2017 Just Giving Fund Raising
Following the earthquakes in 2015 and the launch of the appeal can was overwhelmed by support .......
In the immediate aftermath of the earthquake the plight of the Nepalese, many of whom had lost their homes leaving them without shelter of any kind, captured the hearts of many and 306 new fund raising pages were opened.
As a result of that support the amount raised in the year to 31 December 2015 - including the gift aid which could be reclaimed - was £504,449.32.
In the past, and on the old CAN website, we tried to support all Just Giving fund raisers by writing something on the site about the event as well as creating a link to the individual's Just Giving account and if permission is given to make the link through to Facebook as well.
So, watch this space for new names ........................
Iain Dredge - 2nd june
As a result of hearing Paul "Tut" Braithwaite speak on Thursday 16th February in Huddersfield on behalf of the local Mountain Rescue Team and CAN Iain decided he wanted to support CAN and has opened a page on the JustGiving website. The link to Iain's page can be found here: JustGiving
Iain has set himself the crazy challenge of undertaking The Crossing [a three day 198 mile crossing of England from Whitehaven to Scarborough on a mountain bike called The Rat Race], a Man versus Lake which is a run along a 26.2 mile trail from Silverdale across Morecambe Bay up to Windermere and, finally, the Man versus Mountain 20 mile trail running from Caernarfon to Llanberis taking in the summit of Snowden en route.
Please see image of Iain on his 2016 challenge below - watch out for him this year on 2 June - wearing one of CAN's special T-shirts - as he sets off from Whitehaven at the start of The Rat Race.
Jill dobbie - 1st april
Jill wants to raise funds for CAN and has titled her JustGiving page "A Month of Yoga Practice for Langtang" and she intends to practice sun salutations every day throughout the month of April building up to practicing 108 in one day. Jill says this is a "tapas" or fiery self-discipline in yoga as each sun salutation consists of 24 postures that flow into each other.
Friends are planning to support Jill who was trekking in the Langtang Valley in November 2016.
