LUPUS UK is a cause which is extremely close to Reece Mennie’s heart. In 2015, Reece’s mother tragically passed away from Lupus and it’s for that reason Reece supports LUPUS UK.
Lupus is an illness of the immune system, and it’s incurable. It’s likely genetic and the main sufferers of the illness are females. It can affect any part of a sufferer’s body. It’s that fact that makes it very dangerous.
The frightening thing is that the actual number of Lupus sufferers is probably wildly underestimated. So, this is lupus. It’s a nasty illness. But the fightback is underway, led in Britain by LUPUS UK.
LUPUS UK has 5,000 members and a regional group network around the UK. They arrange medical talks, publish local newsletters, set up local meetings and organise fundraising events. For health professionals, they produce a range of high quality information for patients, carers and medical professionals
Richard House Children's Hospice based in East London provides palliative care to children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions across London.
Opened in 2000, Richard House was London’s first children’s hospice. It was founded by our Life-President Anthea Hare, who was inspired by both her experience as a paediatric nurse at Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel and through helping her parents to look after her severely autistic brother.
Today we support more than 300 families from Newham, Barking, Dagenham, Tower Hamlets, Waltham Forest, Hackney, Redbridge, Haringey, Islington, Ilford, Camden and into South Essex.
