Bill writes: I apologise if this goes against the grain for you but I am taking part in the Blenheim Palace Team Triathlon with my younger brother and sister on 5th June. My sister Kathy will be doing the 750m swim; I will be doing the 20km bike ride and Ian will finish with a 5km run.
Yes its only two weeks away (training going well) and I am asking if you would consider helping us raise money for Arthritis Research UK, a charity close to home.
We took part in the same event last year as ‘Three Shades of Gray’ as some of you will have been aware and raised an unbelievable £10,000 for Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research totally due to the generosity of our sponsors. This year we are taking part as Three More Shades of Gray!
I realise that everyone is bombarded these days with requests for sponsorship but if you don’t ask, you don’t get!!
If you could take the time to visit our sponsorship page that would be fantastic.
The page is : https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Three-More-Shades-of-Gray If you just click the link it should direct you to the page.
If you felt that you would like to sponsor us, that would be even more fantastic but we quite understand if you don’t wish to.
If you decide to sponsor us, please remember to tick the Gift Aid box as that will boost the money going to the charity.
Thank you so much for even reading this email and considering our cause.”
