Charity update: The year ahead

alderhey2016 saw us run, jump and bake our way through the year. From ‘The Great Salary Exchange Bake Off’ to our Gung-ho team everyone one of us took part in the fundraising and made a fantastic effort towards our final total. We finished the year off by raising a massive £4,633 for various charities and blew our original target out of the water.

Most of you will have no doubt been a part of our effort and we couldn’t thank you enough for your generosity. However 2017 is a new year and with that comes new fundraising and new challenges.

We’re excited to announce that this year we’ll be raising funds for Alder Hey’s Children’s Hospital in Liverpool. We’ll be doing our best all year round to raise as much as we can for this great cause, starting with:

April
To start the year off we have a small team entering the Whitchurch (Shropshire) 10k run, an event starting and finishing at the Sir John Talbot School.

July
Our second challenge this year will see a dozen of us doing our best red rum impressions around Aintree Racecourse. We’ll be participating in the Color Obstacle 5K course. A run littered with 20 obstacles and 8 colour stations just to ensure we don’t get a clean getaway.

September
Our third challenge this year will see us take on our biggest obstacle yet. We’ll be competing in Velo Birmingham. An unforgettable 100 mile bike ride through the picturesque Worcestershire and Herefordshire countryside.

Meet the teams
In the next few weeks we’ll be showing off our team members. Blogs and updates will feature on the individuals who have opted in to be a part of our teams. You’ll be able to see where any donations are going to and learn a little about each of us.

As well as the headline events we’ll be busy baking, dressing up and more than likely eating our way through another year. Keep your eyes on our social media sites for updates on all of our fundraising efforts throughout 2017.
