Hi Everyone ! It’s been a couple of weeks since I wrote to you all and gave you an update as to where we were.
Well, things are coming along a pace, the team is negotiating hotels etc and it all seems to be getting there as planned, however there is still much to do and we need your help!
The good news is that we’re getting more and more interest from people wanting to cycle which is very encouraging …. Well over 40 so far !!
Now, here’s the tough bit and where you can help. As I’ve mentioned before we are trying to keep the numbers in at around 20 people to make sure it goes off without a hitch in the first year…… so, you’ll need to get your skates on to sign up and get your £300 deposits into the fund by Jan 2nd 2010 as places will go fast. To date we have already raised over 17% of the £20,000 target which is great news.
I sent out a notification to everyone a week or so ago asking folks to setup their VirginGiving pages as soon as possible. If you are struggling with VirginGiving (as a number of people have been) then feel free to create a JustGiving page instead if you find it easier, but be quick as we’ll will be cutting off any new entries once we get to 20.
I realise a number of you have signed up to say “Yes” on the Facebook page, however we will still need the firm commitment of a ViginGiving or JustGiving page + the £300 deposit … this is what will secure your entry.
So, to avoid disappointment be as quick as you can!
As always if you’ve got any problems creating your pages or you need any aspects of the event explaining then please don’t hesitate to contact either myself or Nikki Grant at the fund.
Thanks for the support!
