Leanne and Stuart’s NHS Charities Together fundraiser challenge

Oh my goodness how awesome are my couples? 18 April should have been Leanne and Stuart’s wedding day at The Sun Pavilion in Harrogate. Sadly due to Covid-19 this couldn’t happen. But they did not want to sit around all day feeling sad so they asked their friends and family to set them different challenges to do during the day and raise some money for NHS Charities Together at the same time.

Anyone setting a challenge had to also pledge how much they would give if they completed the challenge. The couple stated that for any challenge not completed, they would donate £1 to the cause. NHS Charities Together supports NHS staff and volunteers caring for Covid-19 patients run by Association of NHS Charities.

Just a few of the challenges Leanne and Stuart were set included making a mini wedding cake, dress up as each other and go for a walk and dance to the chorus of Bootilicious, dress up as gnomes and stand in the front garden for two minutes and, my personal highlight, a cheesy duet of ‘Don’t Go Breaking My Heart’.

Here are some photos from their engagement shoot from what seems an eternity ago, way back in March…
