Fundraiser of the Month is Lisa Costello.
Lisa joined ‘Team Allergy UK’ after speaking to Allergy UK regarding her two year old son, Ryan who suffers from a severe egg allergy. Lisa said: “I’m so grateful I found Allergy UK, it has helped me so much to deal with Ryan’s allergies. I was ready to give up hope for my son until I found the lovely team at Allergy UK. Instead of getting upset, I’ve helped to make a difference to others whilst getting support.”
Lisa’s first fundraising triumph was on the 1st June 2014 where she arranged her very own ‘Big Free From Lunch’ raising over £195 for Allergy UK. Since then Lisa has arranged a ‘Father’s Day Fundraising Raffle’, set up a dedicated Facebook page as well as an auction page on Facebook where all donations go to Allergy UK.
Lisa has also created a moving video to express what it’s like to be a parent of an allergic child. We shared the video on our Facebook page where it received an incredible amount of likes, shares and comments thanking Lisa for showing the reality of allergy and how it impacts sufferers and their families.
Lisa already has plans in the diary for a sponsored walk, free-from cake sale and a Bingo night at her local pub. She has enlisted the help of others and has created her own fundraising group ’Ryan’s A Team’.
Our Fundraising Manager Julia Kitchenham said: “I have been swept away by Lisa’s fundraising plans and commitment to Allergy UK. We are so grateful for all of Lisa’s tremendous efforts”.
