Supporting people affected by Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease.

Fundraising

Here you can find everything you need to fundraise for Charcot-Marie-Tooth UK, and much more – from simple coin collections, to some major challenge events.

We have been astounded at the variety of imaginative ways our friends have found to raise funds for Charcot-Marie-Tooth UK; we are grateful to each and every one – without you, we would cease to exist.

Thank you

We all have a dream for the future of Charcot-Marie-Tooth UK – perhaps it’ll be funding a cure or treatment; perhaps in funding better treatment NOW, whilst that elusive cure is found; perhaps it’s funding care advisers to help with day to day living problems – whatever those dreams are, they need funds.

To give you an idea of the costs we incur, year in, year out –

Each information pack that we send costs approximately £5.00 to produce and post

Every day that there is someone in the office, it costs around £180 in rent and salaries (we are all part time, so that is averaged over five days per week).  And that doesn’t include all the overheads, like electricity/telephone/rates etc!

Every mailing of ComMenT costs £1000 just in postage/packaging, and £1700 to design and print (and we do that three times per year)

Every young adult attending the Young People’s Weekend costs approximately £500 each.

Every Conference costs a minimum of £10,000 (and usually a lot more, although some of that is offset by what people pay to attend).

 

And things that we can’t yet pay for –

Your average Clinical Trial in the UK costs £250,000 at the very least….
