Fundraiser of the Month
Fundraiser of the month for September 2014 is Ellen Crossley.
Ellen joined Team Allergy to support her three allergic grandsons. Ellen said “My grandsons all have allergies with varying degrees of severity and impact on their lives. What is common with them is that they do really IMPACT on their lives and their family's lives. So far this has been upsetting and sometimes time consuming”
Ellen further explains “I wanted to promote awareness of the problems and danger of allergies and what it is like to live with them on a day to day basis”.
Dressed as a lady bird (!) Ellen took on the challenging Great North Run 13.1 miles on the 7th September 2014, raising over £550 in aid of Allergy UK.
Ellen’s amazing support to Allergy UK doesn't stop there, she is now hoping to get involved with Allergy UK’s Annual Fundraiser “Give it Some Welly”. Ellen hopes that her grandsons’ school and nursery will get involved and wear wellies for the day on 24th October, and make a small donation to Allergy UK.
Our Fundraising Manager Julia says “Ellen should be very proud taking on such a great challenge and raising a significant amount for such a great cause, I look forward to supporting her again.”
