£195raised of £250 target by 12 supporters

Weʼre raising £250 to Raise funds to help Oesophagoose, a charity based at the RVI in Newcastle, in memory of my lovely Mam

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

Story

It's been 3 and a half years since I lost my Mam to Oesophageal Cancer and since then my Dad has been fund raising for 'Oesophagoose' which is a local charity for Oesophageal cancer based at the RVI in Newcastle.

By hosting events, auctions, raffles, singing, telling jokes and selling CDs, he's raised over £11,000 to date.

It's 8 weeks until the next charity event so what I am proposing is to ask for people to sponsor me in abstinence for that 8 week period.

Starting on Sunday 15th July, this is a period that will include the World Cup Final, my wedding anniversary, 8 whole weekends and my fortnight's summer holiday, but despite this my plan is to abstain from the following for the 8 whole weeks:

Alcohol , Caffeine, Chocolate, Crisps and Takeaways !

It's gonna be hell folks but hopefully you'll agree that it's for a good cause.

If you'd like to support me in this ridiculous and quite daunting venture, I would be grateful for any support or donations (however small, it all adds up!)

Thanks everyone

Chris

    Hi All Thanks again to all those who have donated. Today is Day 26 so just the 30 left to go! On Sunday I'll be past the halfway mark and definitely wishing I'd only made it a 4-week challenge instead of an 8-week one! It's not going so bad really. Our wedding anniversary night out was lovely but the meal would have definitely been enhanced by a pint! Thanks again for all your support. Chris

    Thanks everyone for your donations and kind words of support! It's going okay so far. Friday night with pints of iced, fizzy water (instead of iced fizzy cider) was probably one of the low points so far. That being said, the moment when the kids made homemade chocolate chip cookies that I could smell but couldn't eat was pretty tough too! Still, 11 days down only another 45 to go........! Thanks again
