Fundraising 2014 Spring

FUNDRAISING

Here we are another year well underway and the thinking cap on as to what we can do to raise some funds to swell the CLLSA coffers and enable the Trustees and Volunteers to continue to serve our members to the best of our ability. 2013 saw a very successful, and profitable, London 10k in July and several other events being entered by our valiant fund raisers.

Registration for the London 10k is now open. CLLSA has again reserved 18 places in this event and these places are open to anyone wishing to pledge raising at least £150 and opening a web page on Just Giving in favour of CLLSA. When you request a registration form we will give details of how to register a Just Giving page.

The London 10k run will take place on 13th July 2014 more information can be obtained by visiting www.thebritish10klondon.co.uk. However, registration enquiries and requests for registration forms should be emailed to derek.mcglashan@cllsupport.org.uk and not done through the organisers web site.

Free T shirts are available for this event displaying the CLLSA logo and message Living Well With CLL.. T shirts are produced in a standard cotton material and are not running shirts. Should you require a running shirt other than the standard T shirt then we would ask you to send it to Derek McGlashan, address will be supplied on request. On our receipt of the garment we will have the CLL logo and message printed on the shirt and return at no cost top you. We do need 3 weeks from receipt of shirt to our return to you.

We have several fundraisers already signed up to raise funds on our behalf and list the events and contacts should you wish to follow their progress or support them.

Victoria Joyce and Dan, as I write Victoria and Dan, her husband to be in 3 weeks time ,are really up for a challenging fund raising venture. They are taking part in the" Honeymoon" Everest Region and Annurpan Base camp Trek on 9th May 2014. Victoria and Dan are not only raising funds for CLLSA but carrying a bag of books and resources donated by the Manchester Health Academy to give to the poor families living throughout the villages higher up.
