Fundraising

Help support the LGDA-UK

As a non-profit organisation, in order to achieve our goals, we have to raise money.  As a small organisation, we don’t qualify for any government funding – all monies raised comes from donations made by our families and supporters.

Funds are vital to enable us to continue supporting patients and their families and move forward with research, here in the UK and around the world.  Fundraising isn’t just about raising the money it also helps to raise awareness to the wider public of our very rare diseases, lymphangiomatosis (GLA), Kaposiform Lymphangiomatosis (KLA), Gorham Stout disease (GSD) and Central Conducting Lymphatic Anomaly (CCLA).  

With your help, we can make a difference.
