Simon's fundraiser for Momentum
Fundraising for Momentum
Verified by JustGiving
This Saturday (16th September), I will be participating in The Great River Race. This will involve a 21.6 mile long row along the Thames from Millwall in East London to the Riverside below Ham House. I am not a regular rower, and this will be quite a stretch for me! Most of our crew are also new to rowing and none of them are experienced oarsmen but we are a crew of adult leaders and parents of children at Ajax Sea Scouts and we hope to complete the course in 4 to 4 ½ hours.
Whilst Ajax is a charity in its own right, we have decided to use the event to try to raise money and awareness for a local charity called Momentum. Momentum are based in East Molesey, and support children with cancer and life-challenging conditions, and their families, helping them to cope more easily whatever the outcome. Working across London, Surrey and Sussex, they partner with ten local hospitals who refer families to them following their child’s diagnosis.
In the last year, Momentum supported 430 families through their child's serious illness diagnosis and treatment, or those who had sadly experienced a bereavement.
