Thanks to TV chef legend Ainsley Harriott for donating a signed photo raising funds for the NDCS (National Deaf Children’s Society). You can bid on it here
More signed goodies soon 🙂
In running news I have signed up for my first race of 2013 with the Staines 10K on Sunday May 19th. This one I will be running for the NDCS and then I plan to do another 10K in July for CLAPA and then all being well a half-marathon in August/September time.
I am also looking at getting some sigend items related to Stoke City FC who celebrate their 150th anniversary this year. My idea is to raise at least £150 from related Stoke City items for the two charities.
BIG thanks to Dante Fox for kindly donating two CD’s and t-shirt. You can bid on them here:
CD for CLAPA
CD & t-shirt for NDCS
The running is going okay, I tend to do one to two runs per week over the winter and then ramp it up in February/March time. I am very grateful to anonymous donations on JustGiving for my fundraising for CLAPA. Truly humbling and now means over £400 has been raised for CLAPA 🙂
Well the fundraising for CLAPA is off to a good start with £370 already raised thanks to John Micthell (It Bites) and the winning bidder for a guitar lesson & lunch with John Mitchell.
Coming soon will be signed goodies from author Tom Bromley (he has written a series of highly readable books on pop music) and melodic rockers Dante Fox, including a rather special treat for one lucky fan – more details soon.
Also I am very pleased to have a guest blogger who will be writing about their family and in particular their son to raised awareness over cleft lip and palates. More details to follow shortly.
Running wise I am doing the Staines 10K again this year for both charities and planning doing a half mararthon in the summer. Did my first run of the year last night and slightly creaky this morning 🙂
Thanks again for your continued support and wishing you all the best for the coming year and beyond.
