Cancer Research - my little contribution.
Since Race for Life started in 1994, an incredible six million participants have raised over £493million, more than any other UK event series raising money to fund cancer research.
Some of the Race for Life women take part in celebration of surviving a cancer experience. Others take part in memory of a loved one or to give hope to a cancer-free future. But all share a common goal: to raise money for Cancer Research UK's groundbreaking work and to help save more lives.
The money raised so far has been used to fund the work of over 4,000 researchers, doctors and nurses dedicated to helping more people beat cancer.
This year I am taking part in this event, along with members from my Slimming World Group, I am Group Leader. (Race for Life team, not Slimming World!) I am writing to all my friends near and far to ask for support – in many ways.
1. The basic sponsor route where a small donation is made for the event itself. This can be done on-line on our Just Giving page.http://www.raceforlifesponsorme.org/loftus-sw
The big advantage of this as a UK taxpayer is the gift aid supplement.
You have the facility to remain anonymous.
2. Suggest a fund raising activity we could organise.
3. Help out at any of our activities.
4. Suggest ANYTHING at all which we could try.
Any suggestion or donation will be gratefully received. Please feel free to pass this on to anybody you think may be interested or who may themselves have any suggestions or guidance. Watch this space! Thanks so much for taking the time to read this.
