Forget about the Grammys, BAFTAs and Golden Globes, we have our own red carpet event, the Life List awards. We held an evening of celebration for some of our incredible supporters to celebrate their fundraising accomplishments throughout 2018.
Our Life List offers people the chance to do something incredible whilst raising money for St Oswald’s. We have a range of challenges from completing a zipwire to an overseas trek with each activity having its own fundraising target. We know you could be facing your fears, getting an adrenaline rush or just after a new adventure, so we want to thank you for all of your hard work and determination.
Supporters were invited to the Crown Plaza Hotel in Newcastle to a ceremony hosted by our Hospice Chaplain, Davina Radford, on February 5th to celebrate their 2018 achievements with us.
After thanking everyone for the incredible efforts and achievements in aid of the Hospice, Davina presented attendees with their hard earned certificates and medals. Challenges completed in 2018 included; Festival of Cycling, Zipwire challenge, Ponteland Wheelbarrow Race, the Sahara Trek and the Great North Run. Trophies were also awards to some supporters who went over and above their fundraising targets.
It was a great night enjoyed by all, lots of laughter and cheers filled the room as people accepted their awards. Lauren Honey, a supporter who completed the Sahara Trek was in attendance on the evening, she said:
I’ve never been to anything like this before but it was amazing. I enjoyed catching up with my fellow trekkers but also getting to know the St Oswald’s Team. Finding out about what other people had achieved was incredible to get an insight into their passion and dedication for raising money and completing challenges for the Hospice. It was nice to be thanked in a more personal way too, I appreciate the extra thought.
A huge well done and thank you to everyone who has took part in the Life List for us in 2018.
You’ve all done something amazing!
