Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page. I’d love to have your support as I join with dozens of incredible people to raise money for the Huntingdon's Disease Association and research into this inherited debilitating genetic disorder.

Huntingdon's is an absolutely awful illness that affects the body's nervous system. It can cause changes with movement, learning, thinking and emotions. Once symptoms begin, the disease gradually progresses, so living with it means having to adapt to change, taking one day at a time. 

Why have I and Yomdel decided to support the Huntingdon's Disease Association? Well over the past few years Yomdel has grown to be trusted and loved by many people, especially within the UK property sector. As time has passed people have moved from being just clients, associates and acquaintances to becoming friends. And then one of our number was diagnosed with Huntingdon's and people came together to raise money to support research into the condition. It was incredible to see the outpouring of support.

Last year this group walked up Mt Snowdon and over the year raised an amazing £70,000 (unfortunately without me as I was abroad). 

On 4-5 September this year myself and dozens of other friends, colleagues, clients and others intend to canoe 26 miles down the River Wye in Herefordshire over two days. We're fortunate that there are strategic pub stops along the way, but it is sure to be tough. 

Huntingdon’s disease is currently incurable, scientists around the world are researching ways to slow down or prevent it. There are also teams investigating new treatments to help with the symptoms.

So please help me raise as much as possible by clicking on the right hand side and just give what you can afford.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. 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.

Thanks for reading this and any support you can give.
