Lymfund: The Charity Arm of MLDUK
PLEASE CLICK HERE FOR LATEST FUNDRAISER: https://www.justgiving.com/
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. If you are an MLD therapist member you can download the guidance, application and treatment completion forms here:
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.
