A Begging Letter

Postby Pete Cooper » Wed Jan 08, 2014 1:55 pm

I have signed up to do a Dryathlon - no alcohol for the whole of January - the idea is to raise some support for Cancer Research UK. This is a worthwhile cause as most of us will know of people who have suffered because of cancer so any support would be greatly appreciated.
So far I have found it harder than I anticipated. I daren't drink during the week as I have to get up for work so my drinking for at least the last year has been concentrated into weekends and last weekend, my first drink free for quite a while, was really hard - and I have 3 more to get through :shock:
Anyway if anybody would like to support me this link will take you to the appropriate page:

Thank you.

Um, just as a matter of interest you seem to have two different justgiving pages running at the same time. :?:

The link should only take you to the current one - I have had a few others over the years - including one from the Dryathlon last year.

Confusion as you have two different links in your post.

Best
