Members of the Community Week Committee from Finance and Comms at Wakefield House continued their fundraising efforts with the Sport Relief mile last Sunday. However, their ‘run’ was with a twist as they decided it would fun to involve their pooches!
Rachel Cook takes up the story:
A beautiful sunny Sunday was the perfect setting for our Sport Relief Mile. Hundreds of people turned out to local beauty-spot Coate Water to take part in either a 1 or 3 mile walk/run in aid of Sport Relief. We and the dogs really enjoyed the day and were amazed that we far exceeded our £50 fundraising target. Sacha, Trixie and Smokey completed the mile with bags of energy remaining, whilst poor puggy Stanley had to take a breather and cool down with an ice-lolly!
We were amazed by people’s generosity, and were thrilled to have raised £200! I’m not sure how much of the support was for us, and how much was for the dogs though!
Staying with Wakefield House, Dave Moore of Central Ops went an extra two miles for his Sport Relief action held at Staffordshire University. He says:
In total myself and my stepson raised £402.30 for Sports Relief. Although being the hottest day of the year it was a good run.
This means Dave smashed his fundraising target of £300, so as he says on his fundraising page, you can give yourselves a pat on the back!
