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.
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 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!
