Christmas 2012, I signed Chris up ( my better half ) for a charity trek to Nepal for his Christmas present. I wanted Chris to go on an adventure like I had after my treatment, when I toddled off to climb 3 volcanoes in Italy to support The Yorkshire Cancer centre.
the time has flown by fast and in 7 weeks Chris will be getting on a plane to go to Nepal for his adventure to begin!
Our friend Steve signed up to go with Chris and between them their fundraising has been truly amazing, I'm so proud of them and just love the fact that our cancer experience just turns more and more positive every year ( and fingers and eyes crossed it stays that way! )
They have raised a massive £14,592,
which is incredible.
My fundraising efforts to support them, selling christmas cards and the Ruby Throat screen print
( details of how it came about here ) has gone really well and I have half a dozen prints left so if you're interested in supporting you can buy one in my Etsy and Folksy shops.
And to those who have bought my prints & cards, thank you so much, your support is truly appreciated and it fair warms the cockles of my heart at how fab and supportive everyone is.
I'm itching to sign up to do another trek myself and to start fundraising again, I'm also helping Lily with her fundraising for Malawi when she goes in 2015 to help a community over there with school.
fab, happy days!
