Give Up to Give Back Update

Over £800 raised in January!


Alcohol, take aways, ice cream and chocolate were just some of the things our wonderful supporters gave up in January to raise more than £800 to help us support people living with leukodystrophy!

A few have decided to continue their challenge for longer than a month. Huge thanks to Ann who has given up ice cream for 6 months, to Donna who has given up chocolate for 6 weeks and to our very own Fundraising Manager, Marlene, who is going to give up something each month for a year.

After a successful ‘Dry January’ which seen her celebrate a big birthday without a drop of alcohol,  Marlene has decided to continue to go alcohol free in February too. She’ll keep some of the money she saves for herself and donate the rest to us; win win!
