How do you fancy doing something amazing to kick off 2020?!
Join us for the Charity Link Sleepover this January – no training required – just some warm clothes, a sleeping bag and a sense of adventure!
Registration is open now for this memorable ‘challenge’ on Friday 24th Jan (we start at 8pm and finish with a breakfast bap at at 8am on the Saturday morning).
It’s all about facing bit of hardship for one night so others don’t have to.
Last time it was tough (the experience stays with you) but I think everyone also gained something special from taking part. Why don’t you reserve that slot in your 2020 diary – there are individual and team entries – who can you encourage to share this unique evening with?

If you are shopping online this Christmas (or at any time of year!), did you know that you can help raise extra funds for Charity Link – at no extra cost to you?!
Shop via the Easy Fundraising website – it links to a range of big retailers and each time you shop (rather than going to the retailers websites direct) we get a donation (at no extra cost to you) www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/charitylink
If you shop via Amazon – instead of going to amazon.co.uk type in Smile.amazon.co.uk It’s the same usual Amazon service but you can choose a charity to support (we are listed here as Leicester Charity Organisation Society) and again we then receive a donation each time you shop.
You can also raise funds when you book restaurant tables and hotels online at Charitable Bookings – https://charitablebookings.com/

Please share with family and friends too – the pennies really do add up!

Thanks to all the teams who joined us to take on the Spanish Bay Golf Course (via the technology at the Leicester Golf Centre in Oadby!) last night. We had a great night and hope you did too.

Congratulations to Matthew, Josh, Robert and Rebecca of Rowley’s Chartered Accountants who won the competition and received a Spanish themed hamper to enjoy. We are planning another event for next year so let us know if you fancy joining us (suitable for keen golfers or those new to the sport!).
