Ideas for MHF Charity 2012

Well as this year is slowly coming to a close I suppose we should be starting to think about 2012 and which Charity we should support

MHF Has done a wonderful job of supporting charities over the last few years and I would like to say thank you for dipping into the war chests even during such a harsh economy

Now Please post any ideas you have for charities in this thread and I will collate them into a poll

Hi All

I would like to nominate the Cystic Fibrosis Trust, they are running a trial at the moment for Gene Therapy and are very concerned they haven't got enough money to complete the trial.

If the trial is as successful as they think it will be, it would lead to a general cure for a lot of genetic mutation diseases.

Close to my heart as my daughter suffers from Cystic Fibrosis, at 25 she is doing reasonably well with drug therapy but is needing more and more as becoming resistant to antibiotics.

Best Regards
Broom

As motorhomers travelling the highways and byways who is it that we hope we never need.

But if the need should arise who are we most grateful to see?

The Air Ambulance

Oh Dear

All such worthy causes

In the end I'll support whoever is nominated

And they will be worthy of support

I would like to propose Cancer Research UK.

I know so many people, of ALL ages, including myself, struggling to fight off this dreadful disease in ALL its forms:

If we could make a contribution in 2012 that would be brilliant.
