Fundraiser of the Month is Deirdre Stewart
Deirdre Stewart joined Team Allergy in support of her friend and work colleague Victoria Pidgley. Deirdre said “I learned about the charity from one of my friends at work (Victoria) whose daughter has a severe peanut allergy. Allergy UK has been a great support to her and her family. Most people will think allergies aren't a big deal, however they have a big impact on the person they affect as well as their family.”
Deirdre took on the brave challenge of training and fundraising for the famous “Prudential Ride London 100”, a 100 mile cycle race through London and Surrey. Victoria joined forces with Deirdre and together they have raised over £582 for Allergy UK. Deirdre said “Our fundraising events have included two big cake bakes at work combined with the activity on my just giving page where people have been really generous”.
Our fundraising manager Julia says “Victoria has been an amazing supporter of Allergy UK for some time now and we are so grateful that she recruited Deirdre to take part in The Prudential Ride 100; their joint fundraising efforts have been outstanding”.
