[We're raising money for SENSE. To donate, visit our JustGiving page here.]
Firstly, thank you for your continued support in our efforts to raise a minimum of £3,600 for SENSE, we really appreciate it.
In terms of training, Paul Bland, Jo Baker, Stacey Wilson, Chris Midwinter, Tom Foreman and Cristina Barbato completed a 13 mile team trek on Sunday, starting at 6.30am to ensure we were back for various commitments in the afternoon. Not as far as planned, but a good pace meant that we made it round in good time.
We have more treks planned for the coming weekends, and will be taking advantage of the extended weekends to increase our mileage... and of course the extended recovery time!
We held a charity Quiz Night this past Monday, at The Furnace in Swindon, and had 80 attendees – a great result! The money raised from the quiz itself, the raffle and various donations meant that we finished the night with a great total of £675.31.
We have had huge support from colleagues at Equi=Media, who offered prizes to put into the raffle, which helped raise the bulk of the cash – we have also rinsed them for donations via the JustGiving page, and made them purchase cakes at various bake sales in our efforts to raise the cash, so we really want to say a HUGE thank you to them for their continued support, as well as local businesses, friends and family who helped make the night a success by coming along and taking part.
We still have over £700 to raise to reach our £3,600 target though, and with just over 3 weeks to go, we desperately need all the help we can get to help us get there for this wonderful cause. Please visit www.justgiving.com/equimedia and give what you can.
