Chahna's Fundraising Quiz

Join Chahna for an online quiz on 14/07/2024 - click here for joining instructions

Chahna recently told FMA UK why she organised an online quiz to fundraise for FMA UK.

Cartoon image of people meeting up“In 2014, I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia after experiencing intense pain and fatigue that left me bedridden. Since then, the two have been constant companions, though they vary in intensity. I've also had other chronic pain and health diagnoses in the last ten years since then, and I've learned that I need to live my life differently to be able to manage my conditions and the challenges they bring.

Fibromyalgia Action UK was one of the first places I turned to for information and support. This organisation is vital to people suffering from this illness because it raises awareness through events and campaigns, supports and undertakes research to advance medical knowledge on the condition, assist local support groups and run online forums where individuals can share experiences and support each other. 

We have chosen Safe Harbour's Zoom quiz (click here for joining instructions) to fundraise for Fibromyalgia Action UK. This group, which we started over a year ago, aims to bring people together to have fun and to develop deep and meaningful friendships. Both organisations aim to foster a sense of community and belonging and therefore, by participating in this quiz, we hope to support Fibromyalgia UK’s invaluable work and make a difference in the lives of those affected by fibromyalgia. This cause is very close to my heart and any donations will be greatly appreciated.”
