Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit ourJustGiving page.

ME or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, is an illness that blights the lives of 250,000 people in the UK today.  Their joints and muscles ache unbearably; restful sleep eludes them; and ‘brain fog’ clouds even the smallest judgement.  It changes their lives drastically – disrupting education; making employment impossible; and straining family relations to breaking point.  People may be housebound or confined to bed for many months or years.  There is no known cure.

The Karmann Ghia Owners Club (GB) is a long established classic car club. We seek to be inclusive of all individuals and want to ensure we connect to the public in the most positive manner.

As a result our thoughts have turned to supporting a chosen charity, the ME Association.

This is no accidental choice, as one of our past Chairman's son had this awful illness as a teenager and one of our founding members has had it since 2005.

We have seen how it affects lives and wanted to put our efforts into raising funds to support research into the condition and provide support for the many individuals who suffer from the condition.

Connect with us, donate and support! Every donation, no matter how small or large is as equally valuable.

We have set an initial target for 2019 which we hope we will far exceed. Our Partnership with the ME Association will go forward over the next 3 years.

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.
