£750 Raised for Red Cross New Zealand Earthquake Fund - Massive thanks to everyone!


A couple of weeks have passed, and after our initial donation from our generous sponsors we have just added another £120 after a very successful cake sale at St Michaels church in Macclesfield playgroup last Thursday. So in total we've managed to attract £750 of support, way beyond our wildest expectations.

The run was held in Warrington, grandparent to the rescue to look after Amy, whilst Kathryn and I had a very enjoyable 6.3 mile (OK it was nearly 7 but don't tell Kathy!) in perfect cool sunny conditions.

We've posted regular news on the Rise Up Christchurch Facebook Group which clearly had an uplifting impact on a lot of people over there. We received well wishes from Kiwis around the globe. So not only did we raise a lot of money but lifted spirits too.

So thanks once again, wonderful friends, colleagues and people we didn't even know from far flung places around the globe. You are great!

Paul and Kathryn
