Andrew's #10kForNurses

I ran 70km (42miles) in first week of October 2017 for Cavell Nurses' Trust because the Trust's work supports those who care for us

October is #10kForNurses month! Donate today, run 10k, walk 10k, sing for 10k secs or even bake 10k worth of calories! Let's raise £10k together to support the UK's nurses, midwives and HCAs

Charity Registration No. 1160148



Thank you. If you're reading this then I know you care about others as I do. I'm Andrew and I want to raise a minimum of £1,000 with your help.

I'll help you by "match-funding" your sponsorship of me £ for £ so if, for example, you sponsor £5 I'll contribute £5 as well.

 I'll do this to a total limit of £500 donated to Cavell by me...but don't let that stop us trying to raise more than my £1,000 target. Also remember every penny counts so it does not matter how little you feel you are able to give.

On a personal note, the people Cavell support are very important to me as I'm sure they are to you...who hasn't at some point been touched by the care of nurses, midwives and healthcare assistants in their life? In the past 2 years I have seen, through work I do listening to and supporting whistle-blowers, the devastating impact that a change in personal circumstances can have on healthcare professionals. 

As Cavell say:

Cavell Nurses' Trust are here for UK Nurses, Midwives and HCAs, whether working or retired, with money and support when they are living through personal or financial hardship, often because of illness, domestic abuse, disability, working poverty and older age. Put simply, we’re ‘Here for Nurses’.

So each day in October I'll run #10kForNurses and I'll keep you updated on my "mileage count". Thanks again for reading thus far...let's show "We're ALL Here for Nurses".

Kind regards,
