Story

Hi thanks for visiting this page, My daughter Poppy is 7 and she was diagnosed with a brain tumour 3 years ago, this wonderful charity has created some lifelong memories for all of us, and I want to pay them something back, am not very fit so the best way I could think of was to put myself through the ultimate humiliation of having a Man United Tattoo on my arm that will remain there forever, this will be my only tattoo, I am a lifelong City fan so any United fans who want a laugh please donate, even if its only a small amount, must be worth it for a giggle at a blue, get me to £1500 quid and I'm doing it CITY TILL I DIE

just to be 100% clear, my target is so close that it is now almost unavoidable that i'm having a united tattoo, whats outstanding offline and from another source its happening, the only thing open to question is the design, the highest bidder chooses the design,

Hi Chris, well done. Great thing you've done. Hope the funds keep coming in especially with your international followings! The banter at TJs was quite a few years ago but still good fun!

My parting with £20 must be a lot less painful than your tattoo Chris, but for an antidote please visit Bluemoon & read the 'Not For All The Tea in China' thread.. with very warmest wishes from the US
