Welcome To The York ME Community

Firstly, let me just say that The York ME Community is not a charity. I will not be asking you to put your hands in your pockets for cash.

There are ME charities, and if in the future you or your business wish to do a charity run or whatever in aid of ME, I will happily help and support that aim.
