Your soaraway Shoot Up or Put Up’s charity of choice is the wonderful Pendsey Trust. The Pendsey Trust changes the lives of those living with type one diabetes in developing countries by providing access to education for those affected by diabetes in developing countries with the aim that this will enable these people to enter employment and afford the medical care they need.
The Roman Rumble
In June 2013, Shoot Up’s Tim and his chum Stephan will be cycling across the country in four days dressed as Romans in an epic of charity fundraising. We’ve come up with our own route – an adaption of the C2C and Hadrian’s Wall cycle routes – which takes in most of the Roman sites in the north of England. This is where our slightly dodgy Roman theme comes from!
Day 1 – Tynemouth to Corbridge
Day 2 – Corbridge to Brampton
Day 3 – Brampton to Keswick
Day 4 – Keswick to Ravenglass
The Pendsey Trust is a tiny, new charity run by four friends in their spare time. As a result their overheads are virtually none and so your donation – no matter how small – will go directly to make a massive difference; for example
- Â£40 sends a diabetic child to school for a year
- Â£70 buys a diabetic woman a sewing machine and the hope of a sustainable future
- Â£200 covers the medical costs of a child with diabetes for a year
So crack out the credit card and chuck a few coins to the Trust via our donation page at http://www.charitygiving.co.uk/roman_rumble.
