Charity founder Claire picks up two prestigious awards

We would like to congratulate the charity’s founder, Claire Thornber, on the two awards that she has recently won. Claire was nominated for two titles in the Pride of Lancashire Awards hosted by The Flower Bowl at Preston. Due to her dedication and commitment to the Cauda Equina Champions Charity, along with the strength of her personal CES story, she won them both! 🌟

‘Lifetime Achievement Award’ & ‘Pride of Lancashire Award’.

Well done, Claire! What a personal achievement. Claire set the charity up 10 years ago and it is now her full-time job. After Claire’s life-changing CES diagnosis back in 2010, it was clear that very few people knew what CES was and that there was no support out there for CES sufferers post-op. Claire set the charity up, hoping to start a network for CES sufferers and to provide information and support.

Since then, the charity has continued growing and there are now over 4,500 members in the support group! The charity is now included in the NHS national pathway and Claire has even published a book called ‘The Lost Tribe’. The charity organises national workshops and also funds psychological and psycho-sexual counselling and support for CES sufferers.

Congratulations, Claire!
