24-hour sponsored silence

Eleven-year-old Sophie O’Leary, from Dewsbury in West Yorkshire, will be keeping quiet for a whole 24 hours to raise money for the ME Association. She came up with the idea after her best friend, Ellise, was diagnosed with M.E. 18 months ago. She writes: “As her best friend, I worry on the days she’s not able to come to school, Ellise only can manage to come to school for 2 mornings a week. But some of the other kids don’t see her as being poorly, because she doesn’t always look it, and can be mean about her when she isn’t there. I’ve noticed that a lot of people just don’t understand. So I decided that I want to make a change, I wanted people to see that it is a horrible illness that really does affect the lives of people who suffer with M.E and the people in their lives that care.” If you would like to support Sophie, please visit her fundraising page at www.justgiving.com/Sophie-O-Leary/
