    Hi everyone

    Quick update

    Running total (pardon the pun) of nearly £2700!! Doing well and motoring towards a brilliant total for the British Heart Foundation


    Big thanks to all the AVF contributors


    Many of you will have read through my recent thread entitled Farewell To My Friend following the death of my close friend, Roger Hammond, on 11th December 2011.

    In his memory, I am running the 2012 London Marathon with my pal and we have decided to raise funds for the British Heart Foundation - Roger's family's chosen charity. My target is £3,000.

    I will be proud to run in memory of my friend in one of sport's most iconic events. Any donations are welcomed and can be made online :


    Virgin Money Giving | Fundraising | Jacko and Chippy's fundraising page

    Many thanks for looking!

    I've just put a couple of Orange PAYG SIMs up for sale. If they go I'll have payment made directly to your fund-raising page.

    Have a bump, and some dosh.

    Apologies I can't use the gift aid option, any time in the past that I've tried I get problems. I suspect it's because my address is in Ireland, even though I'm a UK taxpayer.

    Goo, have you thought of getting some volunteers and doing a bag packing day etc in a local supermarket? I'm fundraising at the minute too as you know and it's not uncommon to collect about £1000 in a days bag packing. My local Sainsburys is booked solid for over a year for bag packing requests or I'd be in there myself but I know from talking to others how much can be raised like that.

    Think so. We are staying in a hotel near the Barbican theatre so will drive to somewhere off the M1 (from Manchester area) and then get the tube in. When I went to Wembley last year, we stayed in Harrow - maybe somewhere round there or Stanmore??

    Okay - I had it in my head you were staying out East. Don't know much about coming in from the north to the middle - someone might have some advice.
