I never properly thanked everyone for donating and helping me reach my goal amount so thankyou :)
Unfortunately my uncle passed away a year ago in january, surrounded by his family. He got to see all the work we all put in fundraising for the future and all the way til the end he pushed and fought to raise awareness and money, even when it took away simply the ability to walk and move around and even be awake for long periods of time. He was fighting and cracking jokes all the way through and I’m proud to have had him as my uncle.

Thankyou to everyone who has got involved and donated. All of your support has meant the world to me. I hope it”s made some small difference. I’ve spoken to so many people who’ve been affected by cancer over the last month , which has only made me more determined to make it to the end. I haven’t done anything huge, but its a personal challenge for me. Its not been easy to avoid something I eat every day but it has been fun. The whole reason behind this has been because of what my Uncle is going through, and I appreciate people being so understanding. This whole blog and whole experience is dedicated to him, his family loves him very much and are with him every step of the way. If there”s anyone left who has yet to donate, I would still be hugely grateful!

There’s a piece in the evening news (The News paper) about my charity veggie month, go take a look. It’s on page 16. Huge thanks to Sam Bannister for setting that up!!

A lot of people have asked how I’m doing it, and isn’t it hard. It is hard, but its only one small thing. Its one small thing that I hope can raise awareness and money to help anyone else who has to go through what my family is. I’ve heard so many times “haven’t you felt like crumbling?” The honest answer is no. My uncle is now in a Hospice and is spending most of his time sleeping. Any time I find it hard I just think of him, or my Dad cousins and Aunt who are all finding this so difficult. I think I can find it in me to do a month of this, if they can endure months of worry.

Slowly getting used to the absence of meat. Its still odd to go out places and not immediately choose meat, but I’m finding more things I like because I’m choosing different things. Went to Costa with Mandy and instead of a steak panini, I got a cheddar tomato and pesto panini, which was so yummy. Need to spread the word a bit though, if I want to hit £200. Anyone who can (and hasn’t already) please donate, I’ll be incredibly grateful.

Almost at the end of my second week and still not touched meat. Had lots of roast dinners just minus the meat, and I don’t really miss it. It’s becoming second nature now, i’m getting so used to not having it.
I think it’s not as difficult as I thought it would be because I’m so committed to the reason i’m doing it. Which makes it incredibly easy.

May go to the Real Burger Kitchen, which I went to the other week with mum as a non veggie. But while I was there I did notice they do a lovely selection of veggie burgers so I’m excited to go and try them! Going to be a real test when Andy and his Dad will be eating the burgers I know are so yummy!
