Are you local to the Deepdale area of Preston?
Our long standing supporter Helen Borking has successfully been granted permission to hold a bag pack in the local Sainsbury’s!
Being a large store Helen needs some help and is looking to form a team to raise those much needed funds.
The date she has secured is Sunday 22nd December between 11am – 4pm.
Can you spare some time to shake that bucket?
Why not make this your Christmas give and pull out those Santy hats!

A message from Amelia’s dad Symon - Mia is in hospital at the moment and not well at all ...the reason we keep on raising money and won’t stop fighting CF ...
A quick reminder of how vile cystic fibrosis is. I haven’t seen Amelia this ill for a while, she is tired emotional, and can hardly breath. All the staff at hospital are being as amazing as they usually are..... just wanted to share this and remind everyone whoever raises money for cf that it’s going towards making beautiful brave people like my little girl have a better quality of life. ...

Well done & Congratulations to Sam Boswell!
Sam is 17, has Cystic Fibrosis and competed yesterdays Great North Run!
Let’s get his thoughts...
I ran the great north run for the Trust in 2 hours 31 minutes, it was a great achievement for me! I was in hospital not so long ago having ivs for a chest infection but I soon picked up and got myself going. I’m currently on a lot of medication and antibiotics to keep me well but by going to the gym and running twice a week it just shows what you can do when you put your mind to it. Roll on next year!
Sam...... You’re a SUPERSTAR! ... See MoreSee Less
We would like to share this hugely inspirational story with you all and say a HUGE Well done & Congratulations Mark!
Let’s hear from Mark....
I ran/walked on behalf of my wife Jacqui who has Cystic Fibrosis and is a true warrior! We’ve had a tough year since i signed up. I had a tumour removed from my neck and I have bad artheritis in both knees.
I was determined I was getting round, the crowd carried me and my 2 fellow runners carried me. I was in a lot of pain but I did it and i’m signing up for next year!
Mark, you are AMAZING!

The Great North Run is an amazing event and raises so much money for so many vital causes....I saw this guy come in - not that long after the elite runners!....brilliant time and what a lovely thing to do for CF ...GxWe would like to share the story of our first supporter back to our tent after completing this year’s Great North Run!
Let’s CONGRATULATE Ben Pippard!!
Ben is a chest doctor who in his career has encountered many people with Cystic Fibrosis and it was for that reason he choose to support us!
Ben completed the half marathon in 1 hour 26 minutes and we think he’s AWSOME!
THANK YOU! ... See MoreSee Less

I’m sat in the warm Portuguese sunshine with my mind wandering to all the events we’ve organised for Cystic Fibrosis and importantly all the people who have helped and supported us out of pure kindness and genorisity ...
Some people who I didn’t yet publicly thank for Rams Ramble are Paul and Jean Rigby who own the field we used - none of it would have happened without their kindness (and trust!) ...Henry Backhouse who brought bales of straw which were a huge help and local farmer John Hartley - who came to see what we were doing and then decided to bring his cherry picker (or similar) machine to give people a ride in for a donation, other local farmers kindly helped and gave their time, preparing the field and the route....so many friends and members of the R4CF community who also volunteered their time ....we only raise the money because people are willing to help - and do it selflessly.
Stephen Taylor and I have our own reasons for wanting to fight this cruel illness - but Garry Wilkinson does it just because he’s a top bloke! ...we’d struggle without him - he never stops coming up with ways to help increase the total raised and works tirelessly....
Jonathan and Fran from The Red Pump Inn worked so hard, gave us a fantastic donation and also sponsored the children’s activities.
Joanna Horrocks-Potts and Clare Wilkin who gave so much time organising the children’s games and sourcing prizes ... thank you.
Our musicians Solid Rock, Ciaran Wynne from Ireland, Sam Cudworth of local band Milky Bobbins, Joel Taylor and Indigo Rose ....all performed brilliantly and for nothing - just to support CF....and of course The Morris Dancers!
Thanks everyone for everything - it’s making a difference ...and we will keep fighting CF until we beat it! Gx ... See MoreSee Less
Just had another kind donation posted through my door - £30 towards our Rams Ramble for Cystic Fibrosis ....£13,860.60... thank you so much - it means so much x ... See MoreSee Less
The total raised for Rams Ramble now stands at £13,830.60 - amazing! Supporting the incredible work The Cystic Fibrosis Trust do is important to us but we couldn't do it without the backing, enthusiasm and generosity we get from so many others - companies, individuals and other charities.....to that end we have quite a few thank you's to do!
