Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Verity needs you!! All that you need to do is donate some pennies..or pounds and I will, on the 18th May with some equally dedicated people, walk 26 miles from Lewes to Beachy Head. The reason for this madness is that I have PCOS and I am a Trustee of Verity, the only UK charity for women with PCOS. The charity receives no formal funding and is run entirely by volunters. Your donation will provide support & information to women with PCOS also raise greater public awareness of PCOS as it affects an incredible 1 in 10 women. Unbelievably most women do not even know they have the PCOS as every women has a different set of symptoms and these can vary from hirsuitism, hair loss, acne, obesity, depression, irregular periods and infertility, in fact all the things that make you feel awful as a woman! Every step I take will support Verity's purpose to inform and empower women with the "truth about PCOS". Verity has made a difference to my life and with your donation, it will make a difference to other women with PCOS.

Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity. So it’s the most efficient way to donate – saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
