Why your donations matter

Posted by on 29/07/2014

This is the last post, so please read it and then I’ll leave you alone!  THANKYOU – for one final time, cheers for all your kind donations, the money will be put to great use by the two charities – please see the links below which show why your donations matter.

Speaking of ‘the last post’, as we remember the 100 year anniversary of World War One, I saw a documentary on Sky Sports yesterday about the Christmas Truce of 1914 where the German and Allied soldiers on the Western Front stopped fighting to play football together in no man’s land – what an incredible story and an amazing example of how sport has the power to unite people even in the most difficult of circumstances.  And that’s what both Laureus Sport For Good Foundation and the WFC CSE Trust are all about, as their recent/current activities prove…

-> Laureus in London

-> WFC CSE Trust Project Watford

-> Laureus in Mumbai

-> WFC CSE Trust Summer Holiday Courses

-> Another Laureus fundraiser

-> WFC CSE Trust London to Amsterdam bike rideI’m doing this on Friday and Saturday (then cycling back on my own Sunday and Monday)!

PS. I did a Cyclebeat spin class this morning and despite the last 8 weeks of boozing/partying/scoffing average food, I set a new personal best for average power across the 45 mins, so it’s good to know my fitness gained during the #SambaCycle is still there!

PPS. Could some of Brazil’s World Cup stadiums be converted for affordable housing?!  Unlikely, but it will be interesting to see what happens with usage of all the stadiums.

PPPS. Tchau todos!
