This September I’m undertaking a new challenge and an old favourite to raise money for the great work of Macmillan.

We’ve all been affected by the affects at some point in our lives and The Macmillan organisation is fully dependent on charitable donations . Their nursing team provide amazing support in people's lives at a time of great distress .

My sister and I are running the Great North Run again on 9th September and then on 11th September we leave to do a four day trek in the Alps . We are climbing to 3,000 metres,  1,000 metres just short of Mont Blanc which is next door . I’m doing the climb with my sister , Frances, and fitness coach Jemma Wesson.

It should be an exhilarating challenge and we have pledged to raise £2,500. In order to raise this money I would be grateful if as many people as possible could come to a Coffee Morning selling cakes and books with a tombolas and raffle to be held in Great Ayton Village Hall on Saturday, 12th May from 10.00am - 2.00pm (the weekend after the May Day bank holiday).

I also have a Just Giving page that it is possible to donate on and gift aid at no extra expense -

Thankyou to the people of Great Ayton, in advance, you’re always incredibly supportive.

- Rachael would be greatly appreciative of any small raffle prize donations from local businesses please for her coffee morning. Please call Rachael on 01642 722866 and leave a message.
