The easiest way to donate is via the Charity Giving web site, Click on the picture to the left to take you straight to their donations page.

Charity Giving is a charity donations web site that ensures any monies you donate all go to their respective recipients. Indeed, if you are a UK tax payer, make sure you check the Gift Aid box on donating and Charity Giving will add the tax relief to the donation, so a donation of just £10 is worth £12.42 to Keeping Abreast.

The Charity

The main aim of Fat Bloke On A Moped is of course to raise funds and awareness. With my wife Claire's situation, after her double mastectomy and because she needed no further treatment of chemotherapy or radiotherapy, she was entitled to have reconstruction at the same time of the operation as her mastectomy.

To help women come to terms with their ordeal a charity called Keeping Abreast ( registered charity no.1129522) was formed in 2007 by patients Anna Beckingham and Beverly Birritteri and Breast Reconstruction nurse specialist Ruth Harcourt. The aim of the charity is to help patients both newly diagnosed with breast cancer facing the possibility of mastectomy and also women who were considering reconstructive surgery to be able to meet and talk to other women who have been through similar experiences.

They currently have a group based at the Norfolk & Norwich Hospital in Norwich and a more recent group at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital King's Lynn. Their aim eventually is to expand the charity to have groups all over the country. It's my aim to help them as much as possible achieve this goal.

Needless to say, visit the Keeping Abreast web site by clicking on their logo above for the full information on this fabulous charity.

Can I stress that all monies raised will be going to Keeping Abreast. The teams equipment is being financed by their own pockets.

Break Down of Funds Raised for Project Norfolk

The following table is a brief break down of the funds raised from the little trip around Norfolk. The Online Donations are all via the Charity Giving web site (see side panel to the left) and all money donated via that method has Gift Aid tax reclaimed, hence the total on the line below. Cash donations are as a result of the all the little fund raising events attended over the course of the project including the street collections, quiz, sponsorship, guess the mileage of the trip, etc. Cheque donations are listed seperately for no other reason that it helped me keep track of things.

I'll try to keep this updated as best I can. By clicking on the Donations picture in the left hand side bar, you can get the most up to date list of these donations. Currently it will still show the funds raised from last years Project Norfolk, so I'm only counting any donations from 2011 onward.
It's early days but we're already off to a good start.
