Please support me through the trials of vegetarianism this November, as I raise money for Cancer Research UK.

In memory of

Andy Nisbet

Thank you first and foremost for taking the time to visit my Cancer Research UK Veg Pledge page. I have asked for the money I raise this month to help fund life-saving research into rare cancers.

This November, I have become vegetarian to raise money for Cancer Research UK, because despite my best efforts, I can't grow a good mustache. In order to persuade you lovely lot to donate, I've decided to make it as difficult for myself as possible and will forego eating fish for the month, as well as meat.
For those of you suggesting that Veganism would be the real challenge, I politely ask you to 'sod off'- The layer of cheese on my vegetables is the only thing keeping me going, and surely the only thing worse than fake meat is fake cheese.

A few weeks ago, whilst watching the BBC news on a muted loop from my desk, I realised that the world's going to pot with environmental (as well as political) disasters. Impassioned, I Googled 'WHT CAN I DO T'HELP THE ENVOROMENT', and one of the first answers was 'eat less meat and dairy', which was annoying as I was kind of hoping it would just say 'express your annoyance on social media'.

It's been a while since I set myself a personal challenge (what gym?), so I thought this seemed a good way to meet both my aims AND make a little Christmas donation to Cancer Research, at a time when special people are no longer here to receive gifts. Dad himself went vegetarian for a year to win a bet, so I have been suitably forewarned about KFC-pangs.

If you would like and are able to support this wonderful cause by putting a pound into the pot, your input would be much appreciated. However, everyone has their own goals and responsibilities at this time of year, so if you would rather support me by sending some tried and tested recipes my way (or not tried and tested, that I could guinea-pig for you), they would be just as gratefully received. Because I don't know how many other ways I can stuff a pepper.

Thanks again, Carly x

Thank you soooo much to everyone who has already given so generously, it really is humbling. I can't believe I have hit and surpassed my target so quickly, and I'll be delighted to hand over such a lovely amount of money to Cancer Research in time for Christmas. I already knew how wonderful you all are, but this really is an incredibly selfless thing you have all done, so near to the busy and expensive festive period. I'm forever grateful for your support :) One week to go! x
