      Allerdale woman completes gruelling winter step challenge for tinnitus charity (yahoo.com)

      I'm guessing you're not here with us on Tinnitus Talk, Kelly, or you would have posted these links to explain about this yourself.

      Anyway, Kelly Rowley, a woman from Cumbria, England, who has suffered with debilitating tinnitus for nearly 10 years now, has just completed a walking challenge to raise money for the BTA.
      As you can see, the challenge is over, and she's raised just over £200, but it appears she has until the end of today to submit what she's collected to the BTA. So just posting this here in case anyone else wants to contribute to her sum total before the deadline is up.

      I realise this is just the BTA, and like the ATA, we don't have much respect for how they spend their money here, but this story kind of touched me, and I really like that this woman wanted to do something, despite her limitations.

      Just found out about this. It's a great story worth donating to, so thanks for posting this @Damocles. I like your message to Kelly on her fundraising page. It would definitely be awesome if she came here to say hello.

      Good stuff.

      Just saw @ZFire and @Markku, you guys also donated.

      @ZFire, you are such a good friend. Thank you mate, for everything.

      @Markku, thank you for the kind words and all the work you've put into building the Tinnitus Talk community; I think it is truly phenomenal what you have done here.

      I have a lot of fun on the forum, and get to spend time with some lovely people who understand me better than members of my own family even. But all of that is just an added bonus in what was my true purpose when I registered here; to start contributing, back to a forum that has aided me in my times of need, and to my community in general.

      As has been said before: if we don't even try to help ourselves, why should we expect other people to try and help us?
