Tracey Francis, who works for Capula, based on Stone Business Park, is holding a charity event to raise funds for the Midlands Air Ambulance Charity.
Knowing Tracey was a Bear Grylls fan MAAC got in touch and said they had an opportunity for her to take part in a Bear Grylls challenge and raise money for the MAAC at the same time.
Tracey told the Gazette
“My partner and I have been raising money for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity for some time – we climbed Kilimanjaro a couple of years ago to raise money and got engaged at the top.
He was involved in a bad accident on 31st July this year and needed to be airlifted – so even more reason to support them now.”
‘I’m off to Zimbabwe to complete the Bear Grylls Africa Survival Challenge which takes place between 13th November and 21st Nov this year.
I have a goal of £5000 – all going to the MAAC – so please donate – no amount is too little!
Here’s a link to my just giving page so you can see what I’m doing and why
Tracey is currently 82% towards her goal of £5000 so The Bear Grill in Stafford are helping by putting on a Man V Food challenge, with 50% of takings will be donated to the charity.
The challenge is
To consume 24oz of pure Staffordshire beef burger stack, served with rashers of bacon and Monterey Jack cheese on a toasted bap, served with a mountain of chips, onion rings and 2 pints of coke or lemonade to be eaten by 1 person and finished within an hour (without being sick!).
The date is Sunday 2nd October, at 18.30, at The Bear Grill in Stafford
Cost is £24.95 or FREE if you complete the challenge
