    Story

    THE GREAT BEDFORD FOODBANK SPONSORED DALEK PUSH
    SATURDAY 8TH OCTOBER 2016
    PATRONS: SOPHIE ALDRED and KATY MANNING
    (who played Ace and Jo Grant in 'Doctor Who')

    SOPHIE ALDRED writes:
    'Although my character, Ace, beat up a Dalek with a baseball bat rather than pushed one round the streets of Bedford, I am delighted to be part of this brilliant event. Bedford Foodbank is a brilliant organisation, making a real difference to people who really need support. Please donate however much you can, large or small, and help the Daleks do something worthwhile for a change!'

    WHAT?
    The Great Bedford Foodbank Sponsored Dalek Push will take place on the morning of Saturday 8th October. You may have heard of bed-pushes, where people push beds through the streets as a sponsored fund-raising activity. But we're not going to push beds; we're going to push Daleks.

    WHY?
    Amazingly enough, The Great Bedford Foodbank Sponsored Dalek Push is being held to raise funds for Bedford Foodbank. Each month, they feed about 500 children and adults in crisis. The Foodbank's annual running costs are in excess of £30,000 a year... and we're hoping to raise £5000 of this by the Dalek Push.

    THANK YOU FOR ANY SUPPORT YOU CAN GIVE: IT IS MASSIVELY APPRECIATED!

      Hello everybody. Just to say THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for the incredibly generous donations! With the other monies donated or pledged, we're set to make well over £2000 from the event. Forgive me if I don't thank you properly individually just yet; catching my breath from a day spent repairing and washing Daleks in preparation for tomorrow. Bedford town, here come the Daleks!

      Thanks so much to everyone who's donated; apologies if I don't have your address or haven't been able to notify you individually. If you feel moved to ask friends and family to donate to us as well, please do -- but it's a bit of a cheek for me to ask, as you've been so kind already! Simon
