Hello everyone, I'm Mel and throughout 2017 I'm raising funds and awareness for the Huntington's Disease Association.
This horrible, progressive illness is hereditary and runs in our family; my gran and mum had it, and now my brother.
I was lucky and escaped the defective gene that causes the disease, but my young niece and nephew now face the 50% chance of inheriting it from their dad.
There is currently no cure.
So, I'm raising money towards research and care for people with HD.
Every month this year I'm doing a different challenge - last month I sang a song in public, and this month I'm giving up coffee. It will be tough as I LOVE coffee!
Open Day Fri 21st April
Home Alternative Ltd has previously promoted and supported charities such as McMillan, next month we are holding an open day on Friday 21st April to raise funding for the Huntingdon’s Disease Association (Registered Charity 296453). This will help towards further research into the condition.
*Our updated news is the grand total of £523.38 was raised for the Huntingdon's Disease Association, for which we have received a grateful acknowledgement.
