Team story

[p][span=color: #444444; font-family: Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 12.8px;]The raiders of the lost ARC is a team of 11 (10 walkers) attempting to walk up the UK's three highest mountains in 24hrs. The team consists of Sarah Ashcroft, Laura Collacott, Anna James, David Buck, Alison Fowler, Simon Roberts, Lyndon Allen, Nikolas Blundell, Clare Hill, Steve Kerr and Nick Morton. We would like to raise some cash and awareness for a worthy cause close to our heart. The reason for choosing ARC as our charity is as follows....[/span][/p][p][span=color: #444444; font-family: Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 12.8px;]2015 began with the happy news that we (Sarah and Laura) were to become aunties. As our sister and brother In law prepared to start a family, we were as as excited as they were to welcome a new addition in the summer. Having safely got past a 12 week scan, we all assumed it was a certainty, and began planning for all the things we dreamed of for this new baby. O[/span][span=color: #222222; font-family: arial, sans-serif; font-size: 12.8px;]ur nephew was stillborn in May 2015. We were all unprepared for the shock and pain of a late loss, which is not supposed to happen. Watching events unfold and feeling so helpless was devastating. [/span][/p][p][span=color: #444444; font-family: Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 12.8px;][lt]span style="color: #222222; font-family: arial, sans-serif; font-size: 12.8px;"[gt][lt]span style="color: #222222; font-family: arial, sans-serif; font-size: 12.8px;"[gt]The following two years brought more heartbreak. Two more much wanted and loved children have been lost, and taken its toll on our sister, brother in law and our whole family.[/span][lt]/span[gt][lt]/span[gt][/p][p][span=color: #444444; font-family: Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 12.8px;][lt]span style="color: #222222; font-family: arial, sans-serif; font-size: 12.8px;"[gt][lt]span style="color: #222222; font-family: arial, sans-serif; font-size: 12.8px;"[gt][lt]span style="color: #444444; font-family: Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 12.8px;"[gt]Watching people you are close to go through and experience such heart wrenching loss is unbearable. [/span][lt]/span[gt][lt]/span[gt][lt]/span[gt][span=color: #444444; font-family: Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 12.8px;]ARC was a life line in many ways. [/span][span=color: #444444; font-family: Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 12.8px;]ARC supports parents facing the unexpected and unimaginable during pregnancy.T[/span][span=color: #444444; font-family: Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 12.8px;]hey offer free and impartial advice to parents as they try to understand difficult antenatal diagnoses and face the painful reality of bereavement[/span][span=font-size: 12.8px; font-family: Roboto;]. [/span][span=color: #444444; font-family: Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 12.8px;]ARC connects bereaved parents with others to help them make sense of their grief and loss. It was a [/span][span=color: #444444; font-family: Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 12.8px;]great comfort knowing that there was a charity out there supporting people with such devastating news.[/span][/p][p][span=color: #444444; font-family: Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 12.8px;][lt]span style="color: #222222; font-family: arial, sans-serif; font-size: 12.8px;"[gt][lt]span style="color: #222222; font-family: arial, sans-serif; font-size: 12.8px;"[gt][lt]span style="color: #444444; font-family: Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 12.8px;"[gt]So now we, the raiders of the lost ARC (a team consisting of 9 walking up hills enthusiasts and Sarah) are going to try and climb the UK's three highest mountains in 24 hours to raise money for (in our humble opinion) a very worthy cause. We want to make something positive out of all this. [/span][lt]/span[gt][lt]/span[gt][lt]/span[gt][span=font-size: 12.8px; font-family: Arial, sans-serif; color: #444444; background-image: initial; background-position: initial; background-size: initial; background-repeat: initial; background-origin: initial; background-clip: initial;]ARC doesn’t receive any government funding so every penny counts. So whether you can spare some change you find down the back of the sofa or want to donate your portfolio of housing developments we would be very greatful. [/span][/p][p][span=font-size: 12.8px; font-family: Arial, sans-serif; color: #444444; background-image: initial; background-position: initial; background-size: initial; background-repeat: initial; background-origin: initial; background-clip: initial;]Thanks in advance.[/span][/p][p][/p][p][/p][quote] [lt]br /[gt][/quote]          [quote] [p][/p][/quote]          [quote] [p][/p][/quote]          [quote] [p][/p][/quote]          [quote] [/quote]
