Thank you from James Butterfill

I am delighted to say that last Sunday signified the accomplishment of running the Virgin Money London Marathon in support of Teens Unite.  Although I am overjoyed to have completed one of the things on my personal bucket list, it is a much greater sense of achievement I feel as the process has yet again shown the tremendous generosity of family and friends to such a wonderful charitable cause.  We anticipate that the final figure will be in excess of £5000 with the other Teens Unite marathon runners having already achieved a staggering £23,000, I cannot thank you all enough.


I have been fortunate to also have the support of my students at North Kent College who willingly took part in a continuous 48 fitness challenge where they amassed over £800 in donations.  There are regular reports of the younger generation failing to think of others but I can only praise them for supporting the charity and myself.          

The annual Bromley Cricket Club Charity day again was used as the season opener, sadly we were beaten by the weather but it did little to dampen the enthusiasm of those that attended the evening.  Jackie and her team as usual kept the drinks flowing, sold raffle boxes and generally kept everyone in the party spirit.  Debbie and her daughters provided fine food which kept everyone happy while we enjoyed our musician, Dave La for the entertainment and auction.  Special mention should be made of Colin Wiseman at this stage who at the last minute stood in as our guest auctioneer, I think everyone would agree that his combination of quick mind, charm and good looks meant that we exceeded last year’s total.  There were a number of individuals through the day and night who made extraordinarily generous financial contributions, you know who you are and I sincerely thank you for your kindness. 


My final thank you is to Heidi, the majority of the pre-event preparation was solely down to her.  The auction and raffle prizes were gathered over a 6-week period, meetings with Jackie and Debbie, Andrew Caswall (pre and post Peroni), bouncy castle companies, face painters and musicians took up considerable time but I think we can all agree it was worth it.  As a final thought, the day was about raising money and to remember Sadie France (Rance) and to support her brother Pip and the ever wonderful Julia and Oliver.  Please rest assured that the money we all raised will go to help those that need it most.  If you would like to still make a donation the website is
