Story

We are looking to raise £1000 for a great cause - Claire's House Hospice. Claire House helps care for seriously ill and terminally ill children in the local area. The work they do is amazing, and as a group of parents you can't help but be touched by the stories of the children they look after.

As an incentive to raise the money, we have been offered the chance for a full size Optimus Prime truck to come the the Christleton Fete for the afternoon on the 30th June, fitting with the Toys theme of the day. This would be an amazing attraction and should in turn help raise more money for the causes supported by the fete. - but it will only happen if we can raise £1000!

It's a win - win. There will be a range of activities done by the Dads in order to raise the money, which will be paid through me to Claire House. Please dig deep!

Chris Heath and James Chandler have kicked off proceedings with a 2 mile open water swim on Windermere as part of the Great North Swim in June - amazing effort guys, thanks.

And my own effort is... different. This year I got an injury that meant the half marathon plodding I'd planned wasn't possible, and it's an injury that isn't getting better. I'm not a distance swimmer. I last rode a bike when I didn't have a car. But I do have a capacity for mind numbing repetitiveness and a stubborn streak.... So on the 16th June, the day before Father’s day, I'll be taking on the Paradise Island Adventure Golf Course. Literally child’s play. But for 13 straight hours - from 10am to 11pm I'll be putting, with the aim of beating 540 holes - that's 30 rounds of the course, and a hole every 90 seconds for the 13 hours. The guys at the course say it's a bit mental, so that sounds about right.

. Any donation welcome for a great cause, and a daft idea.

Thanks

Christleton Primary Dads

    Thank you to everyone that has donated, we've near as damn it got to our target, which is amazing. Claire House gets £1000 for its amazing work, the fete gets an extra attraction, and we actually have some toys too for a stall at the fete so the school should get some money! Also it won't be Optimus Prime at the fete. They're sending Barricade (the police car) and Bumblebee (VW Beetle) and their Transformer suits. Hopefully noone is disappointed, I'm sure the kids will love them. Thanks again Ben, James, Chris and all the Christleton Dads.

    The amazing Chris Heath and James Chandler are doing a 2 mile open water swim on Windermere https://www.greatrun.org/great-swim/great-north-swim to raise money. Please sponsor them to help raise money for the Claire House hospice. In James words "it may look like doggy paddle" - to be honest I'd struggle to float 2 miles on a lilo so fair play to them! Please support them all you can.
