Half Way There...

Three months on from our last charity update, Michelle has not only smashed another dozen challenges - she's well on her way to reaching her £30k target.

With her 22nd challenge approaching this weekend, here's an update on what our busy florist has been up to...

Garden Party

Hosting a traditional garden party with friends and family, lovely food was provided by Tea pots and Treats, with cakes provided by Michelle’s wonderful baking ladies. Star of the show, Tiffany Belle, stepped in at the last minute, providing entertainment as an amazing Adele tribute whilst Morrisons donated raffle prizes guaranteed to drum up a crowd. Family, friends and neighbours raised an amazing £857.24.

The Cleveland Way Walk

Stretching 109 miles from Helmsley on the southern edge of the North York Moors national park to Filey on the East coast .This year walkers are celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Cleveland Way so it ties in well with Michelle’s 50/50 challenge. Carrying 15lb on her back and marching like she was in the army with her partner in crime, Mark – she faced the force of Mother Nature with torrential rain, wind and fog – she managed the whole trek with a smile on her face every day!

Total Warrior 

Tackling this relentless obstacle course with her Body Design family, Michelle was determined to make it through muddy obstacle courses to raise a brilliant total of £1026.

Head Shave & Tattoo 

Inspired by all of those enduring chemotherapy treatment right now; Michelle wanted to represent everyone facing hair loss. Recognising that they are the brave ones, rather than her, she simply wanted to make a statement for what they are going through whilst championing the work that The Prince of Wales Hospice do for families that have life-limiting illnesses. Huge thanks to Skinworkx for generously donating their time to shave Michelle's head and tattoo our iconic daisy logo onto her neck and to Nick Teal for documenting the whole experience with his fantastic photography. 

Charity Fashion Show

Teaming up with the Complete Clothing Company, Michelle rallied up friends to model the latest high street brands, which the company offer many amazing savings on. Hosting this fabulous event at The Rustic Arms, the community came together for an evening of fashion, prosecco and fundraising!

Upcoming Challenges

Challenging herself both physically and mentally; she has another 28 challenges to go before she can sit back (but probably not relax) and look back on the crazy year she's had!
