Weekly Roundup 3rd June
Hi all, it’s our weekly round-up post! As always, we want to say a huge thank you to everyone who is mentioned below, for those who have attended/supported and for everyone who has made a donation no matter what size. We appreciate you all ❤️💙
Check out our upcoming events to see what’s going on in the next week and beyond.
Last Sunday, young Liam Reay did a sponsored walk over 12 miles. He raised just over £584! Well done Liam!
Yesterday we had a Vale Park Music Festival up in Wallasey. Great music, lots of fun, and despite the poor weather it raised £438. A big thank you to Claire Sim and all who volunteered, plus Christopher Locke for organising the music and Ragamuffin and guests for performing.
Also, Steve Allen ran the Abersoch 10k with his family whilst his wife Helen Allen, and her sister Nikki were cheerleading and helping us spread awareness with Spider-Ede t-shirts on. Steve and Helen’s son, Will, sadly passed away from DIPG in December 2016 aged 14, and have since been fundraising in his memory to help other children #willpower
Today, Genting Casino held their poker tournament in aid of our appeal. Thank you to all involved and to those who attended.
Young Isabelle, just 6 years old, did a sponsored crab catch today as well, raising over £250! Well done Isabelle, such a wonderful way to raise awareness and sponsorship!
Also today, Jazmin Sneddon walked up Mount Snowdon in a Spider-Man costume in the hot sunshine! Well done Jazmin for not just raising funds but also spreading more awareness for us to those who you met along the way.
This past week, Katharine Hughes walked 96 miles on the West Highland Way in Scotland, flying the Spider-Ede flag and collecting donations along the way. A huge thank you to Katharine for raising awareness so far away and also of course for the collections made. She’s raised just over £705 so far!

Also today, Rachael Rowlands, David Hibbert and Lucy Rowlands are driving from Edinburgh to Rome, roughly 2000 miles each way, in an old London Taxi as part of a Rust2Rome rally with 40 other cars. The criteria was that the car could not be worth more than £500 on the road!
