Hello - thanks for visiting my JustGiving page.

I did the Great North Run (13.1 miles) as Derby captain Robbie Savage(!!!) so the British Red Cross can help people in crisis at home and overseas (floods, terrorist attacks, earthquakes, volcanos etc).   Fin time 1hr 30mins 57 secs. First becostumed person home I think

Check out

Get me to £2000 and I'll do the Robin Hood Half through the streets of Nottingham as Savage! Get me to £3000 and I'll go to Forest v Millwall the day before as Savage !! LOL

Here's the original plan...Sponsor me and choose what I wear to run it in! As long as I raise over £800, the outfit with most money pledged will WIN!* I will wear whatever feasible outfit wins. No questions asked. Get sponsoring. Get choosing**

Choose from the following top suggestions so far:

- Derby County FC captain Robbie Savage (I'm a lifelong Forest fan and season ticket holder)

- Animal costume - Superhero costume - Top hat & tails - Rocky Horror outfit - Angel of the North - Speedos - Hotpants & Frankie Says RELAX T-shirt -


Send this to your contacts and campaign for your costume of choice!
