This week is national Cystic Fibrosis Week. Newtown C of E Primary School participated in 'Wear Yellow Day' on the 22nd June to raise awareness for people across the UK affected by cystic fibrosis.
Cystic fibrosis is a life-shortening genetic condition affecting more than 10,800 people in the UK. One in 25 people carry the faulty gene that causes the condition, usually without even knowing. The Cystic Fibrosis Trust is the only UK-wide charity fighting for a life unlimited by cystic fibrosis by investing in research to tackle the condition and campaigning for life-changing medicines to one day beat it for good.
