I am fundraising for Beat, the UK's eating disorder charity. Beat supports anyone with an eating disorder, their friends and family, as well as professionals working with or worried about an individual in their care. These serious mental illnesses include anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa and binge eating disorder. 725,000 people in the UK have a diagnosed eating disorder. They affect people of all ages and backgrounds, and up to one in four sufferers are male. Eating disorders cost the UK's economy £16.8 billion each year.
As many of you know I have been an avid ambassador for this charity, as my own story goes all the way back to 2006. In my quest to recovery, I made it through and found light at the end of the tunnel, but unfortunately not everybody makes it through. Please help me raise awareness for this charity, that more help and support needs to be provided to help other sufferers out there who are struggling to see the light.
Lots of Love to All,
