This year I’m taking part in the Staines 10K on 16th May 2010 to raise money for The Macular Disease Society and I am running the whole race in a Shirt Of Hurt to further boost funds. This idea came from Danny Baker for Sports Relief where you wear your sports rivals top usually only for a few minutes but for me it will be for at least an hour. Being a lifelong Stoke City supporter it had to be that ‘other’ team in Stoke, Port Vale.
The Shirt of Hurt…
You can help either by giving a donation, a pound makes all the difference especially if you can add Gift Aid.
Another great way to help is to publicise the work of the Macular Disease Society www.maculardisease.org
It’s easy to donate online with a credit or debit card – just go to my JustGiving page: http://www.justgiving.com/staines2010
(JustGiving sends your donation straight to The Macular Disease Society and automatically reclaims Gift Aid if you’re a UK taxpayer)
I hope you’ll join me in supporting The Macular Disease Society.
The Macular Disease Society aims to build confidence and independence for those with central vision impairment. We are the only UK charity dedicated to helping people with macular degeneration.
Please leave a message of support to get me around the race and/or leave abuse for Port Vale 🙂
Good luck boyo, well done.
Good luck and all the best with the fundraising, I believe it’s the right call that you’re not running around the Potteries in a top from the other side.
