Huge Favour

Postby Auntie Merge » Thu Dec 21, 2017 11:43 am

Over the years I've sponsored quite a few people on here and helped them raise money for good causes.

Please, now it's payback time.

I plan to undertake the cycle ride of my life in 2018 to help raise funds for the charity who supported me with cold hard cash when I needed it most. It won't be a charity that you've heard of or are likely to benefit from, but I hope the fact they helped me will be incentive enough.

I'm not asking for any large amounts; just £5 here and there will make all the difference.

Many thanks for whatever support you can give.

If we never heard of or benefit from this charity why would we donate to it ?

Because they helped and supported someone you know quite well with cold hard cash during the worst time of their life? I think my sponsorship page is clear about the help and support they gave me.

I'm sure there are lots of charities you'll be fortunate enough never to call on, it doesn't mean you never donate.

I'm not forcing anyone to donate if they don't wish to, but I know over the years I've helped and supported a lot of people in a variety of ways. If everyone who I ever helped with careers advice and encouragement, for instance, donated £5, then I would raise over £10,000.

Daggernewbie.... what a tosser you are!
Would you only give to a cancer charity if you had cancer?
Would you only run the santathon if you used St Francis hospice?
Sorry but you just sound like a total arsehole

I`ve sponsored lots of people over the years but I like to know what charity I`m donating too,but it`s what Suzanne wrote "It won't be a charity that you've heard of or are likely to benefit from " so why can`t we know what the charity is called ?

You can find out what the charity is called and why I am raising funds for them if you click the link in the post, like so many others today who have successfully and most generously donated.

25th May 2018.

I really must thank the Dagger fans who have already sponsored me, along with those who gave me sponsorship cash today.

It is so much appreciated; thank you.

I’ve also had a lot of sponsorship from fans of
Aldershot
Exeter
Guiseley
Hereford
Stevenage
Sutton
Tamworth
Wimbledon
York

I really am humbled. To have already raised over £1000 (inc gift aid) this early on is quite an achievement and I haven’t even tapped up my core sponsorship targets yet.

Merry Christmas. I love you all xxxxx

Ps for those who were asking. My training should kick off on Xmas morning (weather permitting) when i’ll be out on my fixie testing my dodgy knee. I still have tennis elbow and that should be fixed with an injection next week. I don’t yet have a bike with gears but I’m aiming to purchase a lovely geared touring bike that’s fit for purpose by the beginning of March when I start racking up the miles and practice climbing some steep inclines. Until then, it’s a mixture of the gym and my sweet fixie. The most I’ve ever cycled in a day is around 25 miles. For quite a few years every time I went out on my bike, even to cycle 2 miles, the migraine would cause me to throw up. I’ve only been cycling to the Daggers and home (around 14 miles round trip), on sunny warm days, so you can see that what I am proposing to do is a huge task.

Merry Christmas everyone. I did my first training ride this morning.
This is how it went.
