It’s been a really busy month for us and I’d like to start this Charlie’s Chat by saying thank you to a number of special people.
Firstly I would like to thank Barry Williams and John Wilson who completed an unbelievable challenge and put their bodies through a gruelling six days of back to back running events ranging from half marathons to multi-terrain running. Over the six days they ran 52 miles which is no mean feat by anyone’s standards and in doing so raised in excess of £3800! Amazing job, we can’t thank you enough.
We’d also like to thank an amazing group who completed the Dalesway walk challenge which goes from Ilkley (Leeds) to Bowness-on-Windermere (Cumbria). The team walked a massive 80.46 miles on one of the hottest weekends the UK has seen in the last few years! They managed to raise a whopping £2,450, a massive thank you to; Bill Morris, Pete Comyns, Adam Gallimore, Gary Hall, Gavin Clark, Paddy Cousins, Jamie Griffin and last but not least the vehicle support driver Neil Paterson.
These two challenges alone have made a massive difference to what we are trying to do as a charity which has helped us make a £5000 donation to a family whose child is receiving treatment in America. This couldn’t be done without amazing people helping us, thank you.
If you would like to get involved and have a fundraising idea or you would like to do a sponsored event to help us keep making these donations to help save a child’s life then please get in touch at Halewood@jaguarlandrover.com.
