During Feeding Tube Awareness Week, we posted awareness posts on our social media accounts-Instagram, Facebook & Twitter. For many with Chronic Intestinal Pseudo Obstruction feeding tubes are one aspect of managing their condition. There are however many other reasons why people may need a feeding tube. We hope through the posting and sharing of our posts we helped to spread knowledge around this issue, and especially how people with CIPO are affected.
PORT has sent it’s newsletter, PORT DIGEST, out to members and is available online.
The first edition of PORT Digest is now finished and has been uploaded to our website. The newsletter contains lots of information, so please do have a read. There are articles about our current research projects and future projects in the pipeline too. Two members stories are also featured, and these share what it is like to live with CIPO. There are also articles about fundraising activities organised by and for PORT. The final page contains all the contact details and information about the charity as well as some useful tips.
Facebook donations have been a very useful way for PORT to raise money. Since PORT signed up to Facebook payments, at the end of November, we have raised £484.36. This is through people using the donate button and creating birthday fundraisers. This is a fantastic amount, in such a short space of time, so please do continue to support our charity in these ways!
