It gives me great pleasure to report again on the activity of the UK branch of the ASF. Contributions during the year totalled £15,538.
Although, for those in the UK we’ve just watched the latest London Marathon, last year we had Rob Boyd running for the Fund, and doing great! He doesn’t want people to know that he finished in fine form in nearly 3 hrs 45mins – and in doing so has raised over £1,600 (over R22,000 in SA currency)! Many thanks for that sweat and training.
Another keen lady ready to sweat for the Fund is my daughter, Miquela, whom I accompanied around the Paddock Wood Half Marathon. I won’t give her time, but she raised about £2.5 per mile, a total of over £500.
I would like to thank the staff and parents and children at the Moss Hey School in Stockport for their support for the Fund during the Carol Service over the Christmas period. I am always amazed at the extent of support for the work of the ASF across Britain, often encouraged through someone who has links, or who has had links in the past, with the team in the Rondebosch office.
Many thanks, once again, for those who have given both financial and verbal support to the work of the Fund, and we look forward to your continued support.
