On Monday 26th and Tuesday 27th October, during Lupus Awareness month, myself and a fabulous team of staff and students at Derby University walked four miles (I did the walk both days so I did 8 miles!). Those of you that follow me on Twitter (@blogguin) or who know me personally, will be well informed that I recently arranged a 4 mile charity walk to raise money for Lupus UK. We walked to each university campus and halls of residence.
Lupus UK are very deserving of donations as they have been my absolute go to source for information on Lupus. They also inspired me to stay positive by writing this blog, as they published my own blog article to their website.
I’m very proud to announce that my team and I have raised £538.99 for Lupus UK, which is absolutely amazing & unexpected! (Donations are now closed – thanks to those who supported us)
I would like to personally thank; Lisa, Ash, Pom, Amy, Andy, Niamh, Daisy, Bronwyn and Ellie. Thank you for your time, thank you for your support and thank you for raising money for such an great cause. Special thank you for putting up with me, also.
Shout out to Amy, who couldn’t do the walk due to working but who donated and bought cakes and made us tea for when we finished the walk!
The people listed above are fellow Derby University students, work colleagues and friends of mine. I’ve never had such a brilliant support network before, I feel like I’m the luckiest lady ever! I feel a little more human for your help, thank you!
I’ve put the photos on from the walk.
thank you for your support, xo.
