Fundraising and Events
Keep checking back on this page for our latest fundraising and events news. If you are a charity, and would like us to take part in some fundraising for you - please contact Louise in the office to discuss.
As you may know, we have taken part in the Birkett Long £50 Challenge in the last two years. This year we decided to set some personal challenges - as a team we will be walking/ running a total of 635 miles in July!
Mr O, Mark, Jack and Simon will be walking 150 miles each, Louise (who is NOT a runner) will be running 25 miles, and our youngest team member Paddy, who is 12, will be walking 10 miles.
WE DID IT!! We smashed it and walked/ ran 737 miles between us!!! Hooray!! It was a difficult challenge at times, but we pushed through, even counting steps on holiday - extra beach walks!! Well done to our whole team! We will be continuing to fundraise for St Helena throughout the Summer - thank you so very much for all the support and donations so far.
We would really appreciate any donations which will go directly to St Helena Hospice - such a worthy cause. Our donations page can be found here, along wth updates of our progress - don't forget to keep checking our Facebook page for updates too! www.justgiving.com/mroremovalswalk
