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.

During August, OCD-UK's Ashley Fulwood and Professor Salkovskis set off from Land's End, cycling 1100 miles all the way to John o Groats. You can now read all about their experiences and daily adventures and pics on the Ride4OCD website.

Ashley told us, "People's generosity of spirit and wallet continues to amaze and humble us, even now, some two weeks following the completion of Ride4OCD. We want to thank everybody that supported us with words of encouragement to sponsoring us, you all made a real difference to helping us achieve our aims of this tour, we raised over £6600 so far, and managed to do 14 pieces of local media OCD awareness coverage, so thank you so much to you all for your generosity, you helped us achieve our aims of Riding4OCD."

"We wanted to try and share our experiences with you, so below is a review for each day of our ride, along with some route stats and pictures from the day (more pics to follow in the next week or so)."
