I know it’s been a while since I last posted, I’ll make that the subject of another post. I’m not procrastinating, I’ve got a more important message for this post.

CLIC and it’s done

In a few days (as of when this post goes live), I’ll be taking part in an event to raise money for CLIC Sargent. They are an amazing bunch of folk who help children and young people who are suffering with cancer.

The event I’m taking part in is their Rage the Rapids night. Which is a late into midnight white water rapids event.

That’s right, I’ll be taking part in a kind of extreme sport. How cool is that?

Raising Money?

That’s right. Team Kawabunga – the team I’m in – are trying to raise money for this event by … er… not doing that much, really. We’re each telling people we know, posting on social media (except for the members of the team without social media accounts) and pointing people at the Team Kawabunga Sponsorship page (graciously provided by Virgin Money). Our target is £1,000 and we’re pretty close to reaching it; at the time of writing this post we’re at £800.

If you happen to have a few sheckles spare and would like them to go to a good cause, then I would like to ask that you take a look at the Team Kawabunga sponsorship page.

Kawabunga? Like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles?

Kind of. The team name is actually Japanese and means “River Style”

Seriously.

川文雅

That’s the team name in Kanji, and here’s the break down:

川 – かわ (read: kawa) – River/Stream

文雅 – ぶんが (read: bunga) – Elegant or refined Style

So, now you know what I’m doing at the weekend. I ask that you please take a look at CLIC Sargent main site (here’s the link again), they are a great bunch of people and they’ve agreed to put this event on. If you feel moved to help them out, then you can either sponsor Team Kawabunga or take part in one of CLIC Sargent’s other events.

Right, I’d best be getting on with my day.

Have fun everyone.
