Wow!! What an incredible awareness month we have had! We have received so much support from the amazing PWS community this May – we’ve have had fundraising events taken place, fundraisers by grown ups and children, people who have taken on brand new challenges, some who have overcome fears, schools and nurseries turning themselves orange, support from football legends, received so many beautiful photos for our May spotlights, had you all taking PeeWee all over the country on his very own adventures, collaborations and so much more! – all of us at FPWR UK thank each and every one of you who have fundraised for us, gone out of your way to raise awareness to PWS and made a different this May!
Catherine, our chair and the new Chief Executive of PWSA UK Jackie have met to discuss a collaboration to support the PWS community collectively rather than separately to be able to make a bigger impact in the fight to treat, cure and allow people with PWS live their best life!
The Prince of Wales pub in Bromham had a Coronation fundraiser for FPWR UK, they raised an amazing £500!
