Since its inception in 2003, LAM Action has raised over £700,000 in fundraising and donations. We are entirely self-funded. The vast majority of the funds we raise go to support research, with the remainder going toward supporting those with LAM.

If you are interested in organising a fundraising event in your community, please notify LAM Action through Jill Pateman. Jill is available on email or in the LAM Action office on 07710 527636. We can provide you with valuable insight and planning tools to assist you.

Each year, women with LAM and their families and friends conduct a wide variety of events to raise funds on our behalf. We’ve listed below just some of the ideas that people have successfully pursued.

How to set up your own fund-raising webpage

LAM Action has accounts with JustGiving and Virgin Money Giving, and it is simple to set up your own fund- raising webpage. If you access the JustGiving website through the LAM Action link, it immediately populates the form with the LAM Action charity details.

  • Go to
  • This takes you to the general LAM Action page on JustGiving, and gives you three options – the large “Donate” button at the top right hand side, or underneath that there is “Find a friend” on the left or “Make a page” on the right hand side.
  • Click on the “make a page” button and follow the instructions

Virgin Money Giving also have simple click through instructions to set up your page. Go to and click on ‘Start Fundraising’ and you’ll be up and running in no time.
