James Newbury Challenge 2021

James Newbury Challenge 2021

We're Taking it On for Pancreatic Cancer UK

The James Newbury Challenge (JNC) is in its 2nd year! A year on from James losing his battle with Pancreatic Cancer, the JNC 2021 is our way of remembering and celebrating our dear friend and loving husband to Sharon, James Newbury. 

All those who knew James would know he loved a challenge so we are all setting ourselves some for this year and hoping to raise a little money at the same time for this very worthy cause. 

There are 2 ways you can support the JNC 2021:

1. Donate (whatever amount you can) to show your support for everyone doing different challenges,

and/or 

2. Set yourself a challenge to complete before the end of November, donate £24 to 'enter' to JNC2021, click 'join us' on this page, let us know your challenge and invite others to sponsor you using this fundraising page.
