Looking For Idea’s On The Sixth Day Of Christmas….

On the Sixth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me…
Six Geese A Laying, Five Gold Rings, Four Calling Birds, Three French Hens, Two Turtle Doves and a Partridge in a Pear tree.

It’s beginning to get a little long winded this 12 Days lark but I am determined to pull it off and resolve to get to the end so I hope I still have some people still reading by the end of it all.
I suppose in some respects we should be thankful for the fact that I only post once a day and not continually….!

So yesterday was a busy day as ever. I was up and at them first thing so that I could get on with moving some things on and before I knew it, it was time to leave the house and get on with the day. I had planned a quick trip to the gym but in the end was really quite busy, however it was no drama because I reckon I expended as much energy doing my various jobs and talking the dog for a walk as I would have done at an hour in said Gym…

I have been thinking about the coming year and the fact I really will need to start towing the line and getting in some pretty hardcore walking training if I am to manage my HENRY Charity Walk next June (see header for a link) but I am positive that I will be able to manage it all, along with really pushing to improve my fitness. This also means that I shall have a great deal of preparations and logistical planning to get me sorted for walking along the Ridgeway then heading up to Hadrians Wall to do the same, thus completing my 170 miles journey inside the ten days put aside for the task.

I am very lucky that a very good friend of mine with EXCELLENT organisational skills has volunteered to help me with all of the logistics of camping and food and water and other walkers wanting to join etc etc, although I think I may have put the cat amongst the proverbial pigeons after announcing that it might be nice to have some Primary School classes walk with us for a mile or so each day and thus bring the message home to all we can both in the North and in the South of the country and how the charity aims to help the really young live a much healthier lifestyle.

I would therefore like to ask if I could have a little feedback from everyone who may have some ideas of what else I might do to make the whole event more newsworthy and therefore more likely to raise the £10,000 I would like to raise for the charity in question.

Please do list any ideas you think might work no matter how daft you think they may be. I need to read them all and consider them all so nothing will be pooh poohed out of hand, it will be discussed with the logistics and considered by the charity. Remember we are trying to make this as HIGH profile as we possibly can and although I have local news covering it, I think this is national newsworthy because of the subject matter and the fact that I am a newly slimmed down guy living a new and healthy lifestyle…..

So I shall leave you with that thought and I am sure you will wrack your brains until a little gem pops out.

Thanking you in advance,

‘Till tomorrow,

Stay out of the fridge

    Sorry, I’m not at all imaginative. Best I can come up with is for you to wear a sandwich board with images showing the (bad) foods you’ve cut out and the (good) food replacements to achieve your phenomenal weight loss.

    Hope you are feeling better Cameron! I imagine you plan to call media outlets (TV, radio, newspapers) in advance to try and get attention. What about contacting schools to see if children would be able to walk short distances and may even use it like a Walk-a-Thon and get donations? You could ask local stores to donate prizes and maybe even get t-shirts made for those participating that could have the logo of big sponsors? Big sponsors could pay $x to get on the shirt to help fund them. Maybe you give like 100 away to the first 100 walkers? I’d also consider posters or fliers advertising the event at local gyms and schools. Anyway- my food for thought!

      Thank you. There is some gold in there. I like the T-Shirts for sure. Maybe I could have one food type with a cross next to it and one with a tick. I can also go for sponsors as well to get their names up on everything.
      I had already thought about the Primary School children participating so I have passed that on to the logistics lady so watch this space…!

    Hash tags and social media in general …. I’m not the girl but there are many out there who can help you. Particularly those of school age …. why not get onto KAs and see if you can get the ear of one or two SM Savvy 6th formers.

    Sounds a bit lengthy, but you could check the national curriculum for primary school and see what the guidelines are like for healthy eating. When you contact the schools point out areas where your charity work and the healthy eating crossover e.g. the kids could be encouraged to make posters/papier maché good food and walk with you part of the way carrying them. Make it as easy as possible for teachers to get on board 🙂
