We’re thrilled to announce our sponsorship of Team GB 800m athlete Lynsey Sharp, who will compete at the Commonwealth Games 2014 in Glasgow.
Lynsey learned the importance of charity and charitable giving through personal experience. A close university friend of hers has a daughter who was diagnosed with a brain tumour. Whilst partial treatment was available in the UK, Bella’s Benefit was set up to raise funds to allow the child to receive essential support and specialist treatment that could only be found in the ISA. Lynsey has been instrumental in promoting the cause through her own social media channels , and that is how she became acquainted with Virgin Money Giving.
We understand that all of our fundraisers strive hard to achieve their own goals just like Lynsey has to focus and keep herself motivated in her sport. It’s important to get the right work-life balance and Lynsey intends to use her own experience as an athlete to help inspire fundraisers to keep striving and meet their personal goals. So watch out for more news, events and blogs where Lynsey will give her own top tips.
Lynsey said: “Having seen first hand how important fundraising for a good cause can be, I hope I can do my little bit to help inspire Virgin Money Giving fundraisers to keep going to cross their own personal finish line, especially when it gets tough. It will mean so much for the charities involved.”
