I am re-posting this blog as it has been brought to my attention that for some reason comments can't be left on my earlier blog, so, as it's not behaved I've deleted it!
This year celebrates the 10th Birthday of NRAS. A charity that I am passionate about, not least because I have RA! I would like to do something, undoubtedly quite insignificant in the whole scheme of things, but which will, in some small way, help NRAS continue and extend the fantastic service it offers.
So, you ask, what am I going to do? In a moment of madness, I decided “10” individual challenges would be the way to go on the premise that for each challenge I chose I would always have a group of people I could reach. Well, you always get someone who doesn’t “do” sponsorship or doesn’t want to see another cake, let alone eat it ... you know the ones?! Now, there’s no excuse!
Be a 'Smartie 4 NRAS'.
Please pledge to collect a ‘Smarties’ tube of 10p pieces. Each tube holds approximately £5 - £5.50. Your donation can be pledged to me either by personal message or as a comment below (I hope!). Donations can be made directly to NRAS through my Just Giving page, justgiving.com/Lyn-Wilson.
All contributions are very much appreciated. Thank you everyone
During the year I will be adding some additional challenges including a 10 km swim (this requires warmer weather and better knees, so later in the year it is then!). Plans could change … I will keep you posted.
This isn’t just about me and what I’m doing. Each one of us can get involved by setting up our own ‘NRAS 10th Birthday Challenge’ within our areas, amongst relatives, friends, neighbours and our local groups. But maybe that’s not for you, it’s not everyone’s cup of tea, we weren’t all born fundraisers. So, please if you are able, try to support one of my challenges so that together we can benefit NRAS and the thousands who live a life with RA.
Thank you again for your support.
