Andrew Whelan on completion of his challenge

Many thanks to our friend Andrew Whelan who has achieved the challenge he set himself to raise £2018 for us in 2018.

He asked family, friends and colleagues to sponsor him as he abstained from alcohol for the whole year.

And how did it go?

“Really well,” says Andrew, “I feel great, I lost a stone and it made me feel more focused. I got a taste for non-alcoholic beers and could still socialize till 3 in the morning!”

To celebrate his achievement, his friend gave him a bottle of his favourite red wine. “My friends and family were very encouraaging, especially as the whole aim was to support CPotential’s work with disabled children.”

“I’d completely recommend going dry to other people – a great way to get fitter and to fundraise for a really worthwhile cause.”

If Andrew’s example has inspired you to do a fundraising challenge yourself (we’re not suggesting 2019 marathons in 2019) we’d love to hear from you. We can help you set up a MyDonate page and with publicity ideas.
