Another £50 raised for the Make-A-Wish Foundation UK

The John Sinclair tour jacket as worn by him on stage with Ozzy Osbourne in the late 80’s went for £46.45, add to this the Limahl signed copy of ‘Never Ending Story’ (still a live auction and currently at £4.00) means another £50 raised. Mind you hopefully the DVD will top at least £10 and thanks to former Radio 1 DJ Mike Read for kindly retweeting the Limahl Ebay link.

Been busy trying to drum up some more signed items for auction and hopefully will have some more soon.

Signed ‘Neverending Story’ DVD

The signed CD raised £15 so hopefully this DVD can top that figure.

Thanks to ‘Record Collector’ and their email newsletter for a plug for the John Sinclair tour jacket which finishes this weekend. It is currently at £21.00, a bargain price for a piece of rock ‘n’ roll history. Sign up for the ‘Record Collector’ newsletter here

Running wise I completed another Park Run on Saturday, again 33 minutes for 5KM. Enjoyed this one more than last weeks! I have signed up with Jogging Buddy a website that links you up with fellow runners/joggers locally. I have two buddies so far and be nice to have a couple of running buddies as company keeps me running quicker.
