Team Spirit’s Charity Fundraising

Team Spirit Charity Fundraising

As many of you may know, over the last couple of years,  The Clifford Arms has been doing what little we can to support Team Spirit.  But we thought that perhaps it might be a good time of year to remind people why they put their time and considerable efforts into undertaking amazing cycling challenges.

In their own words,  this is why …

“What happens when you’re a little girl, 9 years old, though …  weighing only 2 ½ stone… something really isn’t medically right.

Well, our friend’s daughter Kayleigh, is that girl and the reason for her condition has to do with a rare kidney disorder. What is the disorder? Well, we are not really sure, but do know that its very rare.

What can be done to help make the condition better? Well, the doctors have said she needs a kidney transplant.

Now with the medication and treatment being so expensive, it costs hundreds of thousands every single month just to keep children like Kayleigh stable.  Of course, we can all do something to help any charity we choose, a charity that has some kind of special meaning, some personal connection, so we have decided to do all we can to raise as much money as possible for little Kayleigh and Birmingham Children’s Hospital.

We have set some outrageous targets to raise one million for BCH, but this will be done over time. We are determined and are willing to take on gruelling challenges and with great support crew, we can turn this dream to reality.”

Having now done three incredible challenges: Lands End to John O’ Groats, Coast to Coast and Climb & Ride (including climbing the three peaks), they have raised over £15,000 so far and are currently making plans for next year’s fund raising efforts.

More information is available on their Facebook page and donations can be made on their Just Giving page.


Clifford Duck

Clifford Duck completed his second Tough Mudder last weekend.   He has asked that we remind everyone that he is hoping to raise money for charity and asks that you donate either via the jar behind the bar or by using his friend’s B My Charity page.

Clifford Duck Update

Clifford Duck at Tough Mudder Dublin

Well it seems that Clifford Duck is enjoying his adventures.  He has a new feather in his cap, becoming a Tough Mudder Legionnaire ( https://toughmudder.co.uk/) after completing three laps in Dublin on Sunday 5th October 2014.

Clifford Duck

Clifford Duck was happy living on his shelf by the TV in the bar.  When the new 50″ TV was put in, he moved to a windowsill.  We are not sure if the view from the window caused him to develop a wanderlust, or, more worryingly, if someone abducked him.  He has been in contact with us via Facebook, but his adventures to date have done little to ease our concerns about him.

On his first day away we could tell from his facebook posts that he was taking good care of himself.  He’d been on a trip to Wales, been shopping for food and had a bath before bed.  He even got up early enough the next day to make sure he got his early morning swim.

Since then, it seems he might have got into bad company – namely a “Tough Mudder” (www.toughmudder.co.uk).  He has obtained a dodgy passport and taken to drinking, driving fast cars and consorting with the ladies.  He has even been arrested by armed police – though it would appear that he was let off with a caution.
