Top Fundraisers Davina and Warren McColl

Frightening n’ Fundraising on Halloween


Many thanks to Davina and Warren McColl who raised £100 pounds for FNF with a three-and-a-half hour night-time walk dressed as a witch and a vampire. The couple conquered a 12 mile stretch of the A286 Chichester-Midhurst road under a bright moon. They attracted the attention and car horns of passing motorists not just by their scary costumes but by their very sensible high vis vests and torches. Davina praised FNF’s work to “raise awareness” about the difficulties of non-resident parents and, talking of how Warren “is unable to see his three children from a previous marriage”, she noted that “it’s hard to see why he cannot have access to his children on a fortnightly basis.” Thank you and good luck to Davina and Warren!

Top Fundraisers Larry Harwood

High Endurance Giving

Congratulations to Larry Haywood (pictured having a great time.) Last year, Larry raised over a thousand pounds running the Reading half marathon and the Paris marathon. He did them both in personal best times of one hour and 47minutes and three hours and 55 minutes respectively.  One of the central motivations behind this admirably gruelling form of fundraising was Larry’s wish to support his brother-in-law, who is currently going through a terrible time with his wife and children. The fantastic amount of money is being passed through a JustGiving webpage which will add an extra couple of hundred  pounds in the form of tax savings. Great work.

Top Fundraisers Phil Evans

Fund-racing from Land's End to John O'Groats

In an epic journey, reminiscent of the family courts, from Land’s End to John O’Groats, Phil Evans raised over £900 for FNF. A member and father, Phil cycled the length of the country in the heat of mid-summer alongside 11 other members of the Port Talbot Wheelers Cycling Club. He raced north in little over a week, regularly travelling over a hundred miles a day and exceeding his fundraising target. We are very grateful for such a brilliant sum that Phil raised quickly, simply and safely using Just Giving - an online service which has the added bonus of automatically collecting Gift Aid, adding an extra 28% to every penny donated. Families Need Fathers has an account with Just Giving, which is at the disposal of FNF members, their friends, families and supporters. If you would like to find out about using Just Giving to support a fundraising project, please e-mail Great work Phil!
