Story

Like for all charities, Covid-19 is tough on our small but mighty charity.. I am the CEO of MDS UK, and together with our small team of staff  and our wonderful  trustees snd volunteers we have been working hard to keep going.

We all decided to get personally involved in the brilliant 20for20 campaign, because it is absolutely essential  our charity survives the very negative impact of Covid-19 is having on our income and finances.

The patients and families affected by MDS need us to support them more then ever in during these difficult times. We need to keep projects going, as well as future research, since MDS still has no easy or simple cure.  

The hard work and lockdown has taken a toll on all of us working from home. No real exercise, and a fair bit of stress. So i am taking the opportunity to force myself to improve my exercise regime, my work life balance and my abdominal muscles! 

For 20for20,  I will be doing 20 situps daily for 20 days. And top it up with plank position, to get to 20min of exercise in total. Daily. That's 20min more than my current exercise regime...... 

Hoping me and our charity will end up fitter, stronger and in a better place for it. And 

Thanks for supporting me and our charity in this challenge.

MDS UK is the only charity in the UK providing vital support, information, advice and conducting research solely into Myelodysplastic Syndromes (MDS)- a rare blood cancer where the bone marrow fails to produce healthy blood cells. We are a small charity that needs YOUR support!
