Next month from 2nd – 8th November British Sausage week is teaming up with Cystic Fibrosis Trust (CFT) in an effort to help raise funds for one of Britain’s most common life-treating inherited diseases. Cystic Fibrosis affects over 8000 people in Britain and each week five babies are born with Cystic Fibrosis.Katie Burr from

Cystic Fibrosis Trust says that “the partnership with British Sausage Week is a perfect fit, as people with CF often have poor apetites and require diets high in calories and protein to maintain a good body weight which helps fight infection”. What’s more, Celebrity Magicians Paul Daniel’s is looking forward to the weeks events – “I can’t wait to start tasting the nation’s best bangers!  British Sausage Week is a national institution and an event I am proud to be involved in”

The theme takes form of the Magic of the British Banger. Eight separate competitions will be run thorough the country to determine the Best British Banger. Whilst entries have already closed for the competition, you can still get involved by ordering a fundraising pack from events@cftrust.org.uk.  The Cystic Fibrosis Trust are hoping to raise an impressive £12000 as this year celebrates 12 years of British sausages. British Sausage Week is only one of the many national events that help raise awareness for CFT. Other events include Dance for CF, Big Bounce and Great Strides.

Fund raising for the CFT can help  families coping with a child or relative with Cystic Fibrosis, and the CFT’s Support System provides both physical and emotional support.

CFT would like to urge you get involved in fundraising this November and help make a difference to the lives of the those suffering with Cystic Fibrosis.
