Challenge 20

To help celebrate our 20th year, we’re inviting everyone to attempt something with the theme ’20’. We already have people who will: enter 20 Dog Agility Competitions; walk 20,000 Steps around Grafham Water;  donate 20 Pigtails to a Children’s wig charity; read 20 Books; complete 20 Hours of Painting; hold coffee mornings for 20 people… and lots more.

Watch this short video to give you more ideas. 

Update on fundraising efforts

These are just a few of our members and supporter who are raising funds for CLL Support...

Hannah White completed the Westonbirt Arboretum Half Marathon and has raised an amazing £1,348 including Gift Aid.

Katie Savino completed the Leeds 10K and has raised an amazing £709 including Gift Aid. 

John Greensmyth completed his epic recumbent bike ride from Lands End to John O Groats and has raised £4,478 including Gift Aid.

David Warner has raised an amazing £5,575 including Gift Aid from his Guinness Book of Records attempt to be the oldest male to walk from John O’Groats to Land’s End.  At the time of writing David had reached Devon.

Ian McLaren did the MOKRUN back in May and raised £562 including Gift Aid.

We now have 3 ladies, possibly 4, that are taking part in a Swimming challenge as part of our Challenge 20: Rachel, Laura and Kate.  They’re each swimming 20km/20 miles over the Summer – not all in one go I should add.  Well done, ladies.  Fantastic Challenge.  We look forward to hearing more.

Kerry Evenden is having a Summer concert with her Community Choir on 13th September so we’ll have more news about that later in the Summer.

Helen Paterson and her customers at the Cherry Tree have recently had a raffle in aid of CLL Support raising over £100.  They have more events planned for later in the year.

A massive thank you so much to all our fundraisers and to those who have donated. Also, a big thank you to those of you who are raising awareness of CLL/SLL. Your support is really appreciated by all of us at CLL Support and our members.
