Runner-up Fundraiser of the Year
Our runner-up fundraiser of the year for 2014 is Ian Connell.
Ian Connell from Walton-on-Thames has been named as runner-up Fundraiser of the Year for 2014 for Allergy UK, raising more than £2,000 for the charity during 2014.
Ian began his fundraising for Allergy UK after receiving advice and support for his anaphylactic daughter, Jo Jo. In June 2014 Ian completed The Nightrider, a 65 mile overnight bike ride around London. He raised an amazing total of more than £1,000 in sponsorship for this event.
Ian’s commitment to fundraising for Allergy UK has grown from strength to strength and he has arranged a school fundraising day, a 29 mile bike ride from London to Windsor as well as a 1,000 mile Fitness Challenge at his local gym, Anytime Fitness.
Ian said: “Allergy UK has helped me understand what to avoid with regards to my little girl's allergies and I want to give back to the charity so that other adults and kids can benefit from the help and advice they offer”.
Our Fundraising Manager, Julia, said: “Ian’s commitment, dedication and drive is outstanding. I am extremely proud to have him on board the fundraising team and am very excited for his plans for 2015”.
Everyone at Allergy UK would like to say thank you and congratulations to Ian for his outstanding efforts fundraising for the charity this year.
