An excellent start to my year of fundraising for the Cleft Lip And Palate Association (CLAPA), as the guitar lesson & lunch with John Mitchell of It Bites finished at £370. Big thanks to John Mitchell for kindly donating his time for this and all the It Bites fans who bid on this, including the lucky winner.
You can buy It Bites excellent new single ‘Cartoon Graveyard’ on download now.
More charity auctions soon for both CLAPA and the NDCS (National Deaf Children’s Society) including some signed goodies from Dante Fox and a special treat for one of their fan’s at next April’s HRH AOR festival. More details soon.
The guitar lesson/lunch with John Mitchell of It Bites is currently at £370! All proceeds are going to Cleft Lip And Palate Association (CLAPA). If it breaks the £500 that would be amazing.
Thanks again to John Mitchell and the fans currently bidding.
The EBay auction is for a guitar lesson and lunch with JOHN MITCHELL, guitarist/vocalist in IT BITES and also a member of FROST* & ARENA.
The winning bidder will need to make their own way to and from the lunch/guitar lesson in the Reading (Berskshire) area. Date and time TBA between winning bidder and John Mitchell.
100% of the final sale price will support Cleft Lip and Palate Association (CLAPA). The Cleft Lip and Palate Association seeks to reduce the distress often experienced by parents in bringing up a child with a cleft lip and/or palate and to improve the quality of life of those born with clefts.
BIG ‘thank you’ to John Mitchell for this unique experience for one lucky fan!

I will be running the Staines 10K again next year on Sunday May 19th for both my chosen charities – CLAPA and NDCS. I am also looking for an early summer half marathon and my hometown my provide one with the Potters ‘Arf on Sunday June 9th. This will be another big challenge and step up after completing ten miles in this year’s Great South Run. Anyone else know of a good (flat!) half marathon in June/July time in the London/Surrey area or Staffordshire/Cheshire please let me know.
Also looking for any companies and/or bands who’d like to endorse my running and fundraising in anyway. I will for example happily road test say any new confectionary or sweets 🙂
