Well Done Rhona!

6 Jun, 2017

Gold Member Rhona Bell has successfully completed the 96-mile West Highland Way walking route – and she raised £675 for the Pernicious Anaemia Society.

Rhona says, “I love the outdoors and have wanted to walk the West Highland Way since I was a teenager. When, out of the blue, the opportunity arose I jumped at the chance and raise some money for a charity at the same time”.
Rhona, and her friend, completed the challenging walk on Saturday, June 3rd.
Like most patients with Pernicious Anaemia, Rhona was unable to manage to live a normal life on the three-monthly treatment regimen and now gets her injection every ten weeks.

“Compared to others I got off lightly” says the working mother of one, “my symptoms included mouth ulcers, thinning hair, lethargy, confusion with words, forgetfulness, low mood and anxiety which, on one occasion led to a panic attack”.
Rhona has specifically requested that the money she raised, which exceeded her original target by 35%, be used to fund the new documentary that is currently being written and we are pleased to confirm that her request will be honoured.
Thanks again to Rhona for thinking of us.
Now give yourself a well-earned rest!
