Willow Foundation

We fulfil unforgettable Special Days to support seriously ill 16 - 40 year olds

Story

In October this year I will turn 70.  I have been lucky to have enjoyed many football triumphs, most notably my greatest year in 1970/71 when Arsenal won 'The Double'.  So how should I celebrate this my 70th/71st year?  By following my heart and doing something challenging to support the Willow Foundation, the national charity I set up with my wife, Megs, in memory of our daughter, Anna. 

 

On 18 April I will mark my 70th birthday by taking on the greatest physical challenge of my life.  I aim to cycle 500 miles from London to Newcastle via every Premier League football club in the UK followed by a visit to Hampden Park, the national stadium in my Scottish homeland where I made my international debut.  Throughout the challenge I plan to increase awareness of the needs of seriously ill 16 to 40 year olds and raise a significant amount of money to fund Willow’s work.

 

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

 

Many thanks and I hope you feel able to support me.

 

With love and best wishes
