Ataxia UK

Ataxia is a type of neurological condition that affects balance, speech, and co-ordination. Ataxia is progressive, meaning it gets worse with time, until people become entirely dependent on others for all their needs. Over 10,000 people in the UK have ataxia and there is currently no cure. Ataxia UK is the national charity for people affected by ataxia. We provide unique services and support, including a dedicated helpline and advocacy service; events and conferences where people can meet and share information; a quarterly magazine; a website with lots of information and a discussion forum; publications, films, and reports. As well as our specialist services, in the last five years we have spent over £3 million on research into possible treatments and cures for ataxia. Our vision is a world without ataxia and, with the help of our brilliant supporters, we are working towards this every day.

Story

Please give what you can afford - Ataxia UK are a small charity and really appreciate any donation.

I  have Cerebellar ataxia (SCA 1).

In May,I  travelled solo to campsites around Europe in my convertible MG TF115 roadster,provided under the Motability contract hire scheme .

This was to show that disability need not prevent people from being independent and adventurous.  

This trip has been partly funded by Ataxia UK.

On Saturday 15th September I appeared on the Radio 4 programme,"Excess Baggage." You can listen to the interview with Sandi Toksvig at www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/excessbaggage

Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to sponsor me: Ataxia UK will receive your money faster and, if you are a UK taxpayer, an extra 28% in tax will be added to your gift at no cost to you.

So please sponsor me now!

Many thanks for your support.
