Help Mary Ward’s Head of Finance lose a few pounds

28 Jul 2014

Allister Duncan, Head of Finance and Resources at the Mary Ward Settlement, has decided that his investment in food and drink has to be reduced so that he can achieve a more streamlined portfolio.Allister

Please sponsor Allister so that his lbs can be converted into £s for Mary Ward.  Allister wants to lose 25lb (just over 11kgs for the more metrically minded) in time to buy a new suit for a family wedding at the end of October.  We will be monitoring and reporting regularly on his progress.

Allister’s aim is to raise £1,000 to be shared equally between the Mary Ward Adult Education Centre Fund (which focuses this year on the purchase of computer equipment to help students who find it difficult to access learning) and the Mary Ward Legal Centre 1000 cases appeal (to support cases that are no longer funded by the Legal Aid system).
