29th March 2021 - 4th April 2021 - Lucy's Week Long Sponsored Silence

Lucy Langton is undertaking a week long Sponsored Silence in order to raise awareness and funds for PANS PANDAS UK.

Lucy comments

"I am trying to raise money and awareness for PANS/PANDAS which is a rare disease which affects children's’ minds. Someone I love dearly is affected by it and I find it distressing that many doctors and nurses don’t recognise it or know about it, so I am raising money for more research and awareness."

28th February - 29th March 2021 - Olivia's Cold Shower Challenge

Olivia is an extremely brave 9 year old girl who has lived for the last 3 years with symptoms of PANDAS.  Olivia recently learned about the benefits of cold water showers (brrr) and so decided to try them out, but felt it might be a good way also to raise some money for PANS PANDAS UK

Olivia comments: 

"I decided to set myself a challenge and want to raise some money for PANS PANDAS UK whilst I do it.  I am challenging myself to take 30 cold water showers of 1 minute or more over the next few weeks and would love it if you could help me to try and raise £300 for the charity.

PANS and PANDAS are horrible conditions that really makes children and young adults suffer lots of symptoms and have mental health struggles. The charity really helps make a difference in raising awareness and helping children and families cope."

17 July 2021 - Bristol Channel Swim

Neil is planning to swim the challenging waters of Bristol Channel from Swansea to Ilfracombe in order to raise funds for PANS PANDAS UK.  The swim will be piloted by Swansea Watersports and is planned to take place on 17th June, but this may change depending on conditions.

Neil comments:

"This challenge genuinely scares me - the tides are fierce in the Bristol Channel and the conditions can change so quickly. The charity is very close to my heart - my son Jack has PANDAS. 2 years ago we had not heard of the condition Jack had anxiety, involuntary movements, OCD, he was refusing to eat and was harming himself - he couldn't leave the house. Luckily a brave family who had a child who was suffering like Jack shared their story on This Morning and we saw it. The symptoms they were describing were identical to those that Jack had - after years of suffering for our family it was an amazing moment! We were able to get Jack the help he so badly needed. Jack is now doing amazingly, he is currently symptom free and is thriving at school."

Neil and his wife Lucie also recently told their story on Channel 4's 'Steph's Packed Lunch'
