Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
I'm dragging the old bones round the Great North Run again this year and I hope you can help me raise some money for the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation. You all know who he was, what he was and what he stood for. I was lucky enough to meet him on a number of occasions and he was a man you could never forget. A force of nature, a kindly whirlwind and a wise old owl. I even have my own special Sir Bobby memory - an evening event towards the end of his life when he called me over to sit next to him and we talked football for half an hour or so, just the two of us. I'll never forget it. He contributed so much to the sport I love and he met every challenge with every inch of his heart and soul. Sir Bobby's Foundation is a fitting legacy and another battle he was determined we will win.
Incidentally the picture above is of me, standing in the North Sea, soothing my poor aching legs, after last year's GNR. And yes, that is a can of cider. Dark fruits.
