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, companies have enjoyed a great 2018/19 season with Bransby Wilson coming out on top and winning this year’s shield which they will hold for the next year. They can also keep a framed certificate to hang on the office wall for good ! If you are interested in taking part this coming season to get your company a bit better known around York and support your local community, just get in touch in the first instance.
Entry for a company team will be £25.00, and if you wish to enter more than one team, the remainder will be only £15.00 each. All money raised will going directly to Invest in ME Research. There will be a trophy, bragging rights, media coverage, as well as links from our website to your company site and we’ll follow and re-tweet your business messages, so what’s not to like ?
Once teams are up and running, registration fees as mentioned above will be requested to be paid into a Just Giving page that will be collecting for the charity, Invest in ME Research. A link to that page is on the site at:
Please note that you do not need to be a York based company to join up. Everyone is welcome !
If you wish to join the league, please send me an email to let me know a little about your company, with a Logo that we can add to the site as a link, and as a thank you for your support. Once the league is set up, you’ll be informed as to how to connect to it and select and enter your team.
If you have any questions at all, please contact Bill Clayton at
