About my fundraising

Watching football is the one big distraction that helps 28-year-old Oliver get through each day. He attends matches for his local football team, he's a dedicated Manchester United supporter and he's travelled to Spain to watch Barcelona F.C. play.

'It would be so wonderful if people knew about Oliver's skin condition,' says his mum, Sarah. 'He just wants people to recognise what he's dealing with.'
