CYSTIC FIBROSIS HOLIDAY FUND
- Every year we help to fund holidays and short breaks for children and young people (under 25) with Cystic Fibrosis
- As many as 9,000 people in the UK suffer from this debilitating disease. CF dominates their everyday routine and significantly reduces their life-span
- Here at the Cystic Fibrosis Holiday Fund, our aim is to offer children and young adults with CF a respite from the disease. Holidays are imperative for the physical and mental well-being of those we help, and just about the only time during the year a family can spend quality time together, share new experiences and create wonderful, carefree memories.
- With your help more CF-sufferers could enjoy the holiday of a lifetime and do something they have always wanted to do – from taking a round-the-world trip to spending a weekend in London or Paris
Vodafone World of Difference Programme
We would like to introduce Melanie-Dawn Palmer, who will be working part-time with the Charity until the end of July. Melanie is able to do this due to the Vodafone World of Difference Programme.
World of Difference helps individuals share their skills and experience with many different charities across the UK. Melanie is among 500 people who’ve been chosen from thousands of applicants to work for a charity they’re passionate about. In addition to giving Melanie the opportunity to do this, Vodafone also donates £2500 to each of the Charities.
One of the projects that Melanie will be running during her time here will be to make a short film about living with CF. If you are interested in participating please email us, firstname.lastname@example.org.
