Watch this short film to find out more about Lee’s own experience of GBS. Through his story we hope to provide sufferers and their families with some comfort and insight into what to expect, the symptoms to look out for and how the illness progresses.
You can visit our YouTube Channel to see all our videos featuring our GAIN Ambassador Lee Clark.
How can you help?
Awareness of GBS is very low. This means that symptoms aren’t always recognised straightaway and diagnosis can be slow. This is why we need your help to spread the word.
Here are some practical ideas on how you can help:
Host a tea party
Get baking, put the kettle on and invite your friends and neighbours over for a tea party. It’s a great excuse to get together, while also taking the opportunity to talk about GAIN at the same time. Moxie needs you to get baking scones!
Eat crisps for charity
We’re collecting empty crisp packets. Send us yours and we can get some money back on them, which we’ll use for awareness-building activities.
Take to social media
Use our favourite hashtags: #awarenessmonth #GetBakingScones #moxie #eatcrispsforcharity #teaparty #CharityHour #Charity #guillainbarresyndrome #GetBaking #gettingbetterslowly #gbs
Awareness and fundraising events
There are plenty of events taking place around the country every week in which you can participate and represent GAIN. Take a look at our fundraising page to find out more.
What can we offer you in return?
Get in touch if you’re planning to support us by hosting a tea party and we will provide you with GAIN information, posters, cookie cutters and cake toppers to help you spread the word as well as the jam. All the money you raise will be used by us to help those newly diagnosed.
Take a look at our shop for other GAIN merchandise that you can use to raise awareness of GAIN.
Finally, did you know that GAIN offers a free will writing service to our members, friends and volunteers?
