Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page. I am fundraising for Lifeblood and Thrombosis Support- here is why.

In 2010 I went in for knee surgery, in Feb 2011 I was hospitalised with a DVT and multiple PE's, it was a very scary time. I was in a wheelchair for about 8 months. I have two genetic blood clotting disorders and live with Post Thrombotic Syndrome. When I came out of hospital searching for answers I stumbled across Lifeblood- the support I have found through them has been amazing, the work they do is invaluable. More needs to be known about how common Thrombosis is, how it can affect anyone and deaths and life long conditions can be prevented. Last year was the first year I did some fundraising for Lifeblood and after completing 31km in 5 days I raised over £1000, pretty good going seeing as the year before I was in a wheelchair- this year I would love to smash that target- I hope you can help.  I will be doing a swimathon bake-off. By day swimming, by night baking and delivering cakes to those of you who would like to order some. I shall be aiming to swim 8 km in 5 days(400 lengths) and baking 32 batches of cakes (as I'm 32) so get your orders in quick!!

To download an order form click this link #mce_temp_url#- in the special delivery requirements write when you would like the cakes delivered as all deliveries for National Thrombosis Week are booked but I will be doing deliveries after this date!

 I will also be selling raffle tickets to win a 13" uber cake! If you would like raffle tickets they are £1 a ticket or £5 a strip, I will either sell them to you face-face or you can donat here online and put in your message box how many raffle tickets you want- please make sure you leave your email address so I can email me should you be the winner!!

So please dig deep and donate now.

 

Thank you!
