Fundraising for research Since the launch of our Tinnitus Research Appeal, some of our lovely fundraisers have taken the time to organise and take part in a variety of fundraising events specifically for research into tinnitus. Here are some of their stories. Adam Lloyd "Raising money for tinnitus research is important to me as I work with people who suffer with it and would love to see developments to help them." Adam Lloyd, a Chief Audiologist at Countess of Chester Hospital, Chester raised money specifically for tinnitus research during Tinnitus Week this year by saying goodbye to his long locks on Saturday 8 February. As well as Adam supporting tinnitus research, he has since donated his hair to the Little Princess Trust; a charity that provides real hair wigs to children and young people across the UK who have sadly lost their own hair through cancer treatment or other conditions. Adam has so far raised over £500. You can support his fundraising challenge by donating here: justgiving.com/fundraising/adam-lloyd11 Well done and thank you Adam, from everyone at the BTA! Adam Knight "Fortunately I have not suffered with tinnitus during my life, however close friends/family friends have done. This has [also] been a big trigger in my reason to run a half marathon in support of the BTA." Adam ran his first half marathon on Sunday 16 February to raise money to help fund research into tinnitus and it's causes. He is currently living in Barcelona and said "the half marathon was the perfect opportunity to help raise money for a cause I care about. I have set myself an ambitious target of 1 hr 30 mins, let's see what happens!" He completed the half marathon in an incredible 1 hr 40 mins and has now raised over £200. If you can support his fundraising challenge, please donate to his JustGiving page here: justgiving.com/fundraising/adam-knight-bcnhalf Well done Adam, from everyone at the BTA! Nicola Szabo and her team! "I’m doing this challenge as I want to raise awareness of this illness and support the research into curing tinnitus." Nicola has organised for a group of her friends and family to climb Snowdon, in Wales, on Saturday 13 June this year in memory of her cousin Craig Gill. "This is a charity close to mine and my family's hearts. My cousin Craig Gill suffered with chronic tinnitus for so many years without peace. Unfortunately to the degree he ended his life three years ago. The devastation this caused to the whole family is unbearable and we miss Craig every day." The group have set themselves a fundraising goal of £2000. You can support their challenge event by donating here: justgiving.com/fundraising/climbingforcraig Thank you Nicola for organising this challenge in memory of Craig and in support of tinnitus research.
