Team Whiff – R5600 – thanks!
Well, as many of you know by now, every year I ride the Argus Cycle Tour to raise funds for the John Whiffen Trust. This year was no exception, and yes, this year I finished my third Argus. So my time was 4 minutes slower than last year, but hey, I finished!
But more important than my finishing the Argus is the fund-raising for the trust. I have just finished getting in the final figures, and Lois and I raised just over R5600 for the trust, which I am thrilled about!
So, to all of you that generously made donations for the fund raising dinner, both by being there, and by donating prizes, thanks a ton – without you we would not have been able to do this.
The John Whiffen Trust provides funds to allow for physically and mentally disabled people to get communication and leadership training. If you want to find out more about the trust, or about the people that it supports, please visit their web site.
See you on the road next year.
PS: This includes a last minutes cross-channel donation of 10 pounds (R140) put into the box from me on behalf of Stephen, and in return he is putting 10 pounds into his box on my behalf!
FYI: He is running the London marathon to raise funds for cancer research. If you want to help out – here is the link.
