Thread: Raising money for the Armed Forces.

  1. #1

    Raising money for the Armed Forces.

    Hello everyone

    On March the 25th-27th 2011 I'm taking part in the Jurassic Coast Challenge. It involves running three marathons over three days, one per day. The route is from Studland bay to Lyme Regis on the South coast. It's mostly all of road with 10000ft of elevation along the way!

    Races & Camps

    I'm trying to raise 1000 for Help for Heroes and another 1000 for the Household Cavalry (HCR) Operational casualties fund, both registered charities. The HCR has suffered many loses and many soldiers have been injured with life changing injuries over the last few years and will need financial support for many years to come, as will many UK service people. I use to be a member of the Household Cavalry hence why I'm fund raising.

    Help for Heroes needs no introduction. Its fantastic charity which has given out over 56 million in recent years and raised 65 Million to support soldiers and families of killed and wounded people from the UK armed forces.

    Should you wish to donate please visit my justgiving website. It's honestly really easy to make a donation, click on the link and then click donate button, it takes seconds to do!!

    The Stalking Directory has very kindly allowed me to post this post, but I must stress this is in no way connected to the Stalking Directory website or team, but it's a great way to reach many people.

    Any donation would be gratefully received. Any questions please feel free to contact me.

    Many thank's,

    John Eastick.

    Nice one John!
    I've just stuck a tenner in each to start you off. Ten from me and ten from a shooting friend.
    Good Luck!

    I've just noticed that it has come up with 'Donation by Monkey Spanker' on your page which could be misconstrued!

    Go for it John! Donation duly made.

    Let me know if you need a support party / stretcher bearer at the end!

    I did the South Downs Trailwalker speed march (100km) a few years ago in aid of the Gurkha Welfare Trust. I lost 4 toenails and realised I'm not a young man anymore.

    I'm sure you'll find it a walk in the park

    Best Wishes

    Good for you John, one of the few charities that I'll happily donate to. I don't mind a 400miler on my bike, but I'll leave the running to you youngsters
    Cheers, Pete.

    Many thanks downwind. It will be much appreciated! 400m sounds pretty harsh!
