Village Clean Up

Please see the following message from Jonathan Smith who grew up in Long Newnton at Larkhill where his mother Maggie still lives. From a young child he was involved in all village activites. He learnt to bell ring so the church bells could be rung for the Millenium. He went to school in Tetbury and then to Exeter University and now works in London

As I’m sure many of you know I am attempting to complete the London Marathon on Sunday 13th April. This will be my first marathon and indeed I only started to run 10 months ago – as you can imagine I’ve had to embark on a challenging training programme. I started to run at least 15 miles a week from December –come rain or shine (it has mostly been the former!) to give myself the best possible chance of completing the course.

If you have the opportunity to make a donation it would be very much appreciated. I am running for a Leukaemia research charity which is part of the Royal Marsden Hospital – the David Adams Leukaemia Appeal Fund. Their major project at the moment is to raise enough money to fund a new unit - The Translational Genetics Laboratory. It will use the latest genetic testing to see how the genetic make-up of a person affects why they develop cancer and what treatment will be most appropriate for them.

If you would like to sponsor me, please follow the link below:

“Hold a Fish and Chip Supper to help spinal cord injured people rebuild lives after injury”

Great British Fish and Chip Supper – Friday 16th May 2014

Want to eat Fish and Chips, while raising money for charity? Hold a fish and chip supper on Friday 16th May 2014 whilst raising awareness of spinal cord injury and supporting SIA’s vital services.

You can hold a fish and chip supper in your own home, at work or hold a larger supper at your local community centre.

SIA will provide a fundraising pack containing hints and tips, recipes, invitations and donation envelopes. By inviting 8 friends and asking them to donate an additional £5.00 means you will raise at least £40.00 from your supper but we will also give you additional fundraising ideas to raise even more money for SIA.

In 2014 SIA is celebrating its 40th anniversary and so we want to make the batter matter and raise £25,000 from everyone holding suppers. Last year we raised £12,500 from the suppers.

The money raised from the suppers will help the Spinal Injuries Association offer support to individuals who become paralysed and their families, from the moment a spinal injury occurs, and for the rest of their lives by providing services and publications which enable and encourage paralysed people to rebuild lives after spinal cord injury.

Every year in the UK over 1,000 people experience a spinal cord injury and there are an estimated 40,000 spinal cord injured people in the UK alone.

Community Fundraising Manager, Elizabeth Wright, says, “The Fish and Chip Supper is a wonderful opportunity for a great evening with friends and family. We are also encouraging people who work to hold a Fish and Chip Lunch in their work places to raise even more funds. You may be even a local community group wanting to run a fun evening with your group.

For more information or request a fundraising pack call Elizabeth Wright on 0845 071 4350 or email fundraising@siafishandchips.co.uk or visit www.siafishandchips.co.uk
