A group of friends from London found an extreme way to have a final big hurrah before they head out to colleges all over America – they took on the Tough Mudder challenge, raising almost £11,000 for JDRF so far
Friends Sylvie and Alejandra gathered second hand designer clothes and held a champagne sale at Alejandra's house in Twickenham in aid of JDRF. They then held a coffee morning event with the clothes left over for anyone who couldn't attend the first sale boosting their fundraising to almost £1,000.
Some people will always go the extra mile for charity but Gavin Griffiths, a 21-year-old from Kent, is going even further. He has created the 30/30 challenge – running 30 miles every day for 30 days – with Sir Steve Redgrave MBE, boxing champion David Haye and Sir Geoff Hurst MBE all showing their support.
Andrew Evens and Suzanne Feander from Hemel Hempstead organised a family fun day at their local pub the Royal Stag to raise funds for the cure. The day was filled with lots of fun activities, with everything from a raffle to a bouncy castle. Andrew and Suzanne raised a very impressive £350 for JDRF. But not content with just one fundraising event, Andrew and Suzanne also helped to organise a sponsored walk at their son’s school, raising £730.
The Sandcastle Nursery in High Wycombe were recently inspired by Mary Berry and decided to hold their own bake off in aid of JDRF. Taking place in Valentine’s day week, inspired staff members took time off their very busy schedules and indulged in some creative baking. With many tasty treats on offer, the cakes quickly sold out and we are pleased to say that Sandcastle Nursery raised a impressive £162.61
Raissa Whittaker-Standing and friends organised a concert on 21 March 2013 to raise money for JDRF. Guests were treated to 12 different songs which all featured a live band. Raissa, who is 16 years old, was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 2004.
This April two friends from Cambridge will be taking on a rather unusual challenge of crossing India in an old battered tuk-tuk in just two weeks.
With over 40 people attending, Ruth Harvey raised a remarkable £409.79 through the coffee morning she held in Croydon last month. Along with the tea and coffee; Ruth also arranged a ‘bring and buy' sale, raffle and cakes (which she asked to be donated).
JDRF would like to say a big thank you to Ruth Harvey, her son Reon and all those who attended for their support of JDRF and the type 1 diabetes research we fund.
The Village School Preparatory School for Girls found a creative way of raising money for JDRF on behalf of student Libby Hannam, who was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of six. The pupils raised £307 by bringing in wrapped items to be sold, raffle tickets and bake sales over the last couple months.
Here’s what everyone has been up to over the last few months raising money for the cure. Thank you to everyone involved…
