Sportrelief is coming up.
Do you think this is a good idea?
And what do you do for charity?
Gordon C., 22, veterinary medicine student
“Yes it is a good idea. Previously I have done fancy dress, raffle-tickets, selling sweets: tuch-ups and other fundraising events. I like to walk the Westhighland Way. It can take about a week to do. I like to do that for Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA) or the Greyhound Awareness League.”
Jane S., 66, pensioner
“Yes. I have done sponsored walks for 25 years. Just recently I participated at the Moonwalk, which was very tiring and took several hours. I do think I’ll retire now from future sponsored walks.”
Eddie, 49, previous manager of the charity for learning disabled kids HANSEL
“Yes. We give money to charities all the time. We support charities.”
Support workers James, 39, and Geraldine, 42, with Angus
James: “What is it? I dunno anything about it. But seems to be a good idea.”
Geraldine: “We do charity events like football and other fundraising events. We work at Turning Point, we support people out in their own communities. We are from the project ‘Different or the Same’.”
Aivaras K., 22,
“It is a good idea. I don’t really have time for that. I work the whole day.”
Yunis, 20, warehouse assistant
“No. I saw it on TV though. It is a good idea. I don’t know how they raise the money . I don’t think I would do something like that in future.”
Barbara, 19, architect assistant,
“Yes, it is a good idea. At school we did a stay-awake for Comic Relief. We raised over £1000 pounds. I will give a bit of donation in future. Also, I would like to do a ‘walk on hot coals’ for Comic relief or a children’s charity.”
