Lynn's flying high for our campaign

B12 - Be Aware - Be Well

On the 8th January 2024 Lynn McGuire successfully completed a skydive (tandem) over Maspolomas Dunes in Grand Canaria to help raise both funds and awareness for The B12 Society!

Lynn's daughter Sophie, who is B12 deficient, was previously helped and supported by The B12 Society, and Lynn wanted to support us back.

Lynn raised over £400 for our charity, an amazing amount that will help us to get the B12 message out there!

Thank you Lynn and all who support her x

VIKKI'S MAKING A DIFFERENCE!
May 2020
Vikki crossing the finish line

Vikki McIntee ran a total of 100 miles throughout the month of May to raise much needed funds for The B12 Society.

 

Being diagnosed with a B12 deficiency in October 2019, after more than 3 years going back and forth to doctors with various symptoms including severe nausea, unexplained skin rashes, dizziness, fainting and nerve damage, which had begun to impact hugely on her daily life, Vikki decided to raise awareness of the condition by training hard and running the Loch Ness Marathon planned for October 2020. However, as Coronavirus would have it, the marathon was cancelled leaving Vikki wondering what to do instead.

 

So, determined to make a difference, Vikki decided to challenge herself to run 100 miles during the month of May! Using her daily lockdown allowance, she stormed it, completing her first 50 miles within 10 days and completing a full marathon on her last day finishing off her 100 mile challenge on the 22nd of May, with the amazing support  of her football coach Ryan Davidson by her side.

This challenge for Vikki was far from easy, with the ongoing daily impact of her B12 deficiency, she pushed her body harder than we would usually recommend. However with sufficient injections bringing her back up to workable levels, Vikki is "over the moon" with her achievements, as are we!

Having set an initial target of raising £350, Vikki amazed us all with her fundraising efforts, and with the generous donations from her family and friends she actually achieved over £700. This is a great contribution towards the cost of submitting The B12 Society's training programme to the RCGP, with the aim of gaining accreditation for the course.

The programme is close to being completed, and is expected to be ready for submission to the RCGP later this year.
