A charity quiz night is being held in Clitheroe to raise awareness and money for a rare medical condition.
The event, at St Michael and St John Catholic Social Club on June 5th, has been organised by FS Accountants after one of its directors, Sarah Sharples, was diagnosed with Lymphangioleiomyomatosis four years ago. Cash raised on the night will be donated towards LAM Action – the UK charity supporting women with the condition.
LAM is a rare lung disease that only occurs in women. It causes excessive growth of smooth muscle cells which destroy lung tissue.
Sarah said: “Being diagnosed with a degenerative condition when you are only 30 is pretty scary, however, the support of LAM Action made dealing with the news much easier.
“Not only have they been able to answer any questions I had, but they are tireless at fund-raising to invest in research to find a cure. We are grateful to those who have already entered a team or donated a raffle prize as it is looking like it will be a great night.”
The quiz night begins at 7-30 pm. If you would like to enter a team, donate a raffle prize or buy raffle tickets, contact Sarah on 01200 423882 or firstname.lastname@example.org
