Immunodeficiency UK trustee Diane completed an Olympic triathlon on August 28th – this consisted of swimming 1.5km, cycling 40km and running 10km – to raise funds for our helpline.
Both Diane and her daughter Rachel are affected by immunodeficiencies so this is a cause close to her heart. The pandemic has been a particularly difficult time for people who are especially vulnerable to Covid, many of whom, like her daughter Rachel, don’t react to the vaccines and some are still shielding.
Immunodeficiency UK has advocated for these patients, keeping them informed and supported in many ways, but especially through its helpline and Diane’s fundraising was to further support this work. Many find it to be a lifeline for advice, guidance and emotional support.
