Meet the Team: Lucy Carter

Lucy Carter

I joined OCD-UK in August 2013 in the part-time capacity of a communications and awareness development role. I embarked upon this exciting opportunity at the start of the first Ride4OCD tour and set to work on helping the team raise media awareness during the ride to support the ones doing the real work, those cycling! It was great fun to follow the Ride4OCD team on their epic journey from Lands’ End to John O’Groats.

Robyn meet Robin by Alica Ballard

We know it's still October, but we thought we better remind you that we will once again be selling festive Christmas Cards this year to raise funds for our charity. Our new addition to our catalogue for 2013 is this lovely design by OCD-UK Member, Alicia. She created Robyn meet Robin (pictured) with her aunt in mind, and inspired by our Compulsive Reading article about the OCD/BDD Springfield service, where her Aunt was a patient and is currently battling her OCD.
