Elmbridge 10K this weekend :)

My second 10K of 2012 is this weekend and once again I will be donning my Mr Men running vest in aid of Children with Cancer UK. To date I have raised £422 and I have at least another £20 pledged should I finish it in under one hour (the last time I did a 10K in under an hour was back in the late 90’s!). Any help you can give in plugging my fundraising page would be much appreciated:www.justgiving.com/stokie2012

Those kind folk at the charity also sent me a poncho in the post for race day although hopefully it will stay dry. It is a sizable field with 716 entrants and the course takes in the Thames as well the back of the local Tescos.

I am also continuing my auctions of signed items kindly donated by celebrities, comedians, sports people & musicians raising funds for the Make-A-Wish Foundation UK. To date I have raised £455 with recent signed items from John Bishop, Hawkwind and Ken Dodd. Any help on getting signed items much appreciated.

Signed Ken Dodd DVD & Brian Blessed CD charity auctions

Big thanks to Ken Dodd for kindly donating a signed DVD which you can bid on here. Also he sent a lovely letter and a signed photo for myself – a real treat as I have been a longtime fan. If you get a chance do go and see him live as he is very funny and good value as his shows tend to last for at least 3-4 hours 🙂

Also a signed copy of Brian Blessed’s performance on ITV’s ‘Stars In Their Eyes’ when he performed as Pavarotti. You can bid on this here
