We recently did a stall at The East Town Pirates ‘Pirate Day’ event, on the 30th of August at The Steamboat Tavern. We sold our official merchandise which includes wristbands, badges, guitar picks and much more. We also had a few donations of items from the generous Shirley Boland who worked very hard at making some lovely jewellery to sell, with a range of Earrings, Bracelets and Necklaces so a big thank you for all your contribution. Thanks to many generous friends and fans, we managed to raise £141 for our foundation! A big thank you if you popped down and purchased anything!
On the same day, Abby Jarvis and Martyn Stimpson took part in the summer frenzy that is ‘The Ice Bucket Challenge’ and instead of donating to the lead cause, chose to donate to us instead. So a big thank you to you too Abby and Martyn it was much appreciated!
As we spoke about in our previous post. Two wonderful lads, Richard Chapman and Tony Stollery, decided to raise money for our foundation by undertaking an 100k bike ride on the 30th of August. They completed the gruelling challenge in an amazing 4 hours and 37 minutes. With all 100 KM’s covered with no wrong turns or punctures!!! Rest up those sore legs and bums guys and enjoy a day of no training! The guys raised a whopping £581.50. A big well done and a huge thank you from all of us at Krissy & Friends!
Hi all….. Well it’s time to let you know what’s going on. We have been approached by 2 wonderful lads who would like to raise money for our foundation, Richard Chapman and Tony Stollery. Please read on to know the adventure they’re attempting to undertake.
The two fitness boys are training to undertake a 100k bike ride next week to raise money for our foundation. Sean Smith-Reeve is supporting them by collecting donations. We all hope your mad training sessions to get fit are going well. There are only 8 sleeps till the actual event!
As quoted from one of the lads, “This year I’ve been trying hard to get out on my bike and put in the miles. Although I enjoy the cycling it has also all been with the aim of raising money for charity. My father in law had a smart idea a few months ago of getting me to do the 100km ‘crafted classic sportive’ ride on 30 August this year setting off from Ipswich marina. At that point the furthest I’d managed was 51km. Since then I have upped that to doing 67km in one ride so I still have some way to go in the next month but I will be doing everything I can to complete all the 100km. Compared to the distances some people can achieve on a bike I realise this will be small fry but we all have to start somewhere and for me this will be a major achievement”.
WOW, we can’t thank you enough… Keep us updated with your training guys so we can keep everyone in the loop. (Though not too much detail if you’re saddle sore!).
Many thanks to Suffolk New Academy who held a non-uniform day in their last week of term. All the money raised has been donated to our foundation. They did an amazing job and have handed us a cheque for £410… WOW!!! We can’t thank all the staff and students enough who took part. From all the trustees, a big thanks! xox
Hello everyone. This is the first blog/news post. This is just the start of many exciting things.
Well, the BIG annual first event has now finished, the money has been collected, counted and put into the bank. The tables have been cleared, left over cakes eaten, Fanny’s hair has been swept away and we hope everyone involved in organising and running the event have had some time to recover! So, I guess you all want to know how much we raised?! Well a massive thank you to EVERYONE for their kind generosity as the final total was a whopping £1,390.80. This amount does not include the incredible amount raised by Fanny alone. Fanny’s event raised £918.00 and he is still collecting!! We thought we were being silly hoping we could raise £1,500, well… With your support we reached this target and beyond. So from all the trustees, a big huge THANK YOU! xox
