My Goal

I am making every step count this February

This February, I am taking part in BrainWalk and walking, jogging or running as far as I can to improve my own health and wellbeing and help save lives! 

I am raising money for the Encephalitis Society, a cause close to my heart.
Encephalitis is a neurological condition that can be devastating. Here are five facts you may not know: 


1. Encephalitis is inflammation of the brain.

2. It is caused by an infection or through the immune system attacking the brain.

3. Anyone can be affected by encephalitis – no matter their age, gender or ethnicity.

4. It has a high death rate and survivors are often left with an acquired brain injury and life-changing consequences.

5. It is more common in many countries than motor neurone disease, multiple sclerosis, bacterial meningitis and cerebral palsy.

One person is diagnosed with encephalitis every minute across the world, and life for them and their loved ones will never be the same again.

Every donation I receive will go to the Encephalitis Society, helping accelerate understanding and awareness of encephalitis and ensuring that those affected by this serious neurological condition get the crucial help and support they need. Please help if you can.

One Million Steps!!

Sunday 30th Jan
Hi all! I'm not much of a poster tbh, but I thought I'd share something that's really personal to my family. The Encephalitis Society are having their annual Brain Walk charity month of fundraising in February, and my family and I are taking part with the goal of walking 1 million steps!

You may or may not know about my family's experience with Encephalitis, but its a condition which very seriously affected my young niece Annabelle. She's an absolute champion and lives every single day with a condition that won't ever leave her. She's an inspiration, and raising money to help raise awareness and help fund the good work of The Encephalitis Society is the least I can do!

Our Team is called Annie's Ramblers and we're hoping to raise £500 between us - so every little really would help in this effort.

Thanks very much, and apologies in advance for any posts about sore feet from the Eley's 😂
