Well hello again – this is my second blog on fundraising so what’s new this week??????
Verity are striving to raise £5000 by the end of the year to cover the cost of hosting our website and our much needed discussion board for all you lovely ladies….so this week our fearless trustees undertook the Adidas 5k challenge in Hyde Park on Sunday 11 September 2011.
After an unearthly hour of getting a train at 8.21am on a Sunday we arrived ready and raring to go. Alison had set herself a target (and according to her husband, she had been telling everyone all week) that she must beat her time from last year of 55minutes. Well she smashed it with a spritely walk of 49 minutes and 20 seconds. (ROUND OF APPLAUSE PLEASE)……..
So huge congratulations to Alison, Caroline and Rachel who took part…the money is still being counted but as we say at verity any money is good money!!
It’s not just trustees who can raise funds as we all give Verity alot of time anyhow – so any members wanting to fundraise, please get in touch with me firstname.lastname@example.org.
Until next time…
