Fundraising is never easy nowadays, so many people are doing great things, each with their own story and weblink to make sponsoring easy; yet as friends, families and work colleagues we rarely get around to actually clicking through and making the effort. It’s a real shame, but an accepted reality. Does that stop us trying? Of course not, so please don’t give up on this article just yet!
On April 8th my son, Ben, and I will be joining other Saracens supporters on a sponsored walk from Saracens’ Allianz Park to Wembley for the derby match between Saracens and Harlequins, raising money for the ‘Tackling Cancer Together’ campaign which is all about tackling the impact that cancer can have on patients and their families at University College Hospital.
Now I know there are, sometimes justified, cynics out there that see this sort of fundraising as an excuse to get sponsorship for something you were going to do anyway, but hopefully by sacrificing our more luxurious routine and putting a bit of effort in to think about others by walking, rather than train or driving, others will spare the time to show their appreciation for our effort by sponsoring us. There is no personal gain for Ben or I, we still pay for tickets to the match and we will join the queues to get the train home in the evening after the game.
