Congratulations to Jacky Leonard who did the Wye Valley Challenge in support of MDS UK Patient Support Group!
Here are some photos of the beautiful scenery and an exhausted Jacky home after the Wye Valley Challenge on 11th-12th August. Jacky said:
It all went very well. Fabulous scenery and perfect weather for walking. Here's a selfie of a very tired me when I got home after the event, with a finishers medal between my teeth!
Jacky says in her Virgin Money Giving Page:
Anyone who's met me will know I'm up for a challenge and keen to make a difference. This event gives me an opportunity to do both.
Cancer is a horrible disease. It strikes indiscriminately, often with tragic results. Perhaps you know someone who has been affected. I can't imagine the mental and physical strength it takes to fight a diagnosis. Thankfully, there are a number of wonderful charities, doing essential research and supporting those affected by cancer.
This year, I have chosen to fund raise for MDS UK. It's a small charity, doing vital work supportung people with bone marrow failure #MDSBloodCancer. Sadly, a friend has just been diagnosed and I need your help to raise as much money as possible to help MDS UK continue their essential work. Please donate whatever you can afford...remember every little helps.
I'll be doing other fundraising activities too. So, as well as getting a warm glow from giving, you'll have an opportunity to win some stuff in exchange for your donation. Thanks in advance.
We are incredibly grateful to Jacky and all her friends and sponsors for their support.
Thanks to you we are able to support MDS Patients and their love ones at those critical moments when anxiety strikes.
We provide a 1-2-1 helpline opened 5 days a week, organise local meetings and maintain an updated website and Facebook Group, among other activities. Thanks for making this possible.
