    Hello;

    I have a quick question that I hope someone might be able to answer (I did search for this topic to see if it had been covered already and didn't find anything).

    I saw that the Alzheimer's Society is organising a six-day trek along the Great Wall of China for 2015. I noticed that the target fundraising amount is around £3,100. Last year (2014) I raised around half this amount doing various events around the UK for the Alzheimer's Society. Would this count towards my £3,100 total or would I have to start afresh?

    Thanks in advance,

    Keir.

    Hi

    I would suspect that it would not count. It sounds harsh, but in my eyes, your fundraising buys your place.

    I have a similar issue, I would love to take part in another challenge, but due to the fundraising I already do for the society I could never raise amount of money required.

    I could be completely wrong though.

    Have you contacted the fundraising team?

    Thank you for the response :)

    I haven't contacted the fundraising team yet; I will do that! If starting afresh is the case I shall have to get a move on. It took me a fair while to get the £1,500 raised but getting it done by October isn't impossible :)

    I have registered today! To do the Great Wall of China trek! It is a lot of money to raise with only 8months to go but it will be worth it :)

    I have signed up to do the trek in October and I would love to chat to people who are doing it too! Be cool to get to know a few peeps before hand and get fundraising ideas, see how everyone is doing :)
