Six months down and six weeks to go
It’s a huge understatement to say it’s been a hectic six months since the start of the CG 100. Our fantastic fundraisers have come up with so many weird, wonderful and downright wacky ways of raising money that we have extended the campaign deadline, and the great news is the CG 100 will be running right up until Christmas!
We’re thrilled to say that we’re only £5000 away from reaching our £50,000 target. An amazing achievement by each and everyone one of you who has hosted an event, bought a ticket, donated a prize or given your time to the CG 100, we couldn’t do it without you.
Between now and Christmas we’re pulling out all the stops to raise the final £5,000 to get to our £50,000 target. Over the next few weeks we’ll have some terrific Christmas themed ideas everyone can get involved in, so keep up with the campaign on social media and at the CG 100 website.
Our Chief Executive, Lucy, was delighted to hear all your CG 100 news as she’s been travelling the country over the last few months attending team meetings. “It’s been truly inspiring to hear all about your fundraising event and ideas and how positive everyone has been about the CG 100. It’s wonderful that so many people have taken the campaign to their hearts.”
And we know that you’re not done fundraising yet, with many of you having events planned well into 2018! Early in 2018 is also when we’ll be launching our new fundraising campaign, so if you’ve a fundraising idea for 2018 share it with us and we’ll share it with everyone else.
Every penny raised for the CG 100 goes towards tackling social isolation and loneliness, a problem which becomes even more acute for many people as Christmas approaches. It’d be a huge achievement if we could raise £5,000 by Christmas, so check out our terrific fundraising ideas over the next few weeks and share the campaign with friends to help us get over the line.
