Give a warm welcome to the Burning Nights charity…


I am delighted to be working in partnership with this amazing charity as it is very close to my heart!


Burning Nights CRPS Support is a UK wide charity that works to improve life for those living with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS).  As a charity, we raise awareness about the condition amongst the public, health and legal professionals by providing CRPS awareness sessions so that patients can be diagnosed quicker to enable treatment to start more rapidly.


We also offer support and detailed information to sufferers, their families and carers, by way of an evidence based website (www.burningnightscrps.org), an information and support helpline (01663 795055), an online community forum, email support (support@burningnightscrps.org) and social media support, an annual national conference and regional support groups.


The charity is self-funding and relies entirely on fundraising, donations and contributions. Burning Nights CRPS support operates a 100% donation policy. All members of the Burning Nights team work on a volunteer basis and are in the main CRPS sufferers themselves and all are unpaid.


Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) formerly Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) is a poorly understood condition which affects many people in the UK and across the globe is a painful and debilitating neuropathic condition that affects approximately 5% of all injuries that occur. According to research CRPS affects 1 in 3,800 people in the UK which is approximately 15,000 newly diagnosed cases every year, which doesn’t account for those who may have been undiagnosed or misdiagnosed. CRPS can cause a person to experience persistent, severe and debilitating pain.


The condition may develop after an injury, surgery, stroke or heart attack, but the pain is out of proportion with the severity of the initial injury or trauma. The cause of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome isn’t clearly understood and CRPS awareness in the UK is low.

Say Hello to our sponsored athlete Ben Houghton…


My name is Ben Houghton and I am a 27-year-old full left leg amputee. I was born with a foot attached to my hip and this got amputated when I was 6 years old. I have never let my disability stop me from doing anything and have gone on to live a normal life. Last year I got married and I also have two beautiful daughters.


I currently play football for Peterborough United Amputees and the Great Britain Amputee Football team. I have made over 25 appearances for my country and so far, have competed in two World Cups. I have recently been selected again by Great Britain for the 22-man Provisional Squad, with the aim of making the final 13 players to fly to Turkey and play in this year’s Amputee European Championships. Although, due to there not being as much money involved with Amputee Football, I must raise the funds to be able to make the trip if I was successful in the final selection.


Last year I was honoured to be awarded the Amputee Footballer of the Year Award, as well as Peterborough United Player of the Year.

More recently I have been working hard to set up an Amputee Football team in Nottingham. I have found there is a large amount of travelling involved with Amputee Football and I want to give any amputees in Nottingham or surrounding area’s the opportunity to play for a club if it is something that they wish to do.
