Putting our region's cancer needs first

Charlotte's Life in Lockdown

Life as we know it has been a bit different the past few months and we’ve all had to adapt to a new way of doing things, including fundraising.

While we’ve had to put all events on pause and get creative in our fundraising, one thing has remained the constant – the determination of our own team and our amazing supporters.

NWCR’s very own Community and Engagement Officer, Charlotte Ellwood, took part in the nationwide 2.6 challenge campaign; an initiative developed by the team behind Virgin Money London Marathon to make up for the fundraising shortfall after all events were postponed due to Covid-19.  

Charlotte challenged herself to cycle 260 miles in 26 days across May and June while furloughed, with a goal of £260. Racking up her mileage during her daily exercise, Charlotte smashed her challenge and exceeded her goal with a fundraising total of £800.

Charlotte said: "It's been great to have the challenge to focus on during lockdown and the fitness benefits are a huge bonus. I'm so happy that I've been able to continue supporting the Charity through the pandemic in my own way."
