For people whose skin doesn’t work – we do.
DEBRA is the national charity that supports individuals and families affected by Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) – a painful genetic skin blistering condition which, in the worst cases, can be fatal.
DEBRA was founded in 1978 by Phyllis Hilton whose daughter Debra had EB – the charity was the world’s first EB patient support group.
We have a vision of a world where no one suffers from the painful genetic skin blistering condition, EB.
DEBRA focuses its work in two areas:
We fund pioneering research to find effective treatments and, ultimately, a cure for EB.
We provide care and support to improve the quality of life for individuals and families living with EB.

The coastal town of Montrose sits between Dundee and Aberdeen and boasts an attractive town centre and a wide sandy beach. Montrose is a great little town to visit, with a pleasant old centre and an interesting museum and art gallery. The town sits on the edge of a virtually landlocked two-mile-square lagoon of mud known as the Basin, which is a nature reserve and a haven for birds who love its mud.
Our Salvation Army shop Montrose is always delighted to accept your donations – all we ask is that they’re good quality and undamaged. Our shop teams are trained to make as much money as possible from your generosity to fund The Salvation Army’s work. We can organise house collections from this shop, just call us to enquire.

To promote and encourage among young men and women a practical interest in aviation and the Royal Air Force (RAF).
To provide training which will be useful in both the services and civilian life.
To foster a spirit of adventure and to develop the qualities of leadership and good citizenship
We are not a recruiting organisation for the RAF but if you’re thinking about a Service career, cadet membership will put you ahead of the competition. Many cadets go on to great success in the RAF (and the other Services). Around 40% of officers and 50% of all aircrew (including pilots, navigators and engineers) in the RAF now are ex-cadets. Research shows that they do better in basic training and stay in the Service longer than their colleagues. Likewise, if you chose a civilian career our research proves you can go on the great things…employers just love the skills and experience that air cadets offer.
Let’s face it – where else would you be given the opportunity to fly solo in a glider or powered aircraft when you’re 17? Whatever you do with your life, at the end of your time as a cadet you’ll be self-motivated, confident and ready for anything.
