My fundraising page for the Force Cancer Charity so far has made over £900, including gift aid, which is more than I ever imagined it would. I have no words to describe how grateful I am for all your kind messages and generous donations of your hard earned cash to a worthy cause. You are all truly amazing and very kind.
Time to say… Thank You!
To show my appreciation for your generosity, I offered to fold a one thousand origami cranes to help reach one thousand pounds. The challenge was to make the target amount and complete the Origami Cranes by the time my wife finished the course of her treatments. She completed all her treatments in early December 2017 and so far all looking good. I however, have not achieved to raise £1000 yet and hopefully, my origami cranes will help do that.
After several months of folding, I have just finished folding 1000 origami cranes. It has taken a little longer than I planned, but I am happy to have finally folded my last crane (although I’ve folded a few more than 1000, just in case I miscounted them).
Now I need your suggestions on how I can turn these cranes into a donation for FORCE Cancer Support, who are at the forefront of helping people get through this dreadful illness. We have benefited from this charity so much and this is but a small gesture of gratitude from all of us.
Why 1000 Origami Cranes….
In ancient Japanese mythology, legend has it that anyone folding a thousand origami cranes without any help will be granted a wish. My wish is to wish for a speedy recovery for my wife and everyone suffering from this devastating illness. May their loved ones be given the strength to help support each other to get through this.
The story so far…
Back in April-May, I decided to have my hair shaved off in support of my dear wife undergoing chemotherapy treatments and raise money for the FORCE Cancer Charity at the same time. With the help of my boys and our local hairdresser, I shaved off my hair. I wrote on my blog page to raise money which was then taken up by Force and posted on their page. Here are the links to those pages:

I am keeping my fundraising page open until the end of January 2018. Please share this page as it will help raise an awareness of the great work by FORCE supporting cancer patients and the effect of this devastating illness.
If you feel up to donating, big or small, it will be greatly appreciated and will be helping to fund a fantastic cause. I really appreciate all your support. Thank you so very much.
