Fundraising: Skin charities to work together

A group of skin charities are joining forces to raise awareness and money for people with skin disease.

Fourteen charities and patient support groups, in-cluding Changing Faces, the British Skin Foundation, the Psoriasis Association and the Shingles Support Society, are organising the Walk for Skin to show a united front against skin disease. People are being invited to join in the series of sponsored walks to fund skin disease research and help for sufferers.

It is the first time so many skin organisations have joined forces.

Matthew Patey, director of the British Skin Foundation, said: "We are lucky to be in a position where we can work closely with other skin-related charities and enjoy a mutually beneficial relationship."

The foundation invited the groups to take part as an opportunity to raise money for its own needs, while also supporting the organisation's main aim, to increase research, which Patey said is something of a shared goal.
