HI Guys,

I hope you are all well.

I'm taking part in the London to Eastbourne (drive in my 101) on 14/11/2015 to raise money for The Royal British Legion and I'd really appreciate your support.

The drive is a symbolic gesture in appreciation of our troops and their families.

Donating to my JustGiving page is easy - just follow this link and click Donate: http://www.justgiving.com/owner-email/p ... arn-Wright

JustGiving sends your donation straight to The Royal British Legion so it’s a quick and safe way to donate.
:)
On the way to Beachy Head, on 14th November, I will stop at 3 locations to sell my home-made gluten free cakes (all proceeds will go to RBL). Finish line is in central London at the Poppy Appeal's Fundraising HQs near St Paul's Cathedral.

On 24th October you will be able to see my 101 on display at the kick off event for the Poppy Appeal in Bexleyheath/South East London.

I don’t expect raising £millions but every £ counts. Together, with your donations, we can help The Royal British Legion provide lifelong support for the Armed forces community – serving men and women, veterans, and their families.

Thanking you in advance for your donations.

Best wishes,

Carn

Ahh.. Townley Road, happy memories there, playing with Range Rovers at Townley Cross Country Motors.

Do you want another 101 to boost your numbers? or do you have limited space?

Wow I wish I posted this earlier. On reflection, it would have been great to have a regiment of 101s there.

How about trying to do something crazy for the drive down to Beachy Head on 14th November? Perhaps we could try to mobilise a mini contingent to drive down and return all the way up to St Paul's Cathedral in London. Dependent upon numbers, it could try to get the media involved in this. What do you think?

Great. My number is 07932727809.

The event in Bexleyheath is tomorrow. Just making sure.

Feel free to call me any time you like on Sunday. Should be free from 11:00 onwards (going for a run beforehand).

Best wishes,

Dear All, Great news!

We completed our challenge last Saturday after a good 8 hours of driving in torrential rain in Beachy Head and London!

Thanks to everyone’s support, we’ve exceeded our GBP1,000 goal - once offline donations are counted we will be at 115%. Our home made gluten free banana & chocolate cakes with vanilla mascarpone frosting also went down very well!

Some of our pictures are on the JustGiving site https://www.justgiving.com/Carn-Wright

I'll post some pictures on the forum as soon as I've figured out how to reduce the file sizes without loosing too much resolution.

Many thanks again to all who've donated,

Carn

Good evening,

I don’t think it goes down unless I do so. I’ll keep it up there for as long as I can. According to Just Giving, 20% of doners, donate post event. So, it’s best to keep the page up and running for a while.

I hope you enjoyed the pic of the 101.

Best wishes,

Carn
