Soul Motown Disco
A massive thank you to Molly Mason, her mum Helen, Grandma and Uncle John who, together, raised a fantastic £1,515 for ME North East!
John and friends Steve, Karen, Peter and Steven held a New Year's Eve Soul Motown Disco at Percy Park Rugby Club, North Shields that was a huge success.
Well done to one and all!
Harmony Youth Choir Cramlington
"My name is Ellen Byerley and I receive your regular newsletter after having support from your charity since I was diagnosed back in 2008. I sing in a local choir and we have recently had our annual concert in which we have raised £300 which we would like to donate to your charity. We decided upon this charity as in the last year another teenager in our choir has been diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome after having glandular fever. We also chose this charity in our annual concert as we wanted to make more people aware of Chronic Fatigue and its effects."
Donation in Memory of Bryan Stubbs
9th March 1944 - 19th October 2016
We say a fond farewell to our founding Chairman Bryan Stubbs.
We are very grateful for the generosity of family and friends who contributed, and raised £360.
Bryan was born and raised in North Yorkshire, farming family stock, healthy and robust. He was a long distance haulage driver for most of his working life but struck down by ME he had to retire too ill to work in the early 1990's.
He joined the ME Association and became a Trustee of this national charity whilst at the same time set up a regional group in the North East. In 2000 he led our charity to independence and remained chairman for many years as we developed and grew. He remained a loyal trustee and participated in meetings and events up until his diagnosis of non-Hodgkin lymphoma last year.
Bryan leaves a wife Jennifer, 2 children and 3 grandchildren.
A gentle giant and a gentleman.
He is sadly missed.
