Sophie Braves The Shave!

My fundraisining has come to an end and what a journey it has been! I am delighted to announce that with the cash donations direct to the charities my grand total is 

£7471.08 !!

Online   £4104.58

Offline   £2720.00

Gift Aid   £646.50

Firstly THANKYOU for visiting my page! I am utterly delighted and humbled to have hit my £2000 target- thank you to every one who helped me reach it!

As I've still got 6 weeks to go, I've updated my target to see if  I can get to £3500! Any donation big or small means the world, so thank you 

I'm overwhelmed to have doubled my target! With just over a week to go I'm less than two hundred pounds away from hitting £5000 with gift aid! 

I am raising money 'as a team' because I wanted to raise money for multiple charities. These are PoTS UK, Ehlers-Danlos Support UK, Mast Cell Action and Stroke Assosciation. Unfortunately PoTS UK don't have a page so this will be made up of my Unveiled by Sophie sales and cash donations!

Why am I doing this? 

5 years ago I ran a half marathon for Cancer Research and it provided me with such an immense sense of achievement knowing that I had made a difference that I wanted to do something again. I was hoping to complete the London Marathon the following year, when my life was turned upside down when I became very ill, unable to stand and being faced with three serious and incurabe illnesses. Running a marathon is no longer on the cards for me as my joints just wouldn't take the beating (a half was bad enough!) so I decided to shave my head as this is equally challenging but less dependant on my day to day health! I will be donating my hair to make a wig for a little person going through cancer treatment along with supporting these charities. If you can please spare some pennies so that other people like me don't have to wait years to get a diagnosis and if nothing more, have a google, read about these conditions because you never know who you may come across that it may help. These conditions are rare and frankly terrifying but with more research, more awareness the future is looking alot more bright. Please pop over and check out any of my pages to see how I'm doing! Lots of love Sophie x

Remember: Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never share them with anyone or send you unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. They'll make sure Gift Aid (an additional 25%) is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer, too. That means more money goes to the charity, faster, with JustGiving.
