Race For Life

Time to get serious for a moment.
The following is an email I’ve sent to pretty much everyone in my address book, but there are people out there who I don’t have current addresses for (Ceres, and JB, for starters), so I’m talking about it here as well.


Dear all,
On the 17th of July I will be participating in a five kilometer run to raise money for Cancer Research UK and I would really welcome your support.

Please take a moment to sponsor me: all you have to do is go to http://www.raceforlifesponsorme.org/brightmeadow and click the link.
All donations through this site are secure and sent electronically to Cancer Research UK. If you are a UK taxpayer, tick the ‘giftaid’ box, and an additional 28% will be added at no cost to you. That means if you donate £10, Cancer Research gets £12.80!

I am aware that a lot of you are students on a reduced budget, but every little helps, so please get out your credit or debit card, and join me in supporting Cancer Research UK – all money donated by you will go directly to help its scientists find new ways to prevent, treat, and cure cancer.

Once again, the site that you have to go to is:
Seeing as how it is online, all you non-UK people have no excuse!

Pass the link on to friends, family, anyone and everyone. The thought of being able to raise lots of money is the only thing stopping me from chickening out!


I am going to be doing the race in memory of my beloved Granddad, Gordon, my Aunt Helen, and Lily, all who died far too young from different forms of cancer. If there is anyone who you would like me to run in memory of, just let me know, and I would be honoured to.

Many thanks,
Claire Louise (Cas)
