Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page!

Two groups from one of Entheos' favourite clients - Franklins Solicitors in Milton Keynes and Northampton - have recently come through the 'Raising the Bar' personal and professional development programme, so it's an honour to have been invited to join 15 members of staff to take on the gruelling Three Peaks Challenge in Yorkshire.

A team decision was made by Franklins on which charity to support and the Alzheimer's Society was chosen as it has personal meaning to many of the staff.  Alzheimer's Disease is on the increase, affecting so many families and the Society desperately need funds for more extensive research.

On the 17th September 2011, I'll join the team from Franklins to participate in the 24.5 mile walk, crossing Pen-y-ghent (2,276 ft) Whernside (2,415ft) and Ingleborough (2,372ft).  In 12 hours.  I'll be the 'matriarch' of the expedition (ok, the one with the most wrinkles!), I think, and just hope I won't be shown up by the youth and agility that will surround me. 

Thank you for taking the time to sponsor me - I'm hoping to 'do my bit' as the only non-Franklins employee on the team, so please give that credit card an airing!

Now the formal bit:  Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please dig out your credit card and donate now.  If anyone wants to pop some muscle soak through the front door, that will also be welcome!!
