It’s that time of year again that I like to raise awareness & money for a charity close to my heart – namely Macmillan Cancer Support. Nearly all of us know someone who has been affected by cancer and Macmillan play such an important part in helping people get through this difficult time in their lives.
So this year I will be Going Sober for October – that means, for the full 31 days of October, I’m going completely booze-free – not one single drop! Those who know me well know I may have a slight addiction to that post work glass of wine/pint and so I think it’s fair to say that this will be a bit of a challenge for me.
But Go Sober is much more than giving up alcohol for a month. It’s raising funds for Macmillan Cancer Support so that they can continue helping people living with cancer live life as fully as possibly.
I’d really appreciate any support you can give and any donation is a good donation. So if you have any pennies to spare I would be very grateful if you could head to my Go Sober Profile and send any spare change my way!
After signing up over half a year ago, Jessica and I got our first guide dog puppy to look after on Monday! Her name is Tutu and she is staying with us for 4 days.
She’s very energetic and still quiet excitable but mostly very well behaved.
Originally we wanted to board a puppy for a full year, but circumstances have changed for me since applying and I don’t think I have to time to commit full time and don’t want the work to all fall on my housemate Jessica. However I think we’ll definitely do holiday boarding, so when the puppies usual boarder is on holiday we can look after the pup for a few days.
We’ll see what happens. But it’s a lovely and rewarding experience taking part in this puppy’s life for a week.
It’s nearing the start of October which means it’s time for Sober October; a fundraising event for Macmillan charity. Macmillan is a charity close to my heart as I know many people who have been affected by cancer including family members and thus I know how important Macmillan nurses are in helping families affected by cancer get through such a difficult time. Each year I like to participate in one of their fundraising events to support them.
Four years ago I started supporting Macmillan by joining in on Sober October,
The year after I did their Brave The Shave event and raised about £200
Last year I totally forgot so this year I am joining in again with Sober October.
I would be very grateful for your support; if you could spare even only £1 that would be amazing as every little really does help! Here’s the link – Thanks guys!
