2014 is an exciting year for MPN Voice Fundraising. We have been set the challenge to raise £100,000 to fund the Epidemiology Study and with your help we will.
Doing Your Own Thing
Many of you held events in January and we are looking forward to receiving the photos and editorial about them.
Kelly Sanders put forward MPN Voice as her workplace Charity of the Year, and her colleagues at Lufthansa Technik have raised an amazing £439 with a raffle. More events are planned for the coming year, including a ‘Cake Bake Competition’ next month, I’m looking forward to being a judge! Lufthansa Technik has very kindly offered to match the total raised.
MPN Voice was chosen by the Latin Dance Society at Royal Holloway University London, for the ‘Strictly Come Holloway Night’ on 6th February. Many thanks to Ashlea Kemp for putting MPN Voice forward and organizing this event and raising £1,348.20. Looking forward to seeing the photos!
Cara Martin nominated MPN Voice recently as her chosen charity for her work’s Annual Dinner Dance where they raised an amazing total of £1,670 to share between 5 chosen charities.
Andrea Headech is organizing a MPN Voice Charity 60s Disco on Saturday 8th March in Ashford, Kent. Come along to this ‘fab’ 60s themed disco and help raise money for MPN Voice. A curry meal is also included in the ticket price of £15 per person. To purchase tickets please telephone 07742 091 337 (tickets cannot be purchased through MPN Voice). Thank you Andrea for organizing this disco and for donating all the money raised to MPN Voice for research.
Lynn Austin and her family have definitely taken up the challenge. March is going to be an exciting month, with Lynn and Don doing a sky-dive!! Her sons-in-law, Danny Newson and Lee Cross are running the Colchester Half Marathon on 16th March. Training is going well, if a bit soggy!

Jillian is running the Chester Half Marathon for her dad on 18th May and has started her training, raising awareness in her MPN Voice t-shirt.
Charlotte is also running for her father, doing the 10k Chiltern Chase on 8th June in aid of MPN Voice.
Thank you to everyone who has planned or is planning their own Fundraising Event for MPN Voice. Don’t forget to contact me, firstname.lastname@example.org, and tell me what you are doing so that I can send you a Fundraising Pack, t-shirt, flags, balloons, things that will help your fundraising and raise awareness of MPN Voice.
MPN Voice 2014 Fundraising Events
If you don’t feel like organizing your own event then join us and take part in one of our MPN Voice Fundraising Events.
Your MPN Voice Fundraising Team are currently finalising details for a MPN Voice Abseil and MPN Voice Coffee Morning. Dates and full information to follow shortly.
Do you feel like a Challenge? Then sign up through MPN Voice Fundraising for The Thames Path Challenge on Saturday 13th September. A 25k walk or run from Runnymede to Cookham - thamespathchallenge.com/eve...
The Thames Path National Trail is unique, with its beautiful scenery, steeped in history. It’s the only long distance path to follow the river for most of its length. Many will walk the 25k at their own pace (yes, that’s me), some will jog parts of it and others will run the full 25k in half marathon style. There will be great on-event support by Action Challenge, including food and drink stops, medics and massage! Hopefully by September it will have dried out!
Registration is £25, with a commitment to raise £145. If you would like to find out more please contact me, email@example.com.
MPN Voice is continuing to flourish and grow, helping more people who have been diagnosed with a MPN. The Epidemiology Study will uncover information about the patterns of these cancers and understand which people get MPNs and why they get them. This will lead to better treatments being developed and ultimately to finding a cure.
We have been challenged to raise £100,000, with your help – WE WILL.
