We’re proud to share that jellybean has raised over £2,000 for DEBRA UK.
Our intrepid beans Abi Fraser and Liv Martin took part in a thrilling ‘Flight to Fight EB’ wing-walk at Headcorn Airfield (Sun 11th June), which saw them amount a plane and soar at speeds of 120mph through the sky to raise money for a great cause!
DEBRA UK helps people living with the rare, and extremely painful, genetic skin blistering condition, Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB), also known as ‘Butterfly Skin’ with essential patient support. Smashing their fundraising goal, so far our duo have raised an incredible £2,100 in support of this pioneering charity’s £5m ‘A Life Free of Pain’ appeal with donations still open!
We couldn’t be prouder of our incredible bean team. For over a decade, jellybean has stood by DEBRA UK, supporting their vital work in raising awareness and providing life-changing treatment to those enduring the pain of EB. Today, we are especially proud of Abi and Liv, whose bravery has inspired us all here at jellybean HQ.
This is what Liv our Senior Account Executive said about the experience;
“Abi and I want to say a huge thank you to everyone for helping us beat our fundraising target of £2,000. It was an incredible opportunity to raise money for a fantastic cause, and a once in a lifetime experience, we’ll never forget. Thank you to the jellybean team, as well as our friends and family who came to cheer us on from the ground. We appreciated the support so much!”

DEBRA UK is a national charity that is advocating to stop the pain of EB. This year they launched ‘A Life Free of Pain’ appeal that aims to raise £5m by the end of 2023 and will help to fund the life changing treatments to enable those with EB to live a life free of pain. In addition to their valiant fundraising efforts, DEBRA UK
has also set out to raise awareness of this relatively unknown and indiscriminate skin disorder. In the latest YouGov study, only 7% of the UK population were aware of Epidermolysis Bullosa/EB and only 15% aware of DEBRA.
