Janets Africa Trek : Photo Competition

Posted by on Jun 5, 2011 in Blog | 0 comments

MattsCanvas is proud to sponsor Janet’s Photo Competition and her trek through Africa to raise money for Breast Cancer Care.

Please read on to learn more about Janet’s inspiring story.

My name is Janet, I’m 50 years old and I live in Scotland. That’s me pictured above. This photograph was taken just before breast cancer interrupted my life. Breast Cancer Care have supported me throughout the 22 months of my treatment with information, advice and practical help. I had my last treatment on 28th December and now I want to do something to make sure they can help the many thousands of other women (and men ) who will be diagnosed each year. Walking is something even I can do, so, in November 2011, I will be trekking in South Africa. I have pledged to raise a minimum of £3500 for Breast Cancer Care and need to raise this amount by July 2011. This will be a challenge, but one I’m looking forward to. Not least because I’ll be trekking through some of the most dramatic scenery on Earth, and hope to take some pictures – and that gave me an idea for fund raising; a photo competition! To find out more about my fundraising and the photo competition please click here!

To enter the photo competition, please sponsor me on my Just Giving page, including your full name and end your good luck message with “photocomp.” Then, just email your photograph to me at janet.africatrek@yahoo.co.uk.

By sponsoring Janet a minimum of just £2.00, you can take part in the photo competition for your chance to win a 22×32 inch giclee boxed canvas print of your photo. Don’t forget to vote for your favourite photos to win and invite your family and friends to vote too!

Good Luck and thank you for supporting Janet and Breast Cancer Care.
