Ok, so the countdown is well and truly on, and it’s just a matter of days until we start the challenge, which, I’m looking forward to, yet equally petrified about. I just don’t want anyone – including myself to pickup any injuries or anything, we all deserve to finish this challenge, we’ve all worked hard to get to this point and raised a lot of money. A lot of money indeed, which brings me to the first thank you, to everyone who’s donated so far! THANK YOU! You’re a hero! Now we need your friends to be heroes, and family to join you and also be heroes! We need to smash the £10,000 barrier, that’s our target! That’s why we’re putting ourselves through the suffering of going up and down “hills” day after day by foot and bike.
On to my next thank you, and that’s to URGE Cycles, who’ve been amazing and have given our bikes a going over prior to us setting off this weekend, and also on top of that, are donating a spares package for us to help us keep going during the challenge, we’re no doubt going to pickup countless punctures etc so a huge thank you to Alice and Nick, you’ve made a massive difference to our challenge! Please check them out here: www.urgecycles.co.uk
My next thank you goes to the lovely people at Soreen, after me hounding them on Twitter for days and badgering them and getting numerous ReTweets, I think it was 33 in total? They (Well, Lucy Ardern to be exact) got in touch and sent us through a truck load of malt loaf, cycling jerseys and running vests! There were 13 boxes in total, see below!
So after unpacking and working out what we had I broke the news to the team who were obviously thrilled, who wouldn’t? Free malt loaf!!! We decided to use some of it as a marketing ploy and bait people into donating at the fundraiser in return for free malt loaf, it seemed to work too! So Soreen, you should have some new fans out there too.
We’ll be sure to keep you up to date with our progress across all the social type networks, we’ll try and blog too, if we’re not destroyed at the end of each day that is. Oh, one last pic of all the squidgy malt loaf! We’ll be enjoying this next week!
