I'm fundraising to support millions affected by lung disease during the coronavirus crisis. For a charity that has helped me.

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 have recently started using a manual wheelchair (I’m paralysed) and am aiming to wheel 10km a week for September. 

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.

Please support me if you can and help the amazing work they do, with many people with lung diseases shielding through the last few months and feeling more fearful there support is invaluable.
