My story

[p]Feb 2021 - So I'm going to China this year! But really, apart from a few car boot sales and online sales, it's been really difficult to raise any funds the last few months. [/p][p]However, Spring is round the corner, Covid vaccinations are being rolled out, and I'm hopeful I can raise it all by September 🤞 [/p][p]Please make way for unashamed plugging and begging for donations until then, thanks in advance for all your support! [/p][p]July 2020 - Well what a crazy six months it's been! After racing towards October for the trek, the brakes were slammed on due to Covid19, an event no-one could've predicted. Thankfully the trek has not been cancelled, but postponed to September 2021, so more time to fundraise and train! [/p][p]Talking of fundraising, it's been a tough ask the last few months, so aside from selling a few things via Ziffit, there's not been a lot of activity... Until today! With the kids and my parents in tow, we loaded up and headed out to the local car boot sale to raise a few pennies. It was nice being back out again, fingers crossed it's the first of many more fundraisers this year! [/p][p]Jan 2020 - Happy New Year![/p][p]Ok so maybe I’m a bit late saying Happy New Year, but there it is. And that means, I can officially say I’m going to China [i]this year! [/i]Fitness regime has got under way, and by that I mean I’ve starting jogging once a week with the local running club... not much but it’s a start! [/p][p]And I’ve got a few fundraising ideas that I’m starting to plan into the calendar, so hopefully you’ll see more of that and be able to support me along the way. Thanks again for all your help folks, I really do appreciate it 😌 Happy Chinese New Year for 25th January! 🇨🇳🐲🎇[/p][p]Nov 2019 - That's right folks, I'm planning on trekking the Great Wall of China! Along with 57 other Boots colleagues, we've been given a fantastic opportunity to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support and EORTC (European Organisation for the Research and Treatment of Cancer) by trekking the wall for 9 days in October 2020. [/p][p]To complete this amazing challenge and to raise a fantastic amount for these two charities, we've been set a target of £3950. [/p][p]Thank you for supporting my Great Wall of China Challenge 2020. I am proud to be raising money for both Macmillan Cancer Support and EORTC, as they work together with WBA and Boots towards achieving their ambition to support people living with cancer by providing practical, emotional and financial support and funding vital clinical research that will help increase survival and quality of life for all cancer patients. [/p][p]“We hope to raise an amazing £230,000 from this challenge and all money will be split equally between Macmillan and EORTC. Each hiker will be making a comtribution of £1680 towards the costs of the challenge and the charities will cover the rest, which will be no more than 30% of the funds that are raised. Everyone taking part has a fundraising target of £3950 and a minimum of £2726 will be received by the charities.”[/p][p]I'd be so so grateful to anyone who can kindly donate towards the cause, and I'll be doing other fundraising events throughout the year to try and raise the cash (not to mention working on my fitness!) [/p][p]Stay tuned for (fitness and) fundraising updates! [/p]
