Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I am raising money as Chairman of The Benevolent; The Drinks Industry Charity. We give financial, emotional and practical support to those in our trade who are suffering from illness, disability or when an individual’s quality of life, through no fault of their own, has been devastated by sad and unforeseen circumstances. You can read about several of these case studies by clicking here.

I am helping all of our current and potential beneficiaries around the country by undertaking the Around the Grounds Challengeto visit all 91 football league grounds over a 14 day period without using a car. When I say 'Challenge' it is intended to be just that! My journey between the grounds will be made using a combination of train, tram and pedal-bike.  The route is planned and is available for you to have a look at here. I start at Norwich City FC on Monday May 12th and finish at my beloved Crystal Palace on Sunday May 25th. 

You can read more detail about the Challenge here but if you only have time to look at this page please be kind enough to donate generously to my effort.
