On Sunday 30 June Sarah Walker cycled 60K in a Cycle Challenge Race at the Woburn Cycletta raising funds for FUN. Sarah completed the course in 3 hours 16 minutes (with three stops along the way).
Victoria Pendleton started the cycle race and there were over 700 ladies participating in 3 different races. The weather was amazing and the scenery in Woburn and the surrounding villages was beautiful.
Most importantly Sarah raised £470 for FUN. She might do it again sometime, but only if her legs have recovered!
Judith and Malcolm Day (Members of FUN) arranged a day for friends and family to come together to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary. They asked for donations to FUN instead of receiving presents and gifts.
It was a great day out for all that attended, with bouncy castles and entertainer for the children, which gave the adults time to chat, catch up and enjoy the July sunshine.
Judith and Malcolm raised an impressive £387.28.
Well done and thank you.
Julia Higgins (Member of Families United Network & The Board) held a fundraising Curry Night at Miraj in Luton on 24 June 2013.
It was a full house at the Miraj with no spare seats, and with friends and family. Everyone that attended had a great time, great food, great company raising funds for a great charity.
The evening raised an impressive £455 through ticket and raffle sales.
Well done Julia.
