At a time of festive cheer and giving, VU Limited are thrilled to announce that Victor Ubogu has achieved the '1 in 5' goal he set himself in 2011 – no, not just achieved it, but smashed his quest to raise £1,000,000 over 5 years through various fundraising efforts.
A staggering £1.2 million has been raised and donated to a variety of amazing causes, mainly assisting young people through times of suffering and ill health. Nordoff Robbins, Teenage Cancer Trust, Childline, Afrikids, Walking with the Wounded, Wooden Spoon, Sparks, Abigail's Footsteps, Prince's Trust, Barnardo's and the RFU's Injured Players Foundation are among those who've benefitted from VU Ltd's fundraising dinners and events and Victor's personal sweat and tears as he cycles hundreds of miles in far flung places.
We are deeply conscious that this money could not have been raised without the support of our kind and generous friends and guests. We know you dig deep time and time again, in addition to your endless contributions outside of VU. Your offers of prizes, bids in the auction, hours of standing with your hands on your head or tail, and direct donations form this gift we hope to continue to give. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Although the goal has been achieved, this does in no way mean the game is over. VU Limited pledges to continue the effort as long and as diligently as we can. On January 20th 2016, we host the 21st Nordoff Robbins Rugby Dinner at Grosvenor House where we look forward to raising hundreds of thousands of pounds to help people through the aid of music therapy. We look forward to seeing you there. Meanwhile, we send our best wishes to you all for a happy and healthy Christmas and prosperous 2016, when we hope to continue changing lives together.
