Recent donations

Paul

My mam has terrible arthritis and has just had the first of two knee replacements. I've raised a bit of money to donate to Arthritis Research UK because I've seen how debilitating it can be.

Jainisha

My dad has recently become diagnosed with severe arthritis and thus I would like to make my contribution towards helping to developing medication or cures to assist with arthritis.

Hannah

Grandad was an amazing man who suffered with arthritis for years. Although he used to sometimes be in agony, he never let arthritis get the better of him. I feel that arthritis is often overlooked and the pain of this isn't empathised enough. What a trooper my grandad was! I will miss him every day x

Stuart

 I work in a rheumatology clinic and it is to pay towards some of the many leaflets from you that we use.

Claire

Our daughter is 11 years old and has just been diagnosed as having IJA by the Sheffield Children's Hospital.  My daughter and her school friends have collected £75.00 for Arthritis Research UK – some of them have given up their own pocket money.

Janice

I have supported Arthritis Research UK since the 1960s because osteoarthritis affected several members of my family, myself (4 hip replacements) and my daughter, who will need a hip replacement in a few years' time. I think you use donations wisely and do worthwhile research.

Arthritis stories

Your donation can help millions of people who suffer every day. Here are just some of their stories...

Anne

I have had RA since I was 13 years old, so most of my life have dealt with the pain and loss of function it causes. I have dealt with the effects the new drugs have on lowering the immune response to infection. Many friends and family with OA are dealing with the pain that causes.

I gave a painting to friends who have given £50 to donate to an arthritis charity of my choice. Research has helped develop surgery and medications to allow me to continue painting and Arthritis Research UK is a fitting choice.

Bernadette

I was diagnosed two years ago with arthritis suddenly after a sudden onset over a two-week period of not being able to move my arm to not being able to walk. Without the great work Arthritis Research UK do and the treatments that have been developed I wouldn't be walking and functioning again. I have 7-year-old twins and was scared I would end up wheelchair bound but instead I'm not and held a coffee morning to raise this money and will continue to raise money to help others. Thank you x

Antonia

I was diagnosed with juvenile idiopathic arthritis shortly before my 18th birthday, I was in a lot of pain and unable to walk for 6 months. My condition has improved and with the information and advice provided by arthritis research I feel in control.
