Raising Funds for Levana School Partnership

0801Levana

Please bear with me for a quick plug for this small charity, Levana School Partnership.

Sue and I are delighted to be able to help raise a bit of cash for this township primary school in Cape Town.  We know that over the years the funding received from the charity has made a big difference to the school.

We are joining my son Mike, and our friend Roger, in a sub team of four.  The event is the Manchester 10 kilometre (6 miles) race, which will be held on Sunday 26 May.  We’d like to have exceeded our sponsorship target of £750 by then.

Every little helps, so please don’t be embarrassed to donate just a fiver towards this worthy cause, should you feel inclined to support it.  Our Just Giving site, in Mike’s name, is here.  Our thanks go to the 31 people who have already donated – your contributions are much appreciated.

My daughter, Kate, is also taking part, but in a rather more leisurely fashion due to pregnancy.  She’ll be walking.  There are still a number of places available in our team of 20, so if anyone out there would like to take part, either walking or running, they should contact Nell at nell.banfield@ntlworld.com as soon as possible.

Our ‘sub team’ will all be trying to break the one hour barrier, and I promise to go as fast as I can despite tired legs from the TGO Challenge and not having been running for a month or so.

Hi Martin

Will be thinking of you from Friday!
Hope the weather improves for you before then. Can't believe its a year since the last one.
Take care - love Alison xx

Thanks Alison, I'm looking forward to it. Weather in Plockton seems very good this afternoon.

Just for the record, the run went well. Our team of four all came home within our one hour target, and as of 26 May had raised nearly £1100. Well done everyone, and keep that money coming in...
