Climbing Kilimanjaro for Epilepsy

by Kerry Adams

After watching the comic relief Kilimanjaro expedition I decided to take on the challenge myself for the National Society of Epilepsy. This charity is close to my heart as my father has suffered from Epilepsy from a young age and more recently has been involved with the charity looking to help others with the condition.

One in twenty people will suffer from a seizure at some point in their life and the National Society of Epilepsy is at the front of research to better understand the condition and ensuring a seizure-free life a reality for all those with epilepsy.

The target we need to raise for the climb is £4000! In November 2009 we held a Murder Mystery Dinner in the Village Hall (pictured above and below) to begin the fundraising and the night was a great success and a lot of fun! We managed to raise £400 which was a great first step....

Throughout the year we are organising fundraising events in the Corfe Mullen and Bournemouth area, the next is a "Pub Quiz and Curry Night” at the Village Hall on Saturday 6th March. Tickets are £10 and include entry to the quiz and an all you can eat buffet. (see Village diary) So come and test your knowledge with 6 rounds of questions: general knowledge, music, sport, history, popular culture and a picture round. Whilst enjoying curries from "Kamlesh's Cozy Kitchen", ranging from mild to very hot!

Other fundraisers planned include “A Night at the Races”, Village Fate, Salsa Evening, a comedy night and many more. See our website for details on all our events as well as ways to donate to the campaign

We need all the help we can get so I hope to see you at one of our events!

One more helping...
