    Funded on Tuesday, 19th December 2017

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Fibro Active Long Eaton and Ilkeston support groups for people with Fibromyalgia (FM) and ME/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) and their carers. It is a positive and inclusive group that focuses on healthy lifestyle, light exercise, support and sharing information as well as educating members about their condition and help them move forward with their acceptance and management of the illness.
    The group was started in 2016 due to lack of support locally. It is estimated that 1 in 20 of us may have it. There is no known cause or cure. Symptoms include: Wide spread chronic pain, chronic fatigue, IBS and Brain Fog/ cognitive dysfunction.
    The group is run by sufferers for sufferers we are self sustaining and physical fundraising is very difficult for us to achieve due to the debilitating effects of the chronic illness.
    We have over 200 local members in the group and it is growing. We need the funds to cover room hire and ongoing costs to continue to support local people who have found themselves isolated and lonely after their health has deteriorated.
