MacMillian Charity – 72 Holes Longest Golf Day

Another year has passed and we are soon to do our annual charity fundraising day. For those who do not know, we raise money for Macmillan every June by completing 72 holes of golf at Three Rivers Golf Club, South Woodham Ferrers.

It sounds fairly easy but an early start of 5am and an expected finish time of around 9pm totalling a distance of more than 15 miles does catch up on you.

We would really appreciate a kind donation of your choice as we look to surpass our record amount raised which was achieved last year at £1135.00

Below is the link to submit your donation.

We hope to see the numbers fly up for a great charity!

CALA NHC – Running for Samaritans  

The work Samaritans do is more crucial at the moment whilst we are in ‘Lockdown 3.0’. Many people are feeling isolated this year due to social distancing and travel restrictions. They may have lost a loved one to coronavirus or feel anxious about the current circumstances. Samaritans provide a 24-hour helpline, 365 days a year, to lend an ear to those who feel they have nowhere else to turn. To visit their donation page click here.

Scott Dunbar – London Marathon April 2020

In the summer of last year one of my good friends Michael aged 37, passed away after being diagnosed with Bowel Cancer less than a year before which was absolutely devastating, leaving behind his wife Hannah and his 3-year-old son Arthur.

Michael was a great bloke who lived life to the full, loved keeping fit and had a passion for running. On several occasions, he applied for the London Marathon but was never successful.

In his memory and to raise awareness and money for this great cause, I decided to apply for the London Marathon along with 4 other good friends and his wife Hannah.

Before applying, I can’t remember the last time I have ran more than 5k, so the thought of 26.2 miles was a daunting challenge. Training hasn’t exactly gone to plan as I got a stress fracture on my foot before Christmas. With only 12 weeks I am back training but now need to start getting some miles under my belt.

Any help to achieve our combined team target of 15k, and words of encouragement when you see me would be greatly appreciated.
