From a walking challenge at Castle Douglas in Scotland to tombolas in Worthing on the south coast and everywhere in between, this week many of our stores across the country are playing their part to #StopThePain of EB. 🦋

There has been lots going on with teams planning their own challenges or in-store raffles, cake sales, colouring competitions, fashion shows and more to help support Graeme and the team's Channel Swim.


The Poole team have been busy in the kitchen, creating an amazing spread of cakes. 🍰

Worthing have butterflies everywhere at their tombola event, our Deputy Director of Fundraising Jenny, enjoyed popping by on Monday to get involved too!

Castle Douglas are walking 21 miles together, the same distance Graeme will be swimming – good luck team. 💪🏻

Finally, the Farncombe team were delighted to welcome the wonderful June, who lives with EB, to the store to talk about her experiences of the condition and answer questions.

June discussed her experience being diagnosed, the physical and mental impact of living with EB on herself and her family, some of whom also have EB.

They were also joined by Amelia and Jade from the community support team to highlight ways the team can offer support to our members like June.  

A big thank you to June for sharing her story 💙 


And a huge thank you to all our staff, volunteers and customers getting involved this week. You are helping make a real difference to people living with EB.
