Support Dan our marathon man!

OUR marathon man Dan Campbell will be taking part in this year's Virgin Money London Marathon on Sunday April 26 and hoping to raise thousands for Carlisle Mencap.

The official charity for this year's event is national Mencap and Dan, a team leader with Carlisle Mencap, is hoping to raise a minimum of £2,000 through his efforts.

To help him, our charity has joined forces with Tesco and their store at Rosehill in Warwick Road, Carlisle, for a couple of events to boost his sponsorship total!

On Friday and Saturday, February 21 and 22, from 10am each day, teams of staff, trustees, service users and friends will be doing 20-minute stints in the saddle of an exercise bike to pile up the miles and hopefully the pounds for Dan's total. So make sure you get along to do your shopping at the store on one of those days and cheer on the Carlisle Mencap efforts as well. 

And if you want to join one of the teams, feel free! Just give events and fundraising officer PHIL TAYLOR or DAN CAMPBELL a ring on 01228 674393 or email [email protected] or [email protected] 

Then on Saturday, April 18, again at the Tesco store at Rosehill, there will be a special Carlisle Mencap fundraising stall featuring a tombola for a final push to boost Dan's sponsorship total. We will also be hoping to recruit new volunteers on the day, which again wil be from 10am.

Carlisle Mencap are very grateful for the support of Tesco's store champion Kelly Cromie and the rest of the Rosehill staff - Every Little Helps indeed!

And you can also help Dan by going online to one of his two donation pages. The links are:
