We ask you to tweet us pictures of your home improvement projects and give you the chance to win some great prizes in our monthly competitions. This time we’re asking for something a little different – and giving you the chance to make a real difference.
Our Director of Research, Chris Burke, will be cycling 1000 miles in 9 days to raise money for Scope this summer. The charity helps people with disabilities by providing ongoing support in the form of advice and everyday care. This advice can be anything from explaining the stages of a disability to providing a list of accessible leisure facilities for the disabled person to enjoy.
The charity works tirelessly to raise awareness of disability, change people’s attitudes and influence government policy but they’re reliant on the kindness of people like Chris and us to keep going!
Chris will begin his End2End ride on 31/08/13 starting at Land’s End and finishing up at John O’Groats. It’s going to be tough, so whether you have £1 or £50 to spare, please do dig deep and donate. Every donation is appreciated and will help him reach his £3500 target!
Donations are made quick and secure through JustGiving. Your details won’t be shared with a third party and you won’t receive any unwanted emails. They’ll send your money directly to the charity and reclaim gift aid on donations made by UK taxpayers.
Together we can make a difference!
