Oxygen on flights

Many of you will already know that we are supporting a campaign by several other charities to end oxygen charges for people with medical condition who want to fly.

At present British Airways, Virgin, Emirates, Thomson and Cathay Pacific do not charge people for oxygen and Easyjet and Flybe allow people to bring their own oxygen on board. However many other airlines are still charging.

If you have had some experience with this please get in touch by emailing - we would love to hear your story.

Get your running shoes on for the CF Trust

We still have charity places available for this year's New York City Marathon and the Royal Parks Half Marathon.

The New York City Marathon is an amazing experience for any runner, allowing you to take in all the sights and sounds of the Big Apple including the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building and Central Park. It's the world's biggest marathon with around 40,000 runners and always attracts millions of supporters. The event takes place on Sunday 1st November.

Closer to home, the Royal Parks Half Marathon, a relatively new event, offers you the chance to see London's parks at one of the most beautiful times of the year - autumn. The run takes in four Royal Parks and offers spectacular views of Buckingham Palace, the Houses of Parliament, the London Eye, Marble Arch and the Royal Albert Hall. This event is on Sunday 11 October.

Go to for more info but be quick - we only have guaranteed charity places available until 14 August.
