The York ME Community runs an Inter-Company Fantasy Football League sponsored by TGA Mobility. This is to help raise awareness of the illness that affects around 250,000 people in the UK, and 800 in the York area alone. Of those around York, 200 are likely to be severe, meaning house or bed bound.
On the Fantasy League front, our third season is going well with Earth, Wind & Maguire, the team from NG Plumbing & Heating currently topping the league, with Bransby Wilson close behind.
Although this league has been set up to increase ME Awareness in the business community, an extra benefit has been that the registration fees have gone directly to Invest in ME Research. The total to date being £725.00.
As a bonus, one of our supporters, Nestle of York, has once again kindly donated a box of goodies going to whichever team is top of the league on Christmas Day ! Thanks as always to Nestle for their continued support.
If you know of a business that would like to take part with a chance to win a shield, certificate and bragging rights, just get in touch through the contacts tab above.
Please note that you do not need to be a York based company to join up. Everyone is welcome !
