The Community Radio Show #137

By | February 14, 2018

Broadcast on Thursday 8th February.  Our studio guest was mega fundraiser Gary Kirton from Ashford Charity Funds.  Gary starting fundraising in 1989 and has raised thousands for charities over the years.  His latest challenge is to run the London Marathon with his wife, Maz, this April.  Both will be dressed as penguins for the event and Gary hopes to raise over £5,000 for Hospice UK and is almost there in sponsorship and donations.  Their new penguin mascot has yet to be named so if you have any suggestions, email us and we’ll forward your ideas to Gary.

If you want to be inspired by someone who has organised so many different events over the years to raise such a huge amount of money for charity then listen to the show.  I wonder what the next challenge is going to be…

If you’d like to get in touch with Gary or make a donation to his Marathon challenge, you can contact him on:
