The End

Dear All

It has been decided to call it a day with "PL-ease".  The charity has run for two years and raised £3k through a number of activities.  We have had some great times along the way and won't forget the abseiling and treetop challenge in a hurry!

However, we are finding it hard to keep motivated when we haven't been able to identify a way to actually spend the money raised.

The trustees have agreed that money raised from the charity will be transferred to MillFord Special School PTA.  The school has been let down in recent years when a promised new build project was cancelled.  Money from PL-ease will go to the PTA to be spent helping to replace ageing equipment and facilities around the school.

I will continue to fundraise in the future, but all efforts will be directed to helping MillFord School, and ensuring that the children and staff have equipment and facilities that they deserve.

Anyway, many thanks for following this blog.  I will let you know when the money has been transferred and will keep you informed of future fundraising activities!

Take care, and many thanks for following.

Plymouth half-marathon

The Plymouth half-marathon takes place on 29th May 2011.  We are looking to put a team together to help raise additional funds for PL-ease.  If you would like to book a place in the team please e-mail admin@pl-ease.org.uk

If you raise more than £150 in sponsorship, we will pay for your entry fee.

We will be having a weekly run on Sundays, to cater for all abilities, gradually building up the distance to see us all sail around the 13.1 miles!

Please help support this charity, and help yourself to get fit at the same time!

Also note that the course is different to previous years! See http://www.plymouthhalfmarathon.co.uk/ for more details.
