Dear <<First Name>>

On Wednesday 12th May at 12pm, a team from The Matthew Project joined 23 other Norfolk charities in an epic challenge walking virtually from Norwich Cathedral to Notre Dame, Paris. The journey is 375 miles and the aim is to there in under two weeks...

According to the NHS it takes an average person 1 hour and 38 minutes to walk 5 miles. Team TMP Trekker have averaged 7 miles per day each.
That's at least 2 hours per day dedicated to walking on top of full time jobs, volunteering, family duties, housework and gardening!
There have been tears, injuries, feelings of defeat and exhaustion and yet on they march.
We are sending out this email in the hope that you'll consider supporting them with a donation in order for them to reach their fundraising target of £2,000. Checking the leaderboard this morning, they are have already walked 316.9 miles around the country lanes of Norfolk. They have 58.1 miles left, in not very pleasant weather, so let's help them carry on in the knowledge that not only will they have finished early, but they'll have reached their fundraising goal too.

Other news for today, we are happy to say that our open day at Bishop's House Gardens was a total success. Even the damp weather couldn't dampen spirits!
Very proud of all the team that worked so hard. We had 450 people through the gate, lots of cake eaten and a total of £3,477.81 raised. We also had two wonderful caterpillar cake entrants with Jo Courtier and her daughter. A £20 B&Q voucher is on it's way to them. A big thank you to everyone that attended.

And finally, some GREAT feedback to finish
“Hey Gina! I met the Head of Sixth Form at Hellesdon on Monday and he was singing your praises. He said that you’re doing really well there, and the students have really taken to you. Thought it would be nice to know! Have a good day."

Wishing you all wonderful weekend whatever your plans.

With thanks and kind regards, The Matthew Project x
