It’s me again! This up and down weather is keeping us all on our toes – I’m keeping everything crossed that it stays fine for the end of the month! I know the weather plays havoc with keeping bugs under control for some of you – we’re in the middle of a couple of weeks of  IV antibiotics for Beth; at least we’re getting them out of the way before the week starts!

CF Week is rapidly approaching. We’ve started to advertise more of our Great Strides Walks now – why not take a look and sign up? I’ll be at the Ashridge Forest walk in Hertfordshire and it would be lovely to see some of you there. For those of you that can’t make a 10K walk why not help out by advertising events in your local area? Just drop us a line at and we can send you out relevant posters or put you in touch with other fundraisers in your local area. Everyone doing a little is what makes CF Week such a success!

You’ll see on our website the story of James Wojda; he loves his sport and is aiming to cycle from Land’s End to John O’Groats later on this year, quite an inspiration for people with or without Cystic Fibrosis. If you’d like to share your story in your area drop us a line at and we’ll see what we can do to help.

I mentioned that we have a Bromley Big Cake Bake happening on 2 May, well Steve and Nigel our facilities team are fundraising this year. They are selling parking spaces! Usually our staff can park for free at work, but not in CF Week – they won’t get through the front door without making a donation, why not try this at your office…

Or if you’d really like to raise some awareness we’re also spending an afternoon experiencing the reality of cross-infection. No one in our office can speak to each other face to face. Everyone has to use the telephone, text, Facebook or Twitter – if they need a meeting, they’ll have to hold it outdoors!

Catch up again soon, don’t forget to let me know what you’re up to!

Love Nikki x
