Fundraising for the Chestnut Appeal
January 25, 2015
This year, Stuart and I are raising money for the Chestnut Appeal, which supports men with prostate cancer in the south-west. It is an important charity that has funded six nurses and a variety of treatments and equipment.
The events that we are doing:
- 26th April – Stuart is running London Marathon and Tamsyn is running Southampton Half Marathon
- 18th July – We are both swimming around St. Michael’s Mount
- 9th August – We are both doing IronmanDublin 70.3 (1.9k swim; 90k bike; 21.1k run)
- 5th September – This is the big one. We are going to tackle the Scilly Swim Challenge – 15k swim and 10k walk.
I only started learning to swim in 2013 and neither of us has ever swum more than 2.8k before, so this is going to take a lot of training. Stuart and I are hoping that you’ll support us on our way to completing this tough year… and that you’ll also sponsor us to help our chosen charity. To make this easy, we have set up a JustGiving account:
Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity. So it’s the most efficient way to donate – saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
We are hoping to raise £200 (about US$300), and are very grateful to everyone who has already sponsored us, as we’re already a third of the way there. It is possible to donate in a variety of currencies, including GB£, US$ and €. Every donation, no matter how small, will make a difference to someone’s life.
Massive THANK YOU to Rob, Neil, Henry, Di, Clare, Ellie, Gary, Chris and Adrian – your generous donations are much appreciated 🙂
