A bit of a cheerier post among all of my moany ones lately.
You might remember that I got a Thyroid UK collection box to keep in the house, for any change I or my partner have, any change off visitors or found down the sofa.. etc.
Well, it was feeling pretty heavy so I emptied and counted it. There was £9.43 in there, which isn’t bad. 🙂 I paid it in via PayPal to Thyroid UK who were very happy for the donation, and of course stated GiftAid!
They’ve said it’s OK for me to keep the box and rinse and repeat the process.
Thyroid UK do a great job. Can you find space for a collection box at home, work or in your local shop? Collection boxes not only help to raise vital funds, they also create awareness of Thyroid UK’s important work.

I run a Facebook group, called Thyroid Family: Hypothyroidism Advice & Support Group. This group is for underactive thyroid/hypothyroidism patients only, and not medical professionals or anyone else. If you have any questions on living with hypothyroidism, or want some support, help or advice, please join us.
I also run a group for the spouses, partners and other halves of hypothyroid patients, called Hypothyroid Patients Other Halves – Support & Advice Group. This is for the other halves only and not patients.
