At the beginning of July, MNC Director Sara Guiel attended a reception at the House of Commons in London to celebrate talented women in the workplace. Sara was on her way to listen to the inspiring speakers including Laura Ferris MP, Jess Phillips MP, Sonya Barlow, Mims Davies MP and Nicki Lyons when who should she bump into but none other than the one and only NIcky Chisholm!
It was an excellent opportunity to catch up with Nicky and find out what she has been up to since heading off on her own adventure away from My Networking Club.
So here’s Nicky to tell you her news:
Whahoo! I’m off on my next adventure – it’s very big, it’s very scary, super remote and absolutely freezing! I’m heading back to the Arctic Circle to raise much need funds for two very special charities. And this time I am going even further north towards to the actual North Pole!
In October 2022 I will travelling to Greenland to take part in “The Coolest Half Marathon on Earth”. It is a huge undertaking and completely out of my comfort zone, I have been dreaming about it for 4 years, planning for over a year and my relentless training has already started.
Money raised will be divided between two charities Safe in Sussex and Chestnut Tree House. I have long been a supporter of both charities and this year my aim is to raise £5000.
This is one ALMIGHTY MISSION and I am going to need your support to get me to the start line AND over the finish line!
MNC Members already know how dedicated and passionate Nicky is when it comes to her fundraising adventures, and of course, she is fundraising for two wonderful charities that are also MNC Members. My Networking Club is right behind Nicky’s Greenland expedition (in terms of marketing support – we’re not going to go and carry her bags across the ice!)
