We've Done It!

When we decided as a team earlier this year to take on the Trailwalker Challenge in aid of Oxfam and The Gurkha Welfare Trust, we all agreed that we should set ourselves an equally challenging fundrasing target. "Let's aim for 10,000!", Andrew said. "Maybe not quite THAT challenging, Andrew", we said.

So, where do you start when you've 10,000 to raise? We told our clients and supporters all about the Challenge. "So what's involved?", they all enquiried.

"We're marching 100 kilometres in under 30 hours along the Gurkha Regiment's training route in the South Downs National Park. That's the same as walking from London to Southampton, or crossing the English Channel three times - non-stop!" "You're all mad....how do we sponsor you?" they said.

Within a month, we had secured the generous support of our corporate sponsors and had well and truly got our fundraising ball rolling.

Then came the fund raising events; we were absolutely delighted with the support we received at our charity quiz night in May; our sell-out night raised 1,700 towards our target; a great night as had by all (even the winners of the Wooden Spoon!)

The second of the events saw 15 teams sign up for a fantastic (and thankfully very sunny) day of golf at Wychwood Park in Cheshire, raising 2,100.

Since we launched our fundraising, we've also had the support of family, friends and even strangers, who have been touched by the cause and our commitment to raising funds for these two great causes.

So, it's absolutely fantastic to be able to say that, thanks to the enormous kindness and generosity of all our supporters, we have smashed our target - and still have another 4 weeks of fundraising to go.

On behalf of us all, and of course, Oxfam and The Gurkha Welfare Trust, please accept our sincere thanks and appreciation.

Now there's just the small matter of completing that walk...!
