Hope Half Hour BLF

Over 12 million people in the UK have a lung condition. There’s a new diagnosis every minute.

I want to make a difference this New Year, so I’m fundraising for the British Lung Foundation – the only UK charity looking after everyone who struggles to breathe.

I’m taking on the Hope Half Hour for the BLF, walking 30 minutes every day this January.

Just £22 could allow someone to receive specialist support from a Respiratory Nurse. I'd be very grateful for any donations you could make!

The more people that know about the British Lung Foundation, the greater their impact, so please help get the word out by sharing my page with your friends and family

In memory of Grandad Tommy

Saturday 1st Jan
Grandad Tommy passed away in October 2021 from pulmonary fibrosis.

I’m taking part in Hope Half Hour for the British Lung Foundation - I’ll be walking 30 minutes every day this January. 

Asthma UK and The British Lung Foundation Partnership give an average of 30 minutes of help to everyone that reaches out to them. Just £22 could allow someone to receive specialist support from a Respiratory Nurse. 
I'd be very grateful for any donations you could make!
