2011 Charity Round Up

December 19, 2011

To date 2011 has been my most successful year for charitable efforts and raising money and awareness. Here is a round up of what I have contributed in 2011. (apologies if I have left anyone out, I am sure there are a few more).

Big Bath Sleep Out 2011 – Raised £270.00 for the Julian House Homeless charity by sleeping rough for 1 night in March. Then a further donation of £10.00 as I was unable to take part in the Circuit of Bath walk due to a prior event.

Donated £10.00 to Childrens Hospices UK – via Twitter , can’t remember why but I did, think they had some raffle money stolen.

Race for Life 2011 – Raised only £29.90 (plus my £15 entry fee) by running the Cancer Research Race for life in June.

Charity Twenty20 Cricket Match – Won a shirt in the Charity Auction for a bid of £23.45 for Breakthrough Breast Cancer in June.

Donated £10.00 to Havens Hospices as a nominated charity from my 1000th Twitter follower in  July.

Donated £15.00 to the Rainbow Centre for Children to help towards their summer ball fundraising efforts.

By organising a successful re-union event helped raise £250.00 for the Forever Friends appeal in September.

Throughout the year – donated around £50.00 to Primrose Hill Community Woodland

Movember 2011 I sponsored a few ‘Mo Bros’ to the tune of £30.00

Sponsored Tom Trosborg who ran the Athens marathon in November for Medicines Sans Frontieres only £10.00 but all helps.

Also renewed my membership of People Against Poverty and also made a few other donations throughout the year.

In all I make that over £700.00 (probably a lot more, and plus Gift Aid too) and although I didn’t donate all of this myself, I was part of making this happen.

And next year this is what I will be up to again…….

Bath Half Marathon 2012 Currently have raised £70.00 for the RUH Forever Friends Appeal, will report back on how I do, but please do sponsor me.

Race for Life 2012 I will take part in this again, but I think instead of running in Bath, I may try Bristol or Swindon.

Marathon 2012 – I intend to run my first (and probably last) marathon in 2012, not yet decided on where but at the moment its either New York or Las Vegas! – If anyone knows of a good cause – please email me happy to run on behalf of several charities if necessary.

Updates on all my 2012 fundraising efforts will be posted on Twitter and Facebook but whatever happens I will try to beat my record for fundraising in 2012 and thanks so much to everyone who sponsored me and continues to support my efforts.
