Charity Selections TO FINALISE!

Postby Woolly » Sat Apr 25, 2015 4:19 pm

Hi all



Through a combination of procrastination and other things that get in the way, we need to finalise / donate the money built up in the charity account which equates to £673.20.

We, the committee have agreed to do 2 things .............



[b]1. By vote the top charities from the list below that have been mentioned to us previously.[/b]

We would like to ensure that a mountain rescue benefits as we have always donated year on year to one for our fell league and off road adventures!

Some of these are national charities needing no explanation and some more local / requested personally from members.

* Edale Mountain Rescue

* Treetops

* Guide Dogs

* Royal National Institute for the Blind RNIB

* Maggies Centres - Support and caring for cancer patients and family

* Martin Jackman Centre - Caring for adults with learning difficulties, local in Aspley

* Lyme Disease org.uk - preventing & treatment advice support for this tick borne disease



[b]2.[/b] New for 2015, we have agreed as a committee to offer a [b]Marathon Charity Donation Draw of £50 for 2 members[/b] who are either have a charity place in the London Marathon or are raising donations for a charity for April marathons. Names to Rachel Argent for the draw to be conducted on 28th April at the club social night. The winners would then donate to their chosen cause.



All votes communicated forum, facebook or private message.

To finalise for the end of the month as start a fresh for 2015.

Cheers all
Rachel Argent, Club Secretary

I very much like the draw for the Marathon runners, a great idea. For the other charities i personally think we would should support smaller ones, where we can make a difference, and local if possible. We should also consider charities who may be of use to us as runners. So that is most of them if not all, an excellent selection.

Can i suggest that we have a fixed number that we can nominate for fairness, either 2 or 3, depending how many we are going to donate to?



I would go for

1. Edale Rescue

2. Maggies Centre

3. Lyme disease.

Yes would suggest top 3 at the most depending on votes / response to secure almost 200 for each charity



Will collate and feedback results to committee

I love the idea of the draw - it is a really good way of doing it, and putting a bit behind those who have chosen a cause to raise money for.



As for local, I'm not sure how you define it. The one in 'Aspley'? I've never heard of the place!



Anyway my vote is for Guide Dogs.

Get your Notts A-Z out Ant! Once you've regained your breath. Great run today, and the way you strode out for the run in, you must have known that the cameras were on you.



Regarding the charity donations. All suggestions are good ones. For no particular personal reason, my top three choices are: Edale MR, Royal British Legion & Cancer Research.

I just realised in future Parkrun should be on the list! It is after all a charity, and although I don't take part in it, think what they do is awesome!

That's a great donation to 3 very good causes.
