Raise awareness/funds for OUCH

Hi all. The last ten weeks have been difficult, finding out I have this condition and bending my life to fit in with it. If it weren’t for this, and some other groups, I have no idea where I’d be! My father has suffered in more or less silence for years and I also feel now that we can help him more when his next bout comes along.

So many times I’ve needed answers and help, gone to the OUCH website and have had answers and solutions straight away.

At the moment I’m just hoping and trying anything for this to calm down. 

I’m thinking of doing something to fundraiser for OUCH uk. I’l terrified of heights, but thinking of doing a testimonial video of what sufferers have to go through and raising money by climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge in September. Or something similar.

Any advice from people who have raised awareness/funds for this charity would be helpful and I can then start work on it?

Hi again Kirsty

I'm so pleased you've found some comfort and support here and hopefully your dad will now get the help he needs.

Sounds like you're planning on a challenge that's really going to test your nerve! We are very grateful to our fundraisers who help us to put on our all important conferences, keep our website updated and keep our vital helpline going, along with various essential awareness printing costs, etc. If you drop me a line on dorothy@ouchuk.org we can discuss fundraising plans - and thank you!


Dorothy (Trustee)
