Ingenious donations

7 days to go. After tomorrow's 18 kms walk I am going to tick over at about 5 kms a day until I start at 8 am on 15th May.

I am moving into a higher gear as regards reminding people that this mammoth walk is to raise funds for a very seriously deserving charity - Pancreatic Cancer research.

My fund has received may generous donations. We need much more.

Some people are finding ingenious methods of raising funds for this cause.

Jennifer Mellgren in Grenoble sold English books at a function. She donated 1 Euro from each book sold.

Mike Preston, who has already made a personal donation, organises quizzes in Valbonne, where he lives. The proceeds from his next quiz are earmarked for the fund which has been set up in memory of my late first wife Gaile Heaney. If you are nearby and would like to attend the quiz, here are the details:

Fish & Chips & Quiz Night at Brittain’s Restaurant, Valbonne
