Lymfund: The Charity Arm of MLDUK
MLDUK Lymfund raises money to help people access Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) treatments when they cannot get the treatment on the NHS and when they cannot afford to pay for it privately.
MLD is an integral part of a specialised physical treatment for oedema. Our registered therapists have advanced training and hold full insurance.
Applications for funding cannot be made by members of the public, but must come to Lymfund through one of MLDUK ‘s registered Therapists.
How to donate
We currently have three ways of donating to Lymfund:
You can donate online securely, using the Justgiving website, either making a one-off donation or setting up a regular gift. 100% of your donation goes to Lymfund and if it’s eligible for Gift Aid – ie you are a UK Taxpayer – the fund receives an additional 25% from HMRC.
Lymfund has been registered with “easyfundraising”; this means you can raise money for the charity whenever you shop online.
It's very simple, just visit http://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/find-a-cause/?q=Lymfund to register (this link automatically selects Lymfund as your charity). Whenever you buy something from over 2,000 different internet retailers (including Amazon, Argos, M&S, eBay and many more), the retailer makes a donation to Lymfund. It won't cost you a penny extra to shop through easyfundraising and you can save money with special offers and voucher codes as usual.
Once you are registered you can also sign up for easysearch which raises 1p for every 2 internet searches you make (powered by Yahoo).
Individuals can raise hundreds of pounds over a few years just by being registered and ordering through the web as normal. But you do not need to be ordering from the web all the time, if we all register and each raise a few pounds a year we can make a big difference to people's lives through Lymfund.
You can also donate to Lymfund by texting LYMF, followed by the amount you wish to donate, to 70070. You can donate £5 or £10.
To donate £5, text LYMF05 to 70070
To donate £10, text LYMF10 to 70070
All the money you donate goes to Lymfund, and your network provider does not charge you for the SMS you send to make the donation.
If you have any questions about JustTextGiving, you can find the help page on their website www.justtextgiving.co.uk

Virgin London Marathon 2016
The mantra was:
"She believed she could, so she did"
Not content in raising just under £1000 for Lymfund at the Aberfeldy Tri- last summer, Ginnie Kennedy has raised another £1460 (plus gift aid of 25%) by competing in the Virgin Money London Marathon on 24 April 2016 . A huge "Well Done, Bean" from us all. There is still time to contribute - you can find Ginnie's Just Giving page at https://www.justgiving.com/missrunningbean/.
Please give generously - remember she gave up her time and effort, often training in atrocious conditions on cold dark mornings - to raise money for this worthy cause.
You can of course also donate now using any of the methods which can be found on the left of this page.
