Invest in ME, based in Hampshire, is celebrating after receiving a £300 donation from the GALAXY Hot Chocolate Fund.

Invest in ME was set up by parents of children, carers and patients suffering from myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS).

The organisation became a registered charity in England and Wales in 2006 and now raises funds for biomedical research, educational material and organises awareness events.

Kathleen McCall, Chairman, says: “This donation from the GALAXY Hot Chocolate Fund means that we can now provide materials such as posters and t-shirts for our volunteer fundraisers who organise or take part in various fundraising events to raise the profile of and funds for ME research.”

GALAXY Hot Chocolate is looking to help small, local community groups and charities across the UK and Ireland by donating cash awards to support warm hearted people and projects.

Michelle Frost, spokeswoman for GALAXY Hot Chocolate said yesterday: “We know that across the UK and Ireland smaller charities and groups struggle to make ends meet despite the efforts of a huge number of warm hearted volunteers.

“The GALAXY Hot Chocolate Fund aims to give them a helping hand and hopefully inspire more people to get involved with local community groups.”

Open for entries until February 23 2015, the Fund will distribute five £300 awards to deserving recipients every week. Applications to the fund can be made on the GALAXY Hot Chocolate website
