Local Hero: the half way leaders are...

  • We’ve reached the half way point of Local Hero 2017.

    Francesca and Rachel, who are raising funds for Friends of Hillside School, have stretched their lead to 16 points raising £1875 in the process  – a strong but by no means unassailable lead.

    Meanwhile, the chasing pack is becoming increasingly concertinaed. Just 15 points (donations) currently separate 7th to 20th place.

    Each week we are inspired by the creativity and energy put in by our Local Heroes. This week is no exception.

    Here are some of our highlights from week 3:

    Fundraising is an art!

    Charlotte Clark is creating a bespoke piece of wall art to be exhibited as a permanent fixture in the Clifton Community Arts Centre. She will be incorporating the artwork of local community groups such as schools and charities. 

    Knit you usual challenge

    Avid knitters from the "Made to give......with love" group in Plymouth  are  getting sponsored to knit links. These links will be built into a chain which will be measured in September.  All funds go to Jeremiah's Journey.

    Digital detox 

    These days detoxes take all types  - for Anoushka Yeoh and friends going without screens for a day is the hardest challenge of all! 

    Tour de France Force

    After conquering Kilimanjaro in 2017, Lynda Dean and the wider Sporting Family Change Team are at it again – this time cycling mighty 240 Miles from Bath to Paris! 

    “…Even if we’re just dancing in the dark…”

    Julia Fletcher is hosting on an energetic night of glow sticks and Lycra for Basingstoke group,  Helping Hands for the Blind.

    Fundraising from 10,000 feet above!

    6 brave souls will be jumping out of a plane in a tandem skydive for Oxford Cruse, which provides free bereavement support and counselling to people in Oxfordshire.

    If you’ve got stirring story or a creative challenge why not get in touch!

    Until next week, happy fundraising!
