Sky-diving and cycling fund-raising

Every year at Majestic our staff choose a charity which we support with all our fund raising activities. Last year we raised over £60,000 for the Multiple Sclerosis Society, and obviously each year we hope to beat the previous year.

This year our staff have chosen to support the Alzheimer’s Society, and Owen Wynne-Jones, manager of our Chelmsford store, is really going for it. He’s taking part in a sponsored sky dive as well as in the London to Paris cycle ride and he has this appeal:

“Hello everybody,

You may or may not be lucky enough to know me, but I’d like your help and support nonetheless.

I’m taking part in the London to Paris Cycle Ride on 03/09/2008 to raise money for Alzheimer’s Society and I would really welcome your support.

I will be riding around 80 miles a day on 3 consecutive days, and as a novice cyclist, I can assure you that it won’t be easy! I have been out cycling yesterday and I cycled 9 miles in 45 minutes (in the wind). Doing some rough calculations on those times, I can look forward to being on the saddle for around 6-7hrs a day on the ride!

Please take a moment to sponsor me. It’s really easy and can be done through the Justgiving.com website. You can find my personal donation page here (you should see a picture of a happy looking individual enjoying a drink). You can donate online by credit or debit card.

All donations are secure and sent electronically to Alzheimer’s Society. If you are a UK taxpayer, Justgiving will automatically reclaim 28% Gift Aid on your behalf, so your donation is worth even more. If you have any friends and family that you think might be interested in sponsoring me, could you please forward my just giving details to them.
