The Derry Last Mile Fundraiser Emma Higgins started the challenge on 1st March and aims to be done by 11 APRIL and only a few days to go. The challenge is to run,walk,crawl the distance between Derry and Glasgow within 6 weeks which is 194 miles. She currently lives and works in Glasgow, she has not been able to get home to Derry since last summer due to the pandemic. So she thought she would set a challenge and work towards a goal to keep her spirits up until she can be reunited with her family and friends. "I chose to do a fundraiser as motivation to keep going and chose Cedar as it has actually been a great help to a friend/family member who visited the Derry branch. Cedar has helped them achieve goals they would not have been able to do alone and been a huge confidence boost for them too. The work done at Cedar is fantastic so I wanted to help give a little back if I could" Emma stated. "I jumped for joy at the finish line, It was fun but also tough, I'm so happy I did it and can now always say "I've run home to Derry so I did" Emma. Thank you so much for all of your help and words of encouragement throughout the challenge and thank you all for your donations which helped me smash my target. Emma set a target of £500 and has more than doubled it with a final total of £1085. Thank you for choosing Cedar for your fundraiser.
