raising money for Lyme Disease UK to support our friend and colleague Ashley Taylor, who has spent most of the last 12 months battling the disease.

    Ashley’s health has deteriorated since March 2020 due to chronic lyme disease, exacerbated by contracting COVID-19 and difficulty in diagnosing the condition.

    Ashley and her partner Mike have sought help from charities like Lyme Disease UK (LD UK), which has been instrumental in providing a support network to them. LD UK also provided invaluable information on a treatment plan for Ashley.

    Charities like LD UK have given Ashley light at the end of a very dark tunnel and some hope for the future.

    That’s why Changeworks is raising money for Lyme Disease UK - https://lymediseaseuk.com - to help fund their continued support to Ashley, and provide hope to other sufferers like her.

    Let’s smash past this target for Ashley and raise some serious money for a deserving cause.

    Thanks!

    Lyme Disease UK is a registered charity (1182212) which exists to support people who are living with the devastating effects of Lyme disease. lymediseaseuk.com

      Our fundraiser has come to an end and we are so happy to share that we raised an amazing £5,804 for Lyme Disease UK in support of our friend and colleague Ashley. We collectively covered 2,470 miles, which is over six times the distance from Ashley’s desk in Edinburgh to Wigan Pier in her hometown and back. A big thank you to everyone who took part in the walk and to everyone who donated, sponsored, or simply shared information about it with friends and family! :)
