International Fibromyalgia and M.E. Awareness day may 12th 2015 was spent with a few hundred supporters in Blackpool. We lit up Blacpook tower and got to see our name in lights!

The Fibroduck Foundation event to celebrate #May12th, International Awareness Day for Fibromyalgia and ME, proved that fibromyalgia patients love to party!

300 patients and their families made it to Blackpool, dressed in purple to celebrate the Tower light-up, wearing purple wigs and sporting purple-and-duck-themed face paint by Funkymonkey Facepainting in Blackpool.

Teams of bucket-shakers collected donations in Blackpool town centre, many wearing duck suits to give shoppers a smile.

 Jamie raised over £300 by having her hair dyed bright purple, courtesy of Richard Hair and Beauty in St Annes. (Fundraising total for the day to follow).

Supporters travelled from all over the UK to be at the event, including one family who came from Somerset and a couple who'd flown in from Portugal to be there. Patients who'd only known each other via Fibroduck's online support group met face-to-face and lots of new friends were made.

The trustees were also able to thank fundraisers from around the country, including Manchester-based Mags Karter, who ran a masked ball in March (photo probably available) and Newcastle-based David Bradford, who will be cycling from London to Paris for Fibroduck in July

By 7.55, everyone was assembled on the Comedy Carpet to see the Tower light up in purple at exactly 8pm. The word 'FIBRODUCK' ran across the Tower for the evening.

The Fibroduck Foundation now has a World Record attempt in London in its sights for Fibro Education Week in September, and hopes to persuade the Tyne Bridge in Newcastle to light up for next year's event.
