The Rarer Cancers Foundation
We (Nicole Farmer, Sara Bartlett, Chris Treacher, Mark Anderson, Tony Derbyshire and Darren Broad) have decided to do something called the Ultimate Challenge to raise awareness and money for The Rarer Cancers Foundation. The challenge consists of a series of 5 events running up to the Olympics. These events are: An Olympic Distance Triathlon (1500m open water swim, 23 mile bike ride and 6 mile run) a 100 mile bike ride, a 6 mile open water swim, run a matathon and canoe 125 miles (Devises to Westminster).
The first event was the Swanage Tri on the 14th August, followed by the Bath to London 102 bike ride on the 28th August. The Canoe race is in April 2012 and the swim and marathon have yet to be organised. We are trying to do as many events together but sometimes this does not happen and team members are completing events on their own to satisfy the challenge.

Fire Walk Charity Event
Thirty people walked over hot coals to raise money for a little girl whose bravery has inspired many to do courageous acts.
Walking over embers burning at more than 1,200 degrees Farenheit in bare feet is not something to be taken lightly but Darren Broad from Potential Plus Ltd joined another 29 people to do exactly that in order to raise money for little Lydia Cross.
Chris Powell organised the event to raise money for Lydia Cross, a brave girl who had her legs amputated below the knee after contracting septicaemia when she was just two years old. Chris initially set out to raise £1,500 but more than £6,000 came flooding in, enough to pay for two new prosthetic legs.
