Phil’s “Couch to Clinic” Fundraiser

Phil's fundraiser

Phil works with us here at Babipur on our despatch team, he has Cystic Fibrosis and he’s just turned 40.  Help Phil from Team Babipur to raise money for his Cystic Fibrosis clinic and you could win a Grimm’s double rainbow stacker & a Grimm’s pastel rainbow!  Here’s a message about his challenge and fund raising efforts.

“I’m not a person who shouts and biggs myself up as a general rule, but on occasion I set myself a challenge for a cause I’m passionate about. This time my goal is to walk (yes walk) from my couch in Porthmadog all the way down south to my Cystic Fibrosis clinic in Cardiff over 7 days. I’ll be walking in aid of the clinics own charity ‘The Better Life Appeal’ who take care of me and all their patients. They and the CF Trust are doing a wonderful job in giving us a longer brighter future and this means they continually need to expand the unit and ward to accommodate us. CF is a hereditary disease which primarily effects the lungs and digestive system and lets face it if you cant breath and take on calories you’re in a bit of trouble. Since my diagnosis at 18 months old the NHS and CF Trust have done wonderful job of caring and advancing drugs and understanding of the condition. En-route to Cardiff I’m sure I’ll go through an multitude of emotions and pains. However supported by my wife Beth, family and friends be they walking with me, keeping me fed and watered or cheering from afar I know it’ll all be worth it. Thanks to my wonderful Babi Pur family they’ve allowed me to train at work (well, picking for our lovely customers does put miles in the legs) and support me all the way despite having known Jolene and Jordan since school. Thank you for helping out with my fund raising efforts, Phil. Further details can be found on our Facebook page Couch to Clinic
