CBC Director Terry Connolly to walk WALL OF CHINA for charity

5132

currently Terry has raised a massive 5132...the fund is still open & payments can still be made...see below for details

 
Cambuslang BC Director Terry Connolly is set to tackle the great walk of life in China later this year. Terry 54 years old, hopes that by completing an eight day charity trek along the Great Wall of China he can raise thousands of pounds for cancer respite home the Maggies's Centre.

Terry and his family have recently been touched by cancer, losing his sister-in-law in Ireland to the disease and just weeks later losing a neighbour and friend. Not many of us have not been touched by cancer in some way or other in our lives.

Help Terry raise money for cancer

Terry planned to raise with YOUR help 2500 and he involved our club and his local church, St.Bride's. He and his wife are involved in Cambuslang Credit Union and they have agreed to hold a bingo night to help raise money.
       Cambuslang Bowling Club 28th May held a Sports Quiz night run by our very own 'Squirrel' started the ball rolling in our club with all proceeds going to Terry's charity.

Maggie's Centres are for anybody who has or who has had cancer. They also help their families, friends and carers.
The aim of Maggie's Centres is to help people with cancer to be as healthy in mind and body as possible and enable them to make their own contributions to their medical treatment and recovery.
Maggie's is first and foremost a homely, relaxing place to be in. Its open all day and you can drop in any time to have a coffee and a chat, if you want to learn more about your cancer or if you just want a quiet somewhere to reflect and sit down

Terry's trek along the Great Wall in October 2004 will involve walking 7 to 8 hours a day, camping at night....its a wonderful gesture and lets get behind him and give him every help we can.
