We fund biomedical research into ME to create a strategy for cure/treatment


With an estimated 250K people of all ages in the UK with ME (25% of whom are severe and either house or bedbound) with no cure, diagnostic test or treatment available - it's time to change this. We're joining together in our 'sleepy quest' to do just that, by raising money for Invest in ME charity's vital biomedical research.  Let's stop the suffering and find a cure for ME. We can all make adifference to ME!

Our TextGiving code is BSME66 followed by the amount you want to donate to 70070 (for example, BSME66 £5 to 70070).

This annual event for Invest in ME charity was founded in 2012 by Julia Cottam (pictured) for May ME Awareness Week and has raised over £20k and lots of awareness.  

Julia herself has ME so this has taken a toll on her health and she was too ill to run the event in 2015.  We hope to do Julia proud and show her that her tremendous enthusiasm and efforts to get people involved have paid off and raise lots of awareness and funds on her behalf .  To find out how to get involved visit -

May Awareness Week 2016 runs from 9th to 15th May.
