This year (like the last four years), I will be running the Manchester 10k on Sunday 19th May to help raise funds for both:
Both charities are well known to, and have been actively supported by, St Mary’s Church for many years.
Over the last three years and with the very generous support of the congregation of St Mary’s, matched (1:1) by the company I work for, Hilti (Gt Britain) Ltd., we have raised close to £7,000 for Oasis. This year we will also be raising money for the Christie Hospital, our world-leading Cancer Hospital in Manchester
We will split any money raised 50:50 between both charities and once again, Hilti will match any fundraising that we raise so anything you can give will effectively be doubled when Oasis / Christie receive it (plus a further 25% from the government if you can Gift Aid it. Please ‘tick’ the box of your preference, or both if you are happy for your donation to be split equally. We also have a Just Giving page for those who prefer to donate electronically:
The donations passed on to Oasis have helped to put them in the position to commence a major building project later this year to provide them with long overdue permanent facilities.
The Christie have recently invested substantially in new world leading technology to keep them at the forefront of Cancer research and treatment.
This year, I am looking forward to the running with two of my children, Katherine & Mark which make it even more special for me.
Thank you in advance for anything that you can give – please complete the envelope and put it into the box, I will do the rest and let you all know how it went!
