Cystic Fibrosis Trust
The Cystic Fibrosis Trust is the UK's only national charity dealing with all aspects of Cystic Fibrosis. It funds research to treat the symptoms of CF and to find an effective treatment. It also aims to ensure appropriate healthcare for those with Cystic Fibrosis and provides information, advice and support to people with CF and their families across the UK. Cystic Fibrosis is one of the most common, life-threatening diseases in the UK. It affects over 9,000 people and 1 in 25 of us carries the faulty gene that causes Cystic Fibrosis. If two carriers start a family, each child has a 1 in 4 chance of having Cystic Fibrosis. Cystic Fibrosis affects the internal organs, especially the lungs and digestive system, by clogging them with thick, sticky mucus making it hard to breathe and to digest food. People with Cystic Fibrosis have to endure a rigorous daily treatment regime including physiotherapy to clear the chest, inhaled and injected drugs to thin the mucus and fight infections and dozens of enzyme pills to help digest food. Each week, five babies are born with CF and sadly, each week three young lives are lost. Only half of those with Cystic Fibrosis are likely to live past their late 30s, but a baby born today can expect to live longer. We seek to continually improve standards of care for people with CF; we commission cutting-edge clinical and scientific research; and provide practical and accurate information to people with CF and their families. None of this would be possible without the support of the CF community and the generosity of the public.

Tilly & Jacob's Tour De Berkshire 2017

Fundraisers:

My page: http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/team/TourDeBerkshire2017

The Tour de Berkshire is an annual event which raises funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust and is now in its 8th official year! It is a family friendly sponsored ride that takes place in the beautiful West Berkshire countryside.

The overall 20 mile route shouldn't be too much of a challenge taking you to the Bell Inn, Aldworth, and returning through the quiet lanes to The Cottage Inn. The ethos of the event is to get together, raise loads of money for CF and have a great time doing it with friends and family.

The ride will start and finish at the Cottage Inn, Upper Bucklebury. Our generous hosts, Gary and Mandy, are once again supporting our aim of making it a "Family Friendly" event with games for the children, a Raffle, BBQ and more at the back of the pub!

 A huge thank you to all who participated last year, you were magnificent. We couldn't do it without you and we very much hope to see you again this year to make it bigger than ever!

See you there!
