Honorary Friend

During Dystonia Awareness Week 2014 Dystonia UK held a Thunderclap to raise maximum awareness across the social media platforms Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr. The message, and awareness of dystonia, was put across to over 6.8 million people thanks to everyone’s tireless efforts promoting via Facebook and Twitter.

Dystonia UK was greatly aided in this by the actor and comedian Stephen Fry who joined the awareness campaign. We were also delighted that Stephen agreed to become an Honorary Friend of Dystonia UK, and he wrote us this kind message at the time:

“I was delighted to support Dystonia UK’s recent Thunderclap and was very touched and humbled by the warm and generous response from so many members to my involvement. A close family member has this painful and often isolating condition so I have some small understanding of how devastating a diagnosis it can be for the patient, family and friends.

I shall be proud to be considered a friend of the Society and will do my utmost to promote further campaigns and fundraising endeavours via Twitter”.
