Disclosure – Lyme Disease BBC

When I was first approached to speak on Disclosure, I felt very nervous to share my story with so many people. To be so candid, in my own voice and not my characters, felt very exposing and daunting but within one phone call with their team…all my worries were put at ease. I’m really pleased to have been asked to be apart of this fantastic documentary which doesn’t in any way shy away from the issues around Lyme disease and which askes the hard question. A massive thank you to the team for creating this piece – in which the silenced get a voice.

Lyme Awareness month

Last year I organised the photocall in the Scottish parliament but, this year, I wanted to do something a little different. Sooo…I have decided to throw myself out of a plane to raise awareness and fundraise for LDUK! But before I do that, I’ve organised for Ness bridge to be lit in lime green and for a group of us to gather to sign the board to express what Lyme disease means to us and to throw line green confetti. I’m so grateful to everyone who came and, despite the somber subject, what a laugh we had. I thought the confetti would be a fun and symbolic thing to do but it was surprisingly therapeutic to release the confetti into the air.

I’m delighted that off the back of lighting Ness bridge that bridges, building and momuments accross the UK have been lit in line green to mark Lyme awareness.

Ten under The Ben

Well done lads for completing the Ten Uder The Ben! I’m really pleased to have been asked to attend, as part of your fundraising for LDUK, to cheer you on. I had great fun chatting to everyone there…nothing better than a busy stall and lots of people to chat too to distract you from the cold. Big thanks to the RAF lads who recused my gazebo as it attempted to blow away in the wind when I was setting up!
