Tom Winnifrith: less than 24 hours to Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks, £46,000 now raised a final appeal for £4,000 more

By Tom Winnifrith | Friday 24 May 2019


 


God willing, on Saturday at around 7.30 – 8 PM, 14 Rogue Bloggers & a trainer will complete the 33 miles from Horse Hill to Woodlarks. So in less than 24 hours time I shall be walking, somewhere along the Pilgrim’s Way.

The 14 rogues have now raised just over £46,000 so we are within sight of our revised £50,000 target. If you have donated I thank you, if you have not please do so HERE.

You may ask who are the rogue bloggers? There are the three who finished last year: myself,  Lucian Miers and Brokerman Dan plus mining boss Andrew Bell who did 18 miles in 2018 but will go the full distance this time. We are joined by Lucian’s 28 year old daughter Suzannah and her (female) friend Jamie Ungless. Then there is broker and health Nazi Andrew Monk, AIM mining boss Vassilios Carellas, ShareProphets readers Winston Smith & Jonathan Price ( plus Jonathan’s 18 year old son James). Young Steve Moore edits ShareProphets and at the other end of the age spectrum is 76 year old Fleet Street Legend Brian Basham who will be accompanied by his trainer. Finally the pizza Hardman Darren Atwater will roll along for the last ten miles.

And we may be joined by others for the last ten or six mile stretches so the finishing line will be crowded as – even if Mr Monk and fellow heath Nazi Suzannah Miers have to hang around near the end for ages, we will all finish together!

But it is not about us, this is about the amazing work Woodlarks does so if you have not sponsored us yet I beg you once again please do so. Every little bit helps. Last year Woodlarks survived on just £115,000 so if you can help us get from £46,000 to our £50,000 target that really will make a difference. Please donate HERE

Woodlarks is an amazing, but incredibly unfashionable, charity. If you give £10,000 to an organisation like Guide Dogs for the Blind or the RSPCA it makes no difference. Give £100 to Woodlarks and it will help change a life.

Last year we raised £26,000 (£32,000 with gift aid) for the Woodlarks Camp. It is an amazing charity which managed to get buy last year with total costs of just £115,000. But that meant NOT doing things it really should be doing. Our walk helped a lot but we want to help more.

I first got involved with the folks at Woodlarks more than 15 years ago thanks to an amazing man called Jamie. He had severe Cerebral Palsy, had been let down by his local council so we helped raise money to get him equipment allowing him to communicate. Jamie is sadly no longer with us but he loved Woodlarks. I will never forget playing chess with him there. Woodlarks provides a unique facility allowing severely handicapped folks a really special holiday they would otherwise go without.

It is not a fashionable charity but that is all the more reason to support it.

So please make a donation to the rogue bloggers for Woodlarks Charity walk today HERE

 

In advance I thank you
