    Weight - loss period - 01 / 08 / 2005 – 30 / 09 / 2005

    I have decided to raise funds for 3 cancer charities by doing a sponsored weight – loss between above dates. During these 9 weeks, I will be working hard to try and shed as many pounds as possible.
    It would be fantastic if you would agree to sponsor me for each lb of weight loss. For example, if you were to sponsor me for £1 per lb lost and I lose 10 lbs, you would pay £10.
    My target is a total loss of 21 lbs. I have been weighed in front of a witness on 01/08/2005 and I will disclose my before and after weights on 30 / 09 / 2005, at the end of the sponsored weight loss period.
    I am absolutely mortified at the thought of disclosing my weight to everybody, so you’d better get your hands in your pockets and make it worthwhile!!!
    All money received will be divided equally between the following charities:-

    Cancer Research
    The Christie Hospital
    The Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital Cancer Unit

    The amount you sponsor me for is entirely up to you, but please give as much as you can afford as it is for a very good cause!
    If you would like to sponsor me, please add your details to the form provided.

    Thanking you in advance for your generosity.

    Wish me luck!

    You will have a form to fill in by hand up in the bandroom on Thursday. Should have been last night but a certain person forgot to display it..... Will you get on his case if he forgets again on Thursday?

    Anyone else having trouble accessing the form can e-mail on the address given previously.

    Thanks everyone!
