How you can help
Fundraise, work for us, provide support or become a trustee
The Pulmonary Fibrosis Trust was set up so that people and carers living with Pulmonary Fibrosis could get help and support. We rely entirely on donations, so any fundraising is welcome. In 2014 we raised almost £30,000 in this way. The nature of the events that were conducted varied greatly and included sponsored events organised by other people, sponsored events organised by individuals themselves, and a few more organised fundraising events. For more details of the fundraising events please go to our fundraising page where there are details of how you can raise funds for the trust.
Covering the entire UK PF population is quite difficult. We are interested in hearing from any of you who would like to help the trust by being an ambassador for the trust. This role involves knowing of any events going on in your area and attending some of those to give out information about the trust, and to help the event raise money for the trust. If you are interested in performing this function on behalf of the trust we would be very glad to hear from you. In the first instance please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Individual Patient/Carer Support
Fundraising and travelling around the country representing the trust is not possible for many of us. But we all have a telephone and can talk to other people, carers, and family members. Many people, carers, and family members call us and want to talk to somebody about pulmonary fibrosis. This is normally people who have recently been diagnosed but can sometimes include people who have had the illness for some time. Talking to an existing person or carer can really help. If you would like to help with this function or for more information please contact the trustees at email@example.com
If you would like to help the Pulmonary Fibrosis Trust by becoming a trustee we would really like to hear from you. The role of being a trustee can involve as little or as much time as you want to put into it but would normally involve attending 2 meetings a year to discuss the administration of the trust and the various functions of the trust. It would be hoped that individual trustees would take an active role in one or more functions of the trust.
