I hope you had a lovely Christmas and may I take this opportunity to wish you a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year.
2013 is exciting for LINC as we celebrate our 15th Birthday. Look out for our special events including a Celebrity Tea Party, Birthday Ball, a Bee Gees tribute act, our annual golf day, 3 Counties cycle ride and many more.
In November 2012 we launched our Make a Difference Campaign to raise £500K to improve the clinical psychology service in both Cheltenham and Gloucester Hospitals. Many patients would benefit from this service if there was more availability.
Can you make a difference and hold an event for us or support us in our efforts?
The LINC staff are doing amazing things. Debbie, my PA, is taking part in The Goofy Challenge in Orlando which involves running a half marathon on the Saturday and a full marathon on the Sunday making a total of 39.3 miles in one weekend. You can sponsor her by visiting www.virginmoneygiving.com/debbiemasding1
I am rather concerned about Karen who has agreed to take part in 15 half marathons during 2013 raising money for LINC. You can either join her or sponsor her by visiting www.virginmoneygiving.com/karenorgan
To mark this special year we have signed up to several challenge companies and can offer you the chance to climb Kilimanjaro, cycle from London to Paris, trek in Iceland, walk from London to Brighton and last but not least walk the West Highland Way. Details of many of these can be found on our website www.lincfund.org or by contacting the LINC office.
If this is not for you then how about a tandem parachute jump? I hope very much that you can help us make 2013 very special and make a difference.
With very best wishes to you all.
