May fundraising update

Well just under a week until race day and the Staines 10K, which I am running in aid of the Children with Cancer UK charity. The total raised to date stands at £243 – thanks to all for sponsoring me and plugging my fundraising. I think I am ready for the run, although training seems to get harder every time I do one of these runs 🙂

The Fifty Fifty charity auctions of signed items from bands/sports people/authors/celebrities has now topped £300 with an impressive £46 coming from an old tour jacket as worn by keyboards player John Sinclair on stage with Ozzy Osbourne. All funds go to the Make-A-Wish Foundation UK charity:

I am always after signed items so ant contacts most welcome. Online now is a signed photo of comedian & West Brom fan Frank Skinner. Coming soon signed goodies from John Bishop and now online a signed copy of the excellent debut album from rising blues rocker Chantel McGregor.

Thanks as ever for your support and I am off to iron my Mr Men top for Sunday…

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 Steve Winwood item for Children with Cancer UK

A signed Steve Winwood guitar scratch plate is online here raising funds for Children with Cancer UK. Also look out for soon a very kind donation from former Ozzy/Uriah Heep keyboards player John Sinclair, a tour jacket he wore when onstage with Ozzy in the 80’s! More details soon.

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.
