Last time I wrote about my Going Sober for October challenge it was pretty much about what I was doing, but this time it’s more about why I’m doing this and the charity that I’m raising money for.
I’d certainly heard about Macmillan Cancer Support charity and particularly about the Macmillan nurses, but I’ve not had any involvement with Macmillan before joining this campaign. I first heard about it from an advert on the radio and for some reason having a month without drink sounded like a good idea. I don’t see it so much a challenge as it is a test of will power. The reason that I decided to go ahead with the challenge is that the more I found out about Macmillan cancer support the more important I think the organisation is.
I can’t explain it as well as Macmillan does itself and so I suggest you watch this short video, or this slightly longer video on the Macmillan website which explains more about the role of the Macmillan nurses. What I can say is that I’d want Macmillan to be there for anyone I love if they were diagnosed with cancer.
So visit the website, find out more and help support by sponsoring me to keep sober until the end of the month.
