Vote for Annabelle

26 June 2015

Annabelle’s Challenge needs your vote!

Six-year-old Bury FC supporter Annabelle Griffin is the face of Annabelle’s Challenge, a local charity set up to raise awareness of Vascular Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, a life threatening genetic condition.



Annabelle’s Challenge has been shortlisted by The Rock who are looking for a local charity to partner with and work alongside to organise fundraising events and initiatives over the next year and every vote could make a huge difference.


Jared Griffin, Annabelle’s father and founder of the charity said “We are a young charity trying to establish in our local town and winning The Rock Charity of Choice would help us to achieve this, being an official sponsor of the club we reach out to all Bury FC supporters to vote for Annabelle’s Challenge”.


The charity raises funds to help support families affected by vascular EDS and to research the condition with an estimated 700 sufferers in the UK. Jared added:  “Annabelle’s Challenge is proud to be working closely with the club and your vote is greatly appreciated, winning will ensure our charity can raise additional awareness of vascular EDS within our local community”.


Daniel Bowerbank, Commercial Account Manager added, “Following a meeting with Sarah and Jared of Annabelle’s challenge, along with attending some of their events to raise awareness of Vascular EDS, we are pleased to be working with a local charity such as Annabelle’s Challenge for the upcoming 2015/16 season.  They have been shortlisted by The Rock who are also looking for a local charity partner to work alongside over the next 12 months, and your vote could make a huge difference to assisting them in raising awareness.”


Voting ends at midnight this Sunday 28th June with the winner announced on Monday 29th June. You can register your vote for Annabelle’s Challenge at
