I'm fundraising to support millions affected by lung disease during the coronavirus crisis.

My story:

Thank you for visiting my Take Steps page. This September I'm getting active to raise money to help people with lung conditions get the support they need. I'm fundraising for the British Lung Foundation, the only charity that supports all 12 million people with a lung condition in the UK.

The BLF knows just how difficult the current crisis has been for people with a lung condition. Their Helpline alone has been receiving up to 3x more calls than normal and they're working round the clock to make sure people get the support they need, helping to ease the strain on the NHS. They're publishing up to date advice and information every day but they need support...

Every £57 I raise through my Take Steps pays for a nurse to work on the Helpline for 1 hour, meaning that those in need can receive crucial medical advice and support when they need it most.

Support my challenge by donating or joining my Take Steps team today!

know you’ll be thinking ‘who’d have thought it?’  But it is true, I am exercising! 😂 

If it hadn’t been for lockdown I’m not sure I’d have taken the plunge. My daily walks have made a big difference to my lung problem and in a bid to make sure I don’t give up when work resumes in September, I’ve signed up to the British Lung Foundation’s ‘Take Steps’. From 1st September I’ll be counting my steps to help raise money so that the BLF can continue their work. Their helpline has never been as busy as it has been over the last few months. 

I’ll be honest - I’ve realised I’ve always taken my health for granted. It’s a wake up call when things go wrong. So, your support would be really appreciated and give me the encouragement I need to keep going (I don’t find it easy 😬). 


As Sting said ‘Every breath you take, every move you make...’

(I need to think you are ‘watching me’) 🙏
