Owing to the necessary measures and latest Government advice to stay safe, look after yourself and your loved ones, many of our supporters have unfortunately seen their planned challenges, activities and events cancelled or postponed.
We have been amazed to hear the creative ways in which our determined WM community have been rallying to raise vital funds for WMUK – helping us continue to support those affected by WM, at a time when it’s never been more needed.
Raising awareness, providing support or donating can all make the world of difference to charities and communities like ours. From making one-off, or regular donations; hosting virtual events; running virtual marathon distances or creating virtual birthday and celebratory fundraisers online, there are still plenty of ways to get involved, all from the safety of your own home.
If you are in a position to make a donation, however large or small, one-off or regular, we would be very grateful.
Regular donations strengthen our charity, help us continue our vital work providing support and information to the WM community and to plan for the future. Every penny really does make a difference.
