Focusing on individual creativity, responsibility and success, Challenge 30 had 3 simple rules:
Magpie’s Littlest Rep
During their holiday, General Manager Laura Graham and her husband Stuart celebrated their son’s 4th birthday at Peppa Pig World in Southampton. In Magpie spirit, Matthew conquered 30 rides to raise £30 in support of our Challenge 30 initiative – Well done, Matthew!
‘Run or Dye’ 5k
Team ‘Run or Cry’, headed by Trisha Needham of The Churchill Theatre, raised £916 for Magpie during a 5k in May. Thank you to all the runners and to their 52 friends and family members who contributed to the campaign! For photos, click here.
The Regent’s Park 10k
Operations Co-ordinator Elaine Foley decided to conquer her goal of running for 30 minutes or more and signed up to run the Regent’s Park 10k on 28th May while raising money for Magpie through justgiving. Congratulations to Elaine and her teammates Chris, Alex and Andrea who raised over £600 for our 30th year!
The Nuts Challenge
Youth Group Director Natasha Mansfield-Osborne and friends Clare and Kathryn, Youth Group Assistant Facilitator Erica Moshman and Operations Co-ordinator Elaine Foley tackled a 7k muddy assault course called the ‘Nuts Challenge’ in Swires Farm, Dorking. In total, they raised £1111.03 ( £165 from the Summer School sharing) for Magpie’s 30th year! Thank you to everyone for making the aches and pains worth their while! For fun photos, click here.
All day Dance-a-Thon
Massive thanks to the amazing team at Charities Aid Foundation! They raised £480 for Magpie after an all-day dance-a-thon at their office. We are ever so grateful that they organised an event to support Magpie Dance in our 30th year.
Specialty Christmas card shop
One of Magpie’s dancers + volunteers, Megan Clements, raised £100 for Magpie’s 30th year by selling Christmas cards over November and December. We are so thankful for her passion and ongoing support!
To everyone who supported Magpie during our 30th year, through personal challenges and donations at our fundraising events or online through justgiving, we send our sincere gratitude. None of what we do would be possible without you.
