Fundraising is crucial to our Charity's overall objectives and it is only through support of our events that we can continue. We are a Charity whose whole philosophy is to channel funds raised into research of the many forms of arthritis, in fact 90p out of every 1 raised, goes into this vital research. We do not receive any government funding and are in fact the fourth largest medical charity in the UK! In the North East we are currently funding grants in excess of 7m.

Arthritis can affect anyone, even babies, and although it is a disease, which does not kill, it does take away any normal life for the sufferer.
