Good Luck Team! / BG Energy Challenge 2012

Hey everyone, thanks for visiting today! :)

In about 8 days time, my former work colleagues will be putting their paces through the two-day event that is the BG Energy Challenge UK 2012.

The event takes place between 5th - 7th July 2012 in Dartmoor and tests the mental, physical and strategical minds of all the participants taking part in the demanding and action packed two days the event undertakes.

My former work colleagues at the EI in London are taking part this year and is made up of 6 team members who will undergo various challenges in order to complete the two day competition. Why are they doing this? Well it's because all the money goes to CHARITY, and not just ONE, but TWO! The charities are: Sparks and CARE International.

CARE International is a leading development and aid agnecy working in 87 countries providing change and help in poor communities, as well as finding routes for those who live in extreme poverty. Sparks is a Children's medical research chairty who help fund research into childhood diseases such as Cerebral Palsy, Spina Bifida, Cancer, Arthritis, Meningitis and many other diseases.

The team have raised 4/5 of their £5000 target, but need that extra push to get to their target and hit it! So please, if you can PLEASE DONATE and help the Team get to their £5000 target. You can DONATE via this link - Virgin Money Giving / EI BG Energy Challenge - any donation even if it's £5, £1 or £10 would be so much appreciated. The team have worked hard in training, as well as organising fundraising events and all while working full time too! So, please do donate where you can, and if you can please add Gift Aid too!

Here's a card below to CHEER and support the EI Team for all their hard work! (Tiny bit girly for the mostly, all-male team, but hey, it's all in the spirit of support!)

HUGE GOOD LUCK to the EI Team - Erica, Andy, Mark, Gareth, Terry and Michael for taking part in the BG Challenge all for Charity! You guys ROCK!

Thank you all for reading this post! Please donate if you can and join me in supporting the team! :) - Mel xx
