Arch to Arc Christmas Update. 27% of Target Reached!!…….

Things are really starting to push forward, we’ve had one or two more riders setup their VirginGiving pages and we’re topping 27% of the target already!  This is way beyond where I’d hoped we’d be by this time.  Sally is storming away with sponsorship money, over £1000 in a mater of weeks!! Having said that this is no time to get complacent and we still have a long way to go to get to that £20,000 goal. 

As another reminder for those wishing to ride, don’t forget to get your deposits in ASAP, here are the instructions again (click this link to my previous blog). Half the riders have already signed up, so don’t delay or you’ll miss the opportunity to ride with us this time round.

As for next steps, well, I’ll be meeting up with the James Whale Fund for Kidney Cancer on the 15th January 2010 to look at booking the Hotels and Ferry/Rail journeys, and as I said previously I’ll be looking to do an exploratory trip of the route towards the end of January (and I know others may well join me).

Outside of this things are ticking away nicely.  We have the prospect of getting a couple of major sponsors which will be amazing.  I know we have PR in place and that we’ll have coverage at the start and finish line but if anyone knows how to engage any other media channels between now and the big day then please let me know.

Anyway, that’s it for now.  Have a great festive season! Don’t worry about over doing the mince pies and turkey ….. the training starts for real in January!!

Merry Christmas!!

Please sponsor me at either VirginGiving or JustGiving
