Kay's Sharpington baked beans bath for FMA UK

On 7th August Kay Sharpington held a baked bean bath in aid of Fibromyalgia Action UK at the Farmhouse in Kesgrave, Suffolk, raising a grand total of £750 for the charity.

At the event, Kay's family and patrons of the pub helped to pour 11.5 kilograms of beans over her, donated by Tesco Martlesham and a Girlguiding UK leader. As well as raising money for FMA UK, the event also increased awareness of the condition among the pub's customers. Several knew friends or had family members with fibromyalgia and were glad to see its profile being raised.

Kay said "I'm really grateful to everyone who has donated so far. Although fibromyalgia makes daily life difficult, I’m glad that I can do something to increase awareness of the condition, and raise money for research into it. I'm fundraising so that in future people will have heard of the illness they're being diagnosed with, so it becomes a topical issue, and so that eventually effective treatments and a cure can be found."
