Having seen all the horrid things in the news recently that the RNLI are rushing off to I decided to do what I could to help them raise funds. Unfortunately running a marathon will result in a £4,000 bill from the air ambulance (that's what it costs every time it takes off) and I'm too delicate to jump out of a plane so I'm doing a H20nly challenge. That's 10 days of only drinking Yorkshires finest tap water (don't worry: they do allow you to eat).
Now its neither heroic nor terribly embarrassing so I don't expect to raise much but I've decided it would be fun to try and raise enough money to clothe one RNLI crew person (£968.00)
My friends have jumped at the challenge and in only a few hours we had the £42.00 required to purchase some sea boots. Not much to cover his or her dignity but still at least their feet wont get wet!
If anyone wants to waste some time on the internet avoiding the ir*ning pile you can see my fundraising attempts here.... https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/nesmlearning
