Every year at Ribblesdale we pick a local charity to raise funds for over the year.
In 2016 we raised £3,740.70 for Macmillans cancer support.
Well done all who helped raise a fantastic amount.

This year we are raising money for cystic fibrosis.

What Is Cystic Fibrosis?

Cystic fibrosis is a progressive, genetic disease that causes persistent lung infections and limits the ability to breathe over time.
In people with CF, a defective gene causes a thick, buildup of mucus in the lungs, pancreas and other organs. In the lungs, the mucus clogs the airways and traps bacteria leading to infections, extensive lung damage and eventually, respiratory failure. In the pancreas, the mucus prevents the release of digestive enzymes that allow the body to break down food and absorb vital nutrients.
