Well Read 2011

Well Read 2011

I’ve done music and running related fundraising before and now its the turn of another great love of mine – books!

There is All Booked Up where the idea is to raise funds for two charities – Beating Bowel Cancer and Kidney Research UK – by auctioning off various signed or unique items donated by authors via EBay.

Myself and my daughter can be sponsored to read books with all funds going to Surrey Young Carers. Like the sponsored reads we used to do at school. It can be per book; a set amount or you can sponsor us to read a book of your choice.

£59 raised to date – many thanks 🙂
