From Let’s Do It For ME: New Total £960,000!

https://ldifme.org/2020/01/03/new-total-960000/

Invest in ME Research announced in their Christmas and New Year Funding Appeal that £960,000 has been raised and pledged to support the charity’s Centre of Excellence for Myalgic Encephalomyelitis projects.

The Let’s Do It for ME campaign is run by severely ill patients supporting the charity’s Centre of Excellence programme of biomedical research and medical education projects. Our original crowdfunding goal of £100,000 enabled this work to get underway in 2013 (patient samples for the lab work obtained since 2014) and we would love to reach £1,000,000!

So to start off the new year, we have created a grid with 40 vacant slots with a funding target of £1,000 each and invite you to contact us if you’d like to aim to raise £1,000 whether as an individual or group, private or business. Read more on the page for Our 40 x £1k Fundraisers Challenge.

Many thanks to everyone helping Invest in ME Research to achieve their goals relating to maintaining a programme of high quality biomedical reseach with international collaboration focused on establishing diagnostic tests and medical treatments for this disease.

The charity wrote in December,

To our supporters we owe great thanks – you helped create something that was thought unachievable. A sustainable Centre of Excellence for ME is now harnessing the benefits of a strategy of collaborative international biomedical research in modern facilities with world-class researchers.”

With very best wishes to you for 2020 and the new decade ahead and grateful thanks for supporting Invest in ME Research.

In case you missed it, your input is needed to inform the agenda for an upcoming public engagement meeting at Quadram Institute.
