Well I blame the weather – it has been very damp – but I only managed eight hours in week 1 of my Give As You Live “fundraise from home” challenge. A bit of a failure for me but a win for Children of Colombia as I have put £10 in the pot: £5 for each hour below target. But that’s probably what I saved on fuel over the week so not a great sacrifice and it will help the kids get through the Covid-19 crisis in Colombia.
Did you know that HMRC will increase donations from UK taxpayers who add Gift Aid by a massive 25% with no added cost to themselves?
And you can raise more free funds for Children of Colombia every time you shop online simply by registering with Give As You Live. Leading supermarkets, travel companies and lots of big name High Street stores will donate a percentage of your spend with every transaction. Such a painless and effective way to keep those donations coming in.
Well here’s to the start of Week 2 – and looking forward to some more walks in the lovely Gloucestershire countryside in the autumn sunshine (hopefully!). Here are some pictures of my walk around the ancient Rollright Stones.
