A Keighley student is writing a regular blog to raise awareness of arthritis among young people. Collette McColgan (pictured), is taking a masters degree in print journalism in Sheffield, relates her own experiences growing up with the condition on the website arthritisactually.com.

She also writes a weekly blog for the national website arthursplace.co.uk which offers support for children and teenagers with arthritis. Collette, 23, whose mother Majella is the parental involvement worker at Parkside School in Cullingworth, was diagnosed with arthritis when she was three. She was inspired to start a blog after a young woman with rheumatoid arthritis, Cat Bull, carried the Olympic torch through Keighley.
