Good Luck team OCD-UK

This weekend Sorcha McCaffrey will be facing the epic and gruelling 10-12 mile Tough Mudder challenge in the North West of England. She is fundraising for our charity and told us exactly why she is putting herself through the challenge.

"To beat OCD I had to face my fears and running Tough Mudder is a similarly terrifying challenge - this 10-12 mile mud run involves jumping into ice water, scaling walls, crawling through mud tunnels and dashing through live electric wires. (Wait, WHAT AM I DOING?)

Share your OCD story for Ride4OCD

We are looking for Media Volunteers from across the UK to support the charities media coverage during our Ride4OCD fundraiser this August.

Chief executive Ashley Fulwood, charity patron Professor Paul Salkovskis and OCD-UK member Dr Lisa Marnell will cycle 1250 miles from John o'Groats to Lands End, through Scotland, England and Wales, in aid of the charity, raising funds and awareness. Information about the route and the areas they will be cycling through can be found at http://www.ride4ocd.org/route/.

Media Volunteers must have first-hand experience of OCD, as a sufferer or ex-sufferer, and need to feel comfortable talking to journalists either for newspaper features or radio interviews. Sharing your story will help raise awareness about this debilitating illness and educate people about what OCD is really like. It will also help thousands of OCD sufferers by letting them know that they are not alone and that they can get help.

If you are interested in getting involved in this opportunity then please contact our volunteer coordinator Beth Hemus on beth@ocduk.org or by calling her 07748 175 753. (Beth only works Monday-Wednesday so may not be able to respond outside of those working days).

Cheaper cost to call the OCD-UK Information Line

We have today introduced an alternative to our 0845 120 3778 call number with the introduction of a cheaper 0345 alternative (0345 120 3778), helping cut costs of telephone calls for the public. 0345 numbers are charged at the same local rate that it costs to call a 01 landline number, often free from many call allowance packages.

OCD-UK will partly subsidise the introduction of the 0345 number, which is why your donations are more important than ever before.

Those calling our existing 0845 number may already be benefiting from free calls to 0845 numbers on many BT/landline call packages, however our new 0345 numbers will save money for even more callers who can call 0345 numbers from within their allowed call package allowance including from within mobile call package allowances, meaning for many people calling our charity will be completely free of charge to you.
