How did Stripy Lightbulb CIC come about?
Managing Director Sally Callow has been a global M.E./C.F.S. advocate since 2014 with her wacky brainchild ME Foggy Dog. She finds that keeping things fun and lighthearted helps people to engage with the serious subject.
Foggy is a globetrotting adventurer! (He’s also a soft toy)
Foggy has travelled 455,054 miles and raised over £10k for M.E./C.F.S. research funding.

Since 2014, Sally has had thousands of conversations with M.E./C.F.S. patients around the globe. This helped her to identify a need for education in 3 key industries: Healthcare, Employers, and Education. M.E./C.F.S. patients are being harmed, having to leave employment, and failing in school because of a lack of adequate support.
An abysmal amount of Government funding is given to M.E./C.F.S. research in the UK but also worldwide. Our disabling condition receives less funding than that given to researching male pattern baldness.
These two factors gave Sally a lightbulb moment! Use education to tackle the stigma and issues resulting from a lack of adequate support and raise research funding at the same time. That could work!
Now, instead of asking for lots of donations to fund research, Stripy Lightbulb CIC taking a fresh approach and is working for it. By buying our e-training you are helping the M.E./C.F.S. community by helping to reduce the stigma and funding desperately needed research.
