We’ve been overwhelmed by the amount of people who have supported us during the first half of the year, especially during this period of lockdown. We just wanted to take a moment to thank each and every one of you who have gone out of your way to raise funds for Hector’s House, and in lots of unique and imaginative ways.
Luke started off the year abstaining from alcohol for Dry January and raised £635 in the process. Well done Luke!
Our 2.6 Challengers
We had lots of people rise to the 2.6 Challenge. Thank you!
Here are a few of them.
Sandra’s challenge of climbing the stairs 2.6 times was a huge undertaking having a fracture in her hip and an injured knee, plus osteoporosis and osteoarthritis. Sandra raised a fantastic £386. Thank you Sandra, we hope you’re taking it easy now.
Annabel Francis held a 2.6 hour yogathon. She live-streamed her yoga flow session and encouraged people to join along with her. She raised an amazing £609.
Louise and Anna from Equipp set their families the 2.6 challenge, undertaking lots of different challenges along the way including; push-ups, climbing the stairs and running 26K! They’ve raised £270, and they’re also supporting us through the sales they make through Equipp.Thank you!
Alice Benson raised a fantastic £601 running 70 miles in 7 days! Wow, what an absolute effort, and she was still smiling at the end of it.
Ellie and Kieran trained for and ran a 10K in June. They raised over £1,000, as they wanted to do something constructive whilst in lockdown, so we really appreciate them choosing to support Hector’s House.
Lucy Williamson launched her fantastic new online Gut Café, and her first session, Good Foods Better Moods was all about eating to improve your mood. Her ticket costs were kindly donated to Hector’s House and she raised £115 – thank you Lucy!
Hemel school held a number of fundraisers for Hector’s House as their charity of the year, and they raised an astonishing £825.82 to help stop suicide and the stigma surrounding mental health.
We were so humbled when Wendover Rotary chose Hector’s House as their Charity of The Year 2019-2020 – fundraising for us throughout the year with a number of delightful events like their eco-sleigh collection with star guest Santa making an appearance! They raised a fantastic £3,500 for our cause, which will make the biggest difference to the support and signposting we can offer people in need.
If you’ve donated by giving a one-off gift, or if you are one of our regular donors, thank you to you too. We are so humbled to everyone who supports us, and it truly means so much.
