I’ve just had it confirmed to me that the final cheque of 2014 is in the post and has a street value of £100.00! Once it arrives our Just Giving Page will be updated to reflect this and will bring a closure to our 2014 fundraising. Don’t panic though as our 2015 page will be up very soon! The cheque which is in the post is from Gilly’s work and was pledged last year, therefore it will be added to the 2014 total.
At the start of 2014 we set a target of £2,300 and ended the year smashing that total at £4,000 before gift aid has been added. That brings our total for the past three years to £9,000 before gift aid, something we’re all very proud of!
As you should all be aware now we have adopted the Beatson Cancer Charity as our charity to fundraise for, and have done so for the past three years. Our new custom kit has been ordered and reflects, for the first time, the colours of the Beatson Cancer Charity. Our website as you can see has also had a makeover to reflect the charity colours and to give it a freshen up.
2015 sees a new year of fundraising for this wonderful charity, starting with the Etape Caledonia in May, an 81 mile route with 1,196m of climbing. We will also, for the first time, tackle the toughest climb in Britain, the Bealach na Ba! Other events for 2015 have still to be confirmed but we’ll let you know as soon as details have been confirmed.
