Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Who says you can't have fun whilst raising money - the main thing about this event is to have a really good time - because if you are enjoying yourself well you don't mind giving to a good cause.

This page will be open until the 31st Dec 2017 with the Charity Ball on the 9th Dec being the main fund raising event - I will however be collecting money from various place throughout the year. This would be from collection tins and selling items from The Alzheimer's Society such as key rings and badges.

Also John Deere have kindly donated a ride-on-mower for our Ball as a raffle prize which we hope to raise a lot of money from - in exchange me and my daughter Kathryn are attempting to set a New World Record travelling from John O'Groats to Lands' End on a ride-on-mower - the current record stands at 4 days 23 hours - please contact me if you like to purchase a £5 raffle ticket for a chance to win a £5300 ride-on-mower 07393 453 172

The main reason for me and my family doing this is because my dad was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s about 10 years ago – he was a hardworking man physically fit but unable to enjoy his time of retirement, enjoy his family, enjoy his Grandchildren - he is now 77 – I fear the same fate for myself – so please donate to help find a cure, not only will you be helping me you may be helping yourself or a loved one.

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. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
