On 8th August (i.e. in less than a month!!) Rachel and I will be putting ourselves through a lot of pain when we'll be swimming 1,500m, cycling 40km and then finishing it all off with a short 10km run...! I know it is all self-inflicted, but to help ease the pain and at the same time helps some disadvantaged kids, it would be great if you could sponsor us so that Barnardo's can continue the fantastic work they are doing with disadvantaged children.
Barnardo's believe in the potential of every child and young person, no matter who they are, what they have done or what they have been through. Whatever the issue, from drug mis-use to disability; youth crime to mental health; sexual abuse to domestic violence; poverty to homelessness; Barnardo's believe they can bring out the best in every child and run over 415 projects across the UK. Learn more about Barnardo's on their website.
You can sponsor us through our fundraising page with Virgin Money Giving.
We really appreciate all of your support and donations.
