    Can you broadcast out somehow about your event on FB - to all those 'like' people maybe?

    Fair enough on your priorities - that Blue Ribbon thing looks great. I've got a thread on it:

    If people click they're going to events, one can then send them updates (I think they also get them if they click "maybe"). It's particularly useful to remind people for daily voting contests.

    Good.

    Looks like the competition closed out with ME Research UK in the top ten so that's £250 - well done to all who voted! :balloons:

    MERUK and the MEA of course were two of the charities whose proposal just bagged £1 million from the NIH for a UK ME biobank - that's the kind of stuff they're involved in so well worth supporting.

    Well, actually... we can be! :cool:



    Seriously, thanks largely to the fundraising group, we've built up over the last few years enough of a network to be able to win almost everything we enter, if only people bother to vote. I think there's an element of self-belief in this - I don't know that everyone has really caught onto the scale of support that we can now draw upon that's there to be joined in with.

    Chase and Aviva - the big-prize contests - haven't been announced for this year but if they run, we'll be hoping to do well...
