We are delighted to announce that our nominated charity for the forthcoming year will be The Cystic Fibrosis Trust, the only UK-wide charity making a daily difference to the lives of people with cystic fibrosis, and those who care for them. Cystic fibrosis is a life-shortening inherited disease, affecting over 10,000 people in the UK.

You can’t catch or develop cystic fibrosis, it’s something you’re born with and most cases in the UK are now diagnosed soon after birth. This is a charity particularly close to the hearts of a number of our staff.

Take a look at the charities website to find out what causes cystic fibrosis, what it’s like living with the condition and how care is delivered in the UK.

You might also find their Frequently Asked Questions interesting.

Keep your eye on our News and Facebook pages for details of our forthcoming fundraising events.
