I am sure that we all know someone who either has heart disease or has died from heart disease and the effect that it has on those who are suffering or those who are left behind. Quite often heart disease goes undiagnosed with many people losing their life prematurely to an unexpected heart attack and I myself have lost friends and work colleagues who were just a few years older than myself.
Some people may know that I lost my mom to this cruel fate 3 years ago on 24th September and that one of my nephews has just undergone a major heart operation at the age of 11 to replace the valves that were operated on when he was just a few months old.
My husband has decided to take part in a 30 mile cycle ride around Coventry which has been organised by The British Heart Foundation to raise funds for this superb charity and in memory of my mom. The cycle ride takes place on 3rd October, which is just over 2 weeks away and we only have £60 online sponsorship/donations, which is a far cry from the £500 we were hoping to raise.
I have decided to run a giveaway for all those who sponsor my husband online through his Just Giving page.
This is what I have decided to put up as prizes depending on which target we manage to reach by the time the cycle ride takes place. Anyone who sponsors him before 12.00 noon (GMT) on 3rd October will be included in the draw which will take place later that day and will be for one of these prize amounts:
If we reach £100 or more online donations I will donate 1 prize of £10 off any item
If we reach £200 or more online donations I will donate 1 prize of £10 off any item and 1 prize of £5 off any item
If we reach £300 or more online donations I will donate 1 prize of £15 off any item and 2 prizes of £5 off any item
If we reach £400 or more online donations I will donate 1 prize of £20 off any item and, 1 prize of £10 off any item and 2 prizes of £5 off any item
Each £1 sponsored will receive one entry, so if you make a sponsorship of £5 your name will go into the draw 5 times. The more you sponsor the higher the chance you have of winning.
