Not one but two intrepid fundraisers!
Tracey's Charity Chop!
Wednesday 22 September, Tracey faced the scissors for NFDIS
see the results below!
it is not too late to sponsor.
Every £1 helps!
I have decided to cut off my long hair to raise funds for New Forest Disability Information Service.
I first became aware of NFDIS years ago when they helped us apply for a grant to adapt our home for our disabled Daughter. 15 years later and I’m proud to say that I now work for this amazing organisation. Every day I witness the difference we can make to other people’s lives, whether it’s assisting with equipment, benefits, signposting local groups/ organisations, or even just being that listening ear that a person needs. We have a foundation of many devoted and knowledgeable volunteers but we cannot continue without funds so please donate to help us support many more people in the New Forest.
please visit our Virginmoneygiving site via this link to sponsor Tracey
- every £1 raised by Tracey will help us to continue to help approx 2,000 people a year
getting ready going - going gone!
Sponsorship raised so far £650!
Please use the above link if you wish to help Tracey reach an even larger amount.
Thank you from everyone at NFDIS!
Mark Parker is walking the Cape Wrath trail
this is what he says:
On 14 September I will begin walking the Cape Wrath Trail, one of the world's finest long distance walks.
The route crosses the north west of Scotland from Fort William to Cape Wrath through the beautiful glens
and mountains of Morar, Knoydart,
Torridon and Assynt.
There is no fixed route, but the total distance is about 370km, and the walk takes two to three weeks.
Each 1p sponsored per kilometer will raise £3.70 for the New Forest Disability Information Service.
please visit Mark's Virginmoneygiving site via this link to sponsor him
- every £1 raised by Mark will help us to continue to help approx 2,000 people a yearthank you.

update: Saturday 25 September - unfortunately my walking companion got infected blisters
on his feet and the medics have told him not to walk in boots for a month......
We managed 120km, as far as Glen Shiel, but had to postpone the rest of the trail
until May next year.
See below some of the photos of the parts we did complete!
Thanks to all the sponsors and donors - we will definitely finish the trail!
