To celebrate 100 years since the birth of our founder, we asked our supporters to take part in #100for100 challenges.
Here are some of the highlights from the year:
Paws for thought
‘I would like to thank everyone who came along, and the dedicated volunteers who helped to make the day a success.’
Stepped up to the challenge
Together with her friend Tony, she took on the challenge of walking 100 steps between them.
‘I am so pleased I did it as I know the money raised was all for a good cause!’
‘I no longer work in social services, but I remain passionate about enhancing the lives of disabled people.
‘That’s why Leonard Cheshire and the charity he founded appealed to me.’
‘The 100 for 100 challenge was a great way to motivate myself and see if I could do this while raising money for causes that are very important to me.
Climbing Ben Nevis
‘I have worked for Leonard Cheshire for 20 years at Holme Lodge in Nottingham. I wanted to mark the Centenary and 20 years of service by raising some money for the 100 for 100 initiative.’
‘I thought I was never going to get there, but I like a challenge and it was a fantastic goal to work towards. I would definitely do it again.’
The walk took place from Chester, Leonard Cheshire’s birthplace, to RAF Scampton in Lincolnshire, where Cheshire trained during the second world war.
‘It is a real privilege to lead Leonard’s charity and I hope in honouring this amazing humanitarian’s impact on the world we can inspire all of us to redouble our efforts to improve the life choices of disabled people.’
Sing your heart out
‘I love to sing so this was a really fun thing to do.
‘I’m very proud to have made a small contribution to the #100for100 challenge as part of the centenary celebrations.’
'The love, support and encouragement from everyone following my journey was completely overwhelming and it became a challenge more than I ever expected.
'I truly learnt to never underestimate your ability.'
Massive thank you to all our supporters, so far we've raised a total of £13,915.41 from your amazing #100for100 efforts!
