I'm giving up the sweetest of nectars for Macmillan Cancer Support because they helped my mum in her final weeks.

Story

The Palmer family, and friends of ours, lost a very special woman earlier this year. She touched a lot of lives in many ways and I'm missing her a lot at the moment. Rather than wallow in these feelings, I thought I'd use them to do some good, and try and help a charity that helped her.

It's no secret that I'm rather fond of the booze. I love trying a new ale while watching footy with friends, relaxing with a whisky, doing some writing with a wine... A month without any alcohol is, basically, going to be a tough ask for me, so please chuck some dosh at me to ease the pain.

I can imagine mum wondering why on earth I'd want to give up something I enjoy so much, and the truth of it is that I DON'T want to give it up. I do want to do something for her, though, and for the charity that gave her reprieve in her last days, so please be as generous as you can.

Here's a word from Macmillan:

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.Fundraising is hugely important to Macmillan. Without people doing events, running marathons, climbing mountains, and donating in all the other ways that you can, Macmillan wouldn’t exist.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. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs.
