I visited the teenage cancer ward in the RVI Newcastle just before Christmas and was inspired to do something for charity by the strength and positivity shown by the boys and girls we met that afternoon. It put loads of things in perspective for me and has made me determined to help in any way i can. Just for Kids seemed the ideal charity to donate to as every penny of the money raised goes directly to kids in the North East and is not lost in other areas. Having lived in the region for ten years, I now consider myself to be an adopted Geordie, and if i can do something positive to help local children then it will fulfil my desire to get involved properly in raising funds for an excellent charity.
I will be cycling to every Premiership Rugby Stadium across the country, including Twickenham! To find out more regarding my itinerary, then please visit www.everythingrugby.com. In more simple terms, this is 550 miles in six nights and seven days! Sometimes i wonder what i have let myself in for....
Also, everyone who donates is put into a draw to win a premiership rugby ball signed by me and every other player i meet along the way!
Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to sponsor me: Metro Radio Group Charity Appeal - Just for Kids will receive your money faster and, if you are a UK taxpayer, an extra 28% in tax will be added to your gift at no cost to you.
So please sponsor me now!
Many thanks for your support.
