News & events Blog Foresters Friendly Society Charity of the Year Thank you to devoted grandparent Jill Sharplin who, along with the members of the Foresters Friendly Society Court 'British Flag' No 3213 have raised a whooping £1,066.55 during her term as Chief Ranger. Jill was determined to make a difference to the lives of those affected by Duchenne, following her grandsons Brandon and Vincent's diagnosis. Jill jumped at the chance to choose Action Duchenne as her charity of the year, raising awareness of the condition and our work. It is because of people like Jill and the family and friends that support her, that we continue to fund ground breaking research into treatments and ultimately a cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy. This would not be possible without you, thank you so much.You can get your group involved in fundraising, contact Sam or Helen for more information.
