Whatever you do to fundraise, and however much you raise, you are helping individuals and families affected by prion diseases to get the support they need. We are so very grateful to all the fundraisers who have run, swum, cycled, climbed, done parachute jumps, organised coffee mornings and much more to raise money for the Network, as well as families who have given donations in loving memory loved ones.
