Fundraising case studies

Nicola Kerr took part in the Isle of Wight challenge in April raising over £600 for Grandparents Plus

Nicola webNicola, who works for the Grandparents Plus advice service, took part in the Isle of Wight Challenge, with her wife Amy – trekking 25km across the island.

“Grandparents Plus is a charity that’s close to both of us through our work and we wanted to challenge ourselves and see how much we could raise for this great cause.

“I provide information and advice on their much-needed advice line and Amy is a child care solicitor who often represents family members and children in court proceedings” Said Nicola.

Nicola and Amy enjoyed taking part in the Isle of Wight Challenge so much that they are already planning to take part again next year! If you would like to join them and challenge yourself in 2017 then please contact Alana at or call 020 8981 8001.
