< Pledge 100 (2021) – Mamie Martin Fund

Pledge 100 (2021)

In 2021 it was 100 years since Mamie and Jack were married and started their new life in Malawi. Pledge100 invited supporters and friends of the Mamie Martin Fund to celebrate 2021 with … well, 100 of anything. Write 100 poems, climb 100 hills. We had some great pledges and stories – thank you all.

Pledge100 was about sharing the Mamie Martin Fund story and having fun. We also hoped to raise some money, but it was not the primary focus. Thanks to everyone who took part and those who supported the pledgers. We raised £9k and engaged lots of new people in the work of the Mamie Martin Fund.

Our first complete pledge!

Mary has walked 100 miles with her family in 2021. What a great way to spend time with family and also help us spread the word about the Mamie Martin Fund. Thank you, Mary!

Shona McAllister was our first pledger – she has run a 5k 100 times this year.

Shona’s connection with the Mamie Martin Fund goes back to her late father, who played in a band with Willie Sinclair, Mamie’s grandson.

They held many fundraisers for MMF and Shona thinks of herself as running these 5Ks in her Dad’s memory.
