On 16th April ex-Gryphon School pupil Catherine Harley ( Cat’ Green), her husband Mike and friends Mike Ward and Raza Rizbi will be attempting to visit 92 football grounds in 92 hours to raise money and awareness of M.E.

Team 92 will put whatever is raised towards the £350K needed to fund a UK trial of the drug Rituximab at the University College of London, which has already undergone a successful clinical research trial in Norway. Find out more at www.ukrituximabtrial.org.uk

M.E. is a debilitating illness which in 25% of severe cases can cause people to be bedridden, sometimes for years. At present, Britain has no specific drug to target this illness.

If you would like to sponsor Catherine and Team 92 visit www.justgiving.com/teams/strobl or text IIME92 (Invest in M.E.).
