We wanted to recognise the enormous efforts of fundraisers by launching the first Fundraiser of the Year Award in 2019. Ten nominees were shortlisted and staff voted on the fundraisers who they felt went to extraordinary lengths to raise money for APF.
Two nominees stood out and APF is delighted to recognise both as shining examples of fantastic fundraisers in 2019.
Linda, who has PF and is registered blind, hosted a charity night and auction in February 2019, raising over £2,000 and this inspirational lady is doing it all again in 2020.
Rebecca wrote to tell us about her 13-year-old sister Eleanor. They lost Grandad Bernard when Eleanor was just 11 years old. Since then she has saved two years’ worth of birthday and Christmas money from friends and family and donated £100 to APF in her Grandad’s name.
Thanks, so much to these two amazing people and the other hundreds of fundraisers without whom we could not have supported more patients and carers affected by IPF and PF than ever before.
Have a look at how you can get involved in fundraising for APF.
