Stay-In-Fest is a charity show, in aid of Beat:Cancer, Cure DM CIC and MIND.

 

THANK YOU for supporting Cure DM CIC again. We have been part of the INFEST family for 18 years or more - trading as HERESY CLOTHING and later raising support for our Charity. Many of you will know of my son Dregan who has Congenital Myotonic Dystrophy, and his father Dom who passed away 2 years ago from the disease. INFEST was the highlight of his year!

Thank you for your continued support -which enables us to support families like ours, raise awareness and facilitate research into this devastating disease.

Miles Cubs!

Cure DM are delighted to announce our new campaign.

Miles is our much loved Mascot for our families and children living with DM, and in the past we have sent him to families in need of support or having a celebration. He is getting a bit old now, and wants to have a bit of a rest so will reside in the CURE DM shop.

Also…… it seems he has a litter on the way! 

We will be sending cubs out to the children in our community. This campaign is funded by our amazing supporters, we cannot do this without the ongoing fundraising and support we are receiving.

THANK YOU to everyone who is helping make this possible.
