Heyyylo 🙂 I hope you are keeping safe and well!
Can you believe we are on day number 100 of lockdown! Woooosh just like that! It has been rather long haul in doors hasn’t it? I must say I have been making a huge effort to find things to keep me busy and productive! The majority of my energy and thoughts are kept entertained by my fundraising! Of course… 🙂
Fundraising for Friends of anchor will never ever get old! ❤
So since May I have come up with new and exciting ways to raise funds and awareness of Friends of Anchor.
In May I started my 2.6 challenge where I cycled 2.6+ miles for 26 days come; rain, sun, hailstone or a combination of weather types! (Who knows what the weather will bring, it is Scotland we are talking about). Ha! 🙂 I achieved a total of 88.7 miles by the end of the challenge.
I went on to hosting a fortnightly facebook live quiz that would test peoples brain power and knowledge! 🙂 (This was a new way of fundraising). I have loved the response from my regulars! 🙂 Everyone is welcome! You don’t have to make a huge donation either; whether its £2.60 or £26, ever penny counts! It is a great laugh and there is always a prize up for grabs!
As if that wasn’t enough, I have recently launched a photo competition for children and adults to take part in! An activity that all of the family can enjoy during the summer holidays. 🙂 As the lockdown restrictions are starting to ease up there is a better opportunity for us to get our doors and snap some photos! You don’t need a professional camera, grab that mobile, get the trainers on and go and adventure out there! (Don’t go too wild though remember your social distancing measures) 😉
So there is an adult entry and a child entry (Child age categories are follows: (4-7), (8-12) -(13-17).
As if taking part wasn’t enough there are indeed prizes to be won!
You can enter as many photos as you would like, however there is a cost per entry which you can view in the poster below. 🙂
Friends of Anchor are an absolutely amazing charity and I say this from a personal experience (which many of you know).
What the charity do: Friends of Anchor serve oncology and haematology patients across the North East of Scotland. They fund research to fight cancer, vital equipment to treat and diagnose cancer, and provide patient wellbeing and care on the anchor unit. They rely on amazing people like us to keep on fundraising and participating in fundraising events in order to keep on serving brave cancer patients. Unfortunately, the pandemic has left FOA unable to hold the events they had planned and subsequently this has had an impact on funds that could have been raised.
How to enter: All you have to do is email: firstname.lastname@example.org for your competition pack and I will reply with all the instructions and your very own reference code.
I really hope you get on board with this competition! We can do this together: Anchored together! ❤
Whatever will come next of my Friends of Anchor fundraising journey?! 😉
Watch this space…… 😉
