Why we need your help This has been a year unlike any other. Covid-19 has had an enormous effect on all our lives. Amongst those most severely impacted by the pandemic are people living with arthritis, for example, those who are immunosuppressed or aged over 70. But we want to assure you that we are busy adapting all of our services so that we can continue to reach those who need us, now more than ever. Our National Raffle 2020 will help us do just that. We know it will be different this year but having had to cancel so many of our fundraising activities, this needs to go ahead! It has been a difficult time for fundraising, but it has not stopped Arthritis Ireland supporting people living with arthritis. We are working incredibly hard to meet the needs of people with arthritis at this challenging time. We are still here, offering support to people like Gloria, aged 27. You can read Gloria's story by clicking here. We need your help to enable us to continue supporting the people that need us the most. Our self-management classes and exercise programmes are now online, and we are developing further initiatives to support people where they’re at. Our website, helpline, social media and online support groups have been valuable sources of trusted information. We simply need to continue being there for those who rely so heavily on us. You can now buy raffle tickets here online and please do your best to share this link among family and friends (you will also be added to another raffle with an opportunity to win €250 if people buy tickets using this unique link). You can then forward this link and encourage others to buy tickets. It has been a grave time for fundraising, but it has not stopped us supporting people living with arthritis. Once again, thank you for your support. In these uncertain times, it is appreciated all the more. Best of luck in the draw!
