My story

[p]As Christmas fast approaches I and the rest of the BlueAssist team are fundraising to enable us to carry on our work through out the next year. For those of you who don't know BlueAssist is a charity that supports people with disabilities, particularly those with hidden and/or communication disabilities. We work to support people to lead independent lives regardless of disability and to our front line users we are free at the point of use and intend to remain so.[/p][p]So what exactly am I planning to do to encourage you to give BlueAssist your cold hard cash? Well between November 1st and January 1st I will:[/p][p]Walk the distance from BlueAssist HQ to Ostend – The aim is to walk the 228km (which is google's estimate for the car route distance) as a sort of pilgrimage back to where BlueAssist began (only without the need to cross the channel). I have given myself a 3 week deadline but aim to do it faster so between the 10th and 31st of December I will be walking 10+km a day.[/p][p]Book Club – anyone who has ever seen my living room will know I own one or two books, I even gave personalised books as wedding favours. So for anyone who donates £15 or more I will send a handpicked book and personalised note to say why I picked it. All I need you to do once you've donated is email me your address (and anything you love/hate in the way of books) to eleanor.dewar@blueassist.org.uk [/p][p]Events – Myself and the other Trustees are planning to arrange pub quizzes, treasure hunts and other events over the next two months so keep an eye on this page and the BlueAssist social media for updates.[/p][p]Anything else I can think of – a bath of jelly beans was suggested as a change from a bath of cold baked beans (in true 90s fundraiser style!) - I will update on here for you all to see...[/p][p]You might be ask why I am doing all of this, the answer is simple BlueAssist changes lives. I get out of bed every day and go to work because every once in awhile I get an email or letter that says thank you. Thank you for helping me feel confident to leave the house, thank you for giving me my independence, thank you for helping me not feel scared, thank you for making me feel safe. If the money I raise can help keep those kind of letters and emails coming in then I can't think of a better way to spend the next two months. So to those of you who can donate thank you, and for those of you would aren't able to please share this far and wide.[/p]
