Within two years, the illness forced Sarah, who is now 50, to give up the job she’d adored for 23 years, as Marketing Manager at the Edinburgh Playhouse Theatre.[/span][lt]br style="color: #222222; font-family: arial; font-size: small;" /[gt][span=color: #222222; font-family: arial; font-size: small;]She now does part-time voluntary work which manages to maintain a theatrical connection – as the Business Development Manager for the [url=http://www.themgaacademy.com][b]MGA Academy of Performing Arts[/b][/url]. So her skills now benefit hundreds of young performers just starting out on their careers.[/span][lt]br style="color: #222222; font-family: arial; font-size: small;" /[gt][span=color: #222222; font-family: arial; font-size: small;]Witnessing the devastating impact this painfully debilitating illness has on Sarah’s life moved Simon Hanson, who is Head of Music at MGA, together with several students and others who know Sarah, to do something to help. This resulted in the first [b][i]Butterfly and the Wolf[/i][/b] concert in 2013.[/span][lt]br style="color: #222222; font-family: arial; font-size: small;" /[gt][lt]br style="color: #222222; font-family: arial; font-size: small;" /[gt][span=color: #222222; font-family: arial; font-size: small;][b]WHY LUPUS UK?[/b][/span][lt]br style="color: #222222; font-family: arial; font-size: small;" /[gt][span=color: #222222; font-family: arial; font-size: small;]Despite affecting 50,000 people in the UK, research into treatments for lupus is grossly underfunded.

It is also paying for a £24,000 research project at the [b]Western General Hospital in Edinburgh[/b], where lupus patients are undergoing MRI brain scans in a bid to better understand lupus.[/span][lt]br style="color: #222222; font-family: arial; font-size: small;" /[gt][lt]br style="color: #222222; font-family: arial; font-size: small;" /[gt][span=color: #222222; font-family: arial; font-size: small;] [/span][lt]br style="color: #222222; font-family: arial; font-size: small;" /[gt][lt]br style="color: #222222; font-family: arial; font-size: small;" /[gt][span=color: #222222; font-family: arial; font-size: small;][b]GIFT AID[/b][/span][lt]br style="color: #222222; font-family: arial; font-size: small;" /[gt][span=color: #222222; font-family: arial; font-size: small;]UK taxpayers are encouraged to tick the Gift Aid box when donating. It doesn’t cost the donor a penny more, yet it enables [b]LUPUS UK[/b] to reclaim from the government, 25p for every £1 given. And it really makes a big difference — an additional £3.75 for every £15 donated. From last year’s concert, almost £1000 was raised through Gift Aid alone for [b]LUPUS UK[/b].[/span][/p]
