Fundraising for the Smiley Riley Fund

SSM, 258 Sig Sqn will run the following events in 2017 in support of this fantastic children’s cancer charity. The events, dates and distances are as follows:

Race to the Tower
10/11 June
52 Miles
Race to the King
24/25 June
53 Miles
Race to the Stones
15/16 July
62 Miles

Having already completed multiple ultra-marathons over the past 4 years and raising £10000, this year will be my most challenging physically and mentally.

Why am I doing it?

The Smiley Riley Fund UK was originally set up to help pay for Riley Plant of York to travel to Disneyland USA when he was diagnosed at the age of 16 months in April 2012 with a rare grade 4 ATRT brain tumour.
Unfortunately in July 2012 and half way through his gruelling chemotherapy Riley’s family were given the devastating news that Riley’s cancer had spread to the fluid around his brain and the treatment was failing, Riley’s chemotherapy was then stopped and Riley was given weeks to live.
The support from family, friends and the people of York was outstanding, and local press coverage of Riley’s story melted the toughest of hearts, and donations flooded in. Doctors warned his family not to travel overseas so the fund paid for Riley and his family to have 6 short holidays in the UK creating lasting and beautiful memories of Riley doing simple things such as building sandcastles, which he had never done in his short life. Sadly Riley passed away in September 2012 aged only 21 months surrounded by the love of his family.
Riley’s Grandmother Simone Potter who founded the fund along with the wishes of Riley’s parents Gavin and Linzi continued the fund, to create an ever lasting legacy for Riley. We now work alongside national charity Brainstrust to offer financial support and travelling costs while children are having treatment. Brain tumours kill more children than any other cancer and we are creating much needed co-ordinated support for the children and their families and carers. We also donate to Martin House Children’s Hospice.
Riley was a courageous young boy who has inspired us to continue this fund and help others like him after seeing the devastating effect that cancer and chemotherapy has on children, Riley did lose his battle with cancer but he never lost his smile…..we all love Riley…..share the love…
For any further information contact Simone Potter 07818506476
Reg Charity Number 1149757
To donate online go to placing my name in the optional message box.

Alternatively fill out one of the sponsor forms which are located in my office and various locations around station.

I realise times are hard but can I ask you to dig deep to support this worthwhile cause. Many thanks in advance.

Carillionamey Set To Launch A New Website


Carillionamey will soon be launching a new website to provide a more streamlined and user-friendly experience. Their current website is cluttered and would like to give it a cleaner look. They also want to make it easier for customers to find the information they need.  
However, this website re-launch means that any links or pages you may have bookmarked will no longer work. Once the website has gone live, you'll have to save any new links or bookmark the new pages that you need. A lot of the information we have on the current website has also been updated and some new sections have been added so you'll need to familiarise yourself with these changes as well.
They're committed to ensuring that their performance is continuously improving and want to make sure their website is tailored to customer's needs. They're aiming for the website to go live by the end of May but will have a confirmed go live date next week so keep an eye out for more details.

How To Stop Nuisance Phone Calls

Register with the Telephone Preference Service (TPS) -
it's for people who do not want to receive sales calls and it's free. It is illegal for a company to call you once your name is on this. Of course, companies operating outside the law are not likely to take much notice - but it will cut down the number of calls. 

Complain to the Information Commissioner's Office. The number is 0303 123 1113.

Block calls. Some phones offer this feature or you could use a call blocking device that you plug into your phone. These can not only block certain numbers, but also any that are call "withheld" or "international" - untraceable numbers often used by cold callers. The problem with this is that calls from people you know who are abroad or those who have blocked their own number may also be stopped. And a number of calls from large organisations that go through switchboards, which could include important calls, will also be blocked.

Keep an eye out when ordering goods to make sure you tick the box that says you do not wish to receive information about products from organisations. And be careful, as some of these boxes say tick if you DO wish to hear from other companies. So ticking it without reading it could be the wrong call.
