The Fungal InfectionTrust
The Fungal Infection Trust (formerly the Fungal Research Trust) is a small charity based in the UK registered in 1991. It partly funds the Aspergillus Website which provides information and support for patients, doctors and scientists who deal with aspergillus infections. Aspergillus infections are often fatal and are fungal diseases which can affect patients undergoing treatments for cancer, transplants, asthma, cystic fibrosis, CGD and those who may be immune suppressed for whatever reason. The charity aims to promote education about aspergillus infections, to support scientific research into aspergillus, to improve its diagnosis and treatment and to support the training of specialised scientists working in this area (mycology).
Support in Mind Scotland
Support in Mind Scotland works to improve the wellbeing and quality of life of people affected by serious mental illness. This includes those who are family members, carers and supporters.

Hi, thanks for visiting my fundraising page

I decided to take a huge leap and challenge myself, with some friends spurring me on to do a half marathon.  Well after many months of training in a few weeks time I'l be running my first Edinburgh Half Marathon!

More importantly I've decided to do this run and raise funds for two charities.

The first charity personal to my family is the Fungal Infection Trust who work tirelessly to raise monies for research into fungal infection such as the life threatening Aspergillosis - once in the lungs of a compromised person it can be fatal.

As most of my family and close friends know my father was diagnosed with a life threatening condition, Aspergillosis a couple of years ago.  Fortunately with the doctors and consultants expertise, travelling for regular hospital visits between Edinburgh, Borders General and the National Aspergillosis Centre, Wythenshawe Manchester, he was prescribed with the anti fungal drugs he needed to get him back to health.

Research is carried out by the Fungal Infection Trust and I can hopefully be able to raise a significant sum to help support F.I.T continue their research into fungal infections.

My second charity is Support in Mind Scotland, which is one of four charities that's part of Mental Health UK.  Lloyds Banking Group will support this new network Mental Health UK in a two year partnership to create a pioneering Mental Health and Money Advice Service and help raise £2m.  One in four people are affected by poor mental health and of these, around four million also struggle with their financial wellbeing.

My run will hopefully raise funds for this charity who can offer and provide extra mental health support that people need.

Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to these charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this.

Any donations will be hugely appreciated, big or small - a small donation will still help! 

Many thanks for your support :)
