Day one of the Authors’ challenge….

The purpose behind the fundraising activities

Well I sent an all-office email out today, declaring my intention to lose weight over the coming months. I got a great response from several colleagues, and hope that by 1st of June I will have lost enough to generate a good amount of money for friendsofpakati.com

Colleagues took pictures as I got weighed today

At 1pm today I was weighed officially, and below are my results:

Evidence!

17 stone 9 lbs / 113.4 kg for me.

My colleague & friend Karen registered a weight of 10 stone 4 lbs

I want to lose as much as I can by 1st June so we can use funds raised in good time before late September when I hope to return to Pakati.

Please help me help the wonderful students of both Pakati schools via http://gofundme.com/friends-of-pakati

Lets repeat scenes like this last September when some lucky students were the first to try out the computers donated and delivered to pakati schools
