Spotlight project

We need help from everyone to achieve everything planned for this project – training events, podcasts, toolkit of resources etc.

5 riders are cycling 100 miles in Ride London on Sunday 29th July. Jon, who has had Lyme disease is riding with his wife Vicky – motivated by their personal experience. Layton, Matt and David have seen this as a badly needed project and are raising funds amongst their friends – spreading awareness of Lyme disease as they go. You can sponsor these individuals, who are working so hard for all of us, on their individual fundraising pages.

How about forwarding a link to your friends? If you are reading this page you probably know how difficult it can be to get a diagnosis of Lyme disease and how difficult it can be for many to get effective treatment.

If you want to make a general donation, then use this general “Support” link – every little ¬£5 really does mount up!
