Team Not Fast But Furious’s story
We are entering a team into The MIGHTY River Weaver Dragon Boat Challenge as part of Northwich River Festival 2019.
50% of the amount we sponsor will go to The Festival's nominated charity: Cheshire Without Abuse - which supports families affected by domestic abuse - as well as other Rotary good causes.
The remaining 50% will go to our own nominated charity: Haemochromatosis UK.
Haemochromatosis UK is a patient organisation that was founded in 1991 by people affected by genetic haemochromatosis and is still run by patients. More formally, they are The Haemochromatosis Society, and Haemochromatosis UK is our working, public facing name. They support people affected by genetic haemochromatosis (GH).
GH is not as rare as is often implied, and we know there are many people in the UK who are affected directly or indirectly, who need information and support, most especially at the time of diagnosis. There is a lot of information and misinformation available, and sorting it all out at a time of personal stress is often quite difficult. They are here to help.
Please support our efforts - and remember to come and cheers us on at Northwich River Festival 2019 - 13th and 14th July 2019
