We are engineers from Siemens traincare depot York, we are currently training to run 5 marathons in 5 days starting at our depot in Manchester and finishing here in York covering a total of 131miles, we are raising money for leukeamia and lymphoma research and have set ourselves a target of £100 per mile with a grand total of £13,100! We know this is a huge task but are reaching out to the community to hopefully raise awareness and hopefully achieve our fundraising targets if anyone can help raise funds, advice, support in the form of kit first aid etc please feel free to get in touch
Kind regards and thank you in advance

We are trying to circulate our facebook page and get it noticed as we are holding a charity ball to help raise money for Cancer research. We would like to get as many people to 'like' it as possible so that there's more chance of us getting everything we need for the night, more donations etc and also to get the word of the charity ball spread! Please visit our facebook page 'like' and 'share' with your friends http://www.facebook.com/SophsAndMicasRaceForLifePage

York friends ‘The Unbreakables’ are taking on the epic Trailtrekker challenge to raise money for Oxfam. Oxfam’s Trailtrekker challenge is a gruelling 100km hike through the picturesque Yorkshire Dales in 30 hours or less - that’s 30 hours of walking day and night. It's the same distance as two and a half marathons, and same amount of uphill walking as Ben Nevis and Snowdon put together. The challenge takes place in the Yorkshire Dales in June and represents the toughest physical challenge any of them have ever attempted. The Unbreakables consists of IT professionals Steve Cooper, Greg Reynolds and Gemma Robinson-Wilson, and musician Casee Wilson with support from support team leader Wendy Reynolds and Rob Ineson. The team have so far raised £220 of the £1,800 target for Oxfam and need your support and donations. They would particularly like to get local businesses involved with sponsorship.
The team have a website and blog at www.100kmofpain.com which provides updates on training and preparation as well as a link to their donation page www.justgiving.com/trailtrekker2013. They will also be tweeting progress updates from @4Unbreakables before and during the event.

Peter Pan Nursery is an Ofsted registered, charity funded nursery for children under 5 with additional needs. We are so busy at the moment that we now have a waiting list for children who really would benefit from a placement with us. We are greatly in need of new volunteers to come and play with our children. We are open Tuesday to Friday 9.15am - 1pm term time only. No experience is necessary but you would need to complete a CRB, this is free of charge and we would organise that.

Have you ever wondered how to lead the perfect life?
A group of 7 film makers from the University of York have been green lit to produce a short film for our final year university project. It's a big project and we have big ambitions! We will be filming across Scarborough and York and are lucky enough to have access to some state of the art equipment, including Sony F3 Cameras and a Red Epic as well as fantastic post-production facilities.
We are now looking for funding to help cover everything, from actors to transport and location. Any amount will help us in achieving what we are hoping will be a wonderful, exciting, British drama.
The film, called 'A Life Like Mine' centres around Adrian Dell, A successful life coach leading the perfect life. If you would like to help us out by donating or just want to find out more about the project then please check out our Indigogo page. There are even some perks for those who donate!

Cub Scout leader needed for Wheldrake cubs. Due to the standing down of two leaders we are desperately needing at least one cub leader to run Wheldrake cubs for a couple of hours on a Tuesday night. If we are unable to find a new leader then unfortunately the pack would have to close disappointing a lot of children in the village. Any more details needed please contact jess wilson on email@example.com
