Would you like to help your local community ? By current research, there are around 800 people in the York area suffering from Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME). This might include the work colleagues you haven’t seen in some time, or your friends and family, maybe one of the lads that hasn’t turned up for five-a-side for a while.
There is information at the top of this site to explain how it affects people and ruins lives. These are your neighbours; would you like to help ?
The York ME Community is here to help support those in the area in need whilst raising awareness. Unfortunately, this is hard to do when you have the illness ! I’m looking for more foot soldiers to spread the word. Can I come into your workplace and chat to your HR Staff maybe ? It could be that ME is having an effect in your workplace.
How would you like to take part in our online Inter Company Fantasy Football League in support of Invest in ME Research ? Nestle of York have already donated a prize to the business team that was top of the league at Christmas and there’s a trophy to be had at the end of the season. Why not enter a team for next season ?
Is your business taking part in any runs coming up such as The London Marathon, The Great North Run, or maybe something similar ? If you haven’t decided on what cause to run for, what about Invest in ME Research ? Any donations can be passed via the Just Giving link at the top of the site, but I’d also be able to advertise your generosity and your business name to thousands across the world via our social media connections.
There are lots of things going on locally to try and raise awareness, but we need your help to help others. Please get in touch. Be a part of your community. The York ME Community.
