We need your help, TODAY!

By Kylie Cloke, Chair of OCD-UK

For those of you who are members, and who have read the last edition of Compulsive Reading, you will have been enlightened on some of the work that OCD-UK has participated in over the past year. I am assuming that if you're reading this website that OCD has impacted on your own life in some way, and therefore I hope that our annual review has helped to reassure you that the charity is working in the right direction to make positive change for the OCD community.

My reason for writing this message is to ask for your help – members and non-members alike – to support our charity. As our annual review shows, we have not only successfully operated our charity with a minuscule amount of money , we are operating very frugally). We are extremely proud of what we can achieve with limited funds – however, these limited funds are becoming harder and harder to come by. And the crux of it all is, that without this money, OCD-UK will no longer be able to operate – and we need you to help us to ensure that this worry does not become a reality.

To put this in terms of time, we anticipate that without substantial financial support, OCD-UK will run out of money in early 2012, which demonstrates the importance of your membership donations and fundraising to support our charity.
