    Hey it's very kind of you Crippen. Me personally is sponsoring mentally ill homeless childern via Olga Havel's (yeah, the former wife of Czech president Havel - she died on cancer in '97) Good Will Comitee. I donate some 1000,- Czk each year. That's all I'm able to do, since I don't have a regular income. So sorry, I cannot help you in this (even if I could, the money would be very low and that wouldn't be a valuable contribution at all... :( ). I wish you good luck in this "project" - you're a very kind person. :)

    Cheers,
    Pisis

    Hey no worries Pisis. I would never expect anything from anyone honey, but thought I would ask, trust me I could not ask if it were for myself, but I thought I would chance asking (my toes curled up as I did it... but still).

    Thank you so much to those that have sponsored me and to those who have wished me well.
    Not only have you helped financially, but you have given me a boost (which I needed) so cheers for that too :D

    Hey ...anyone up for doing the London Marathon with me next year? choose your own charity...Ive already picked mine (and may have to walk a fair bit too) :lol: :lol: :rolleyes:

    I used to do a lot of charity raft races Cripps but now I just donate rather than participate I would have no trouble walking the marathon as I spend most of my working life walking from one place to another but I think after a few miles I'd be needing resuss if I ran it .
    I did have a plan a couple of years ago to do some sponsored pole sitting in the Thames estuary for a week in aid of the RNLI but the missus said she wasnt prepared to miss her weeks holiday to watch me sitting up the top of a telegraph pole in the mud so I just signed up as a Shoreline member instead but its a regular donation so every bit helps.
