Fund Raising Event
An extract from Simon Jackson’s letter to Sherwood Forest R.C. We as a Club shall be helping by placing collection boxes in shops in and around Ollerton so we are hoping everyone will support Simon Jackson as he tries to raise as much money as he can for our Charities.
“My name is Simon Jackson and I am a local fireman living in Ollerton. Over the past few years I have undertaken a few personal challenges to raise money for local charities.
In 2013 I undertook the London to Brighton challenge which is a 100km (63 miles approx) event for the Dukeries Community Workshop.
In 2014 I took on the Grand Union Canal Challenge , another 100km event, for the Pet Shop Girls.
This year I have entered the Mizuno Endure 24 endurance challenge with a couple of fellow fireman and would like to donate any money raised to the Rotary Club of Sherwood Forest
This is a 24 hour race run over a 5 mile loop of forest trails in the Wasing Park Estate near Reading, starting at 12pm on Saturday 13th of June and finishing on Sunday 14th. Our aim is to take on the course wearing FireKit and carrying Breathing Apparatus. This kit increases our body weight by just over 2 stones.
I will not have time to submit a piece for the Roundabout or Sherwood Life in time for the April edition but I will draft one for the May and June editions.
I generally approach friends and family for fundraising and place collection tins in local shops with some success. I had thought about approaching local businesses but am unsure of the best way to do this.”
