DBS director Julie Priestley celebrated her birthday this weekend with an action-packed charity race at the Lincolnshire Showground. Julie took part in the Inflatable Colour Dash – a five-kilometre race where participants climb, clamber and crawl their way through a course of inflatable obstacles while being blasted with a variety of brightly coloured paints along the way. The event raises much needed funds for St. Barnabas Hospice, a leading Lincolnshire charity which provides palliative and end-of life care to adults living with life-limiting or terminal illnesses. “I took part in the race with my friends Trish and Di and we chose the team name Charlie’s Angels. We had a really fun time raising money for a wonderful cause and would like to thank everyone who has sponsored us. We have raised £143 offline and £40 online so far” explained Julie. Donations are still open and can be made through Julie’s JustGiving page here: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/lincolncolourdash2018.
Donations have continued to come in via David Clarke's Just Giving page at: https://www.justgiving.com/David-Clarke-Everest-Base-Camp So far £3184 has been raised online including Gift Aid and a further £202 has been donated offline. The current total stands at £3386. "I'm bowled over by everyone's generosity and really thrilled to have exceeded the target I wanted to raise for Cancer Research. A big heartfelt thank you to everyone involved with my Everest Base Camp efforts - especially Ian Taylor Trekking and the team of Sherpas and Yak driver who were amazingly kind and helpful." said DBS Director, David Clarke.

David has begun his trek to Everest Base Camp for Cancer Research UK and has had his first view of Mount Everest, the world’s highest mountain. If you’d like to make a donation please visit his Just Giving page. We’ve had the following update from David:
“Member of party helicoptered off this morning with altitude sickness, this is tough. Messages of support and donations mean a lot and are spurring me on.”
The party is currently in Namche Bazaar at 3440 metres (2.5 times the height of Ben Nevis) and will spend a couple of days acclimatising to the low levels of oxygen before making their way to Everest Base Camp.
