My First Fundraising Event: An Update

As many people know I’ll be running the London Marathon next year for WellChild, the national charity for sick children. As part of accepting a charity place with WellChild I have a fundraising target of £1,600. I made the first donation of £100 to confirm my place, and I have since raised a good amount already through online donations, selling second hand goods, and from making crafts and selling them. However, I always knew that the biggest earner would be from hosting events. That’s why, with a pretty small turnaround time, I arranged my first event. A charity family magic… [Read More]

London Marathon Fundraising Update

Last week I shared a blog post with you about how I’ve accepted a charity place for the London Marathon with WellChild, the national charity for sick children. My fundraising target is £1,600. This is a huge amount of money to raise, so I’ve decided to give myself the best chance, I’d start fundraising right away! In order to confirm my acceptance of my charity place, I was asked to kickoff my fundraising with a £100 donation. I did this pretty much the same day I received the email offering me the charity place. With my £100 donation confirmed, I’m… [Read More]

Help us help Bliss and CRUK

Last year my husband and I started our very own charity campaign. Our aim is to raise £1,000 for Cancer Research UK and £1,000 for Bliss, the baby charity. We’re so pleased that so far we have raised a total of £701.00. As well as asking friends, family and complete strangers to donate to these two great charities, we also organised a charity raffle and a children’s Christmas Party. Both were a huge success and helped to raise lots of money. So now we are back! We will be skydiving for these two amazing charities – hopefully this year! We… [Read More]

Charity Update

The last charity update I published was on the 11th of November. I thought I would post another little update now to let you all know how our fundraising efforts are going. If you don’t already know, Twin Daddy and I are trying to raise £2,000 for Cancer Research UK and another £2,000 for Bliss, the baby charity.  Both charities are very close to our hearts. In 2005, after a brave and long battle with ovarian cancer my mum passed away.  In 2012 our beautiful twin daughters were born six weeks early and spent 27 days in neonatal care.  For… [Read More]
