Like many of you I have been addicted to the tracker this week, as one person has said it is far better than the football. But I have also developed a minor addiction to what Steve's Just Giving pages are saying. I am thrilled by the amounts that have been donated and I want to take this opportunity to say thank you to each and everyone of you that has made a donation in recognition of Steve's amazing endeavours this week.
Samson Centre plays a key part in my life, delivering physiotherapy and
a host of other therapies and support, and keeping me as active and
mobile as possible. It's annual running costs are in the region of £200k
so this kind of donation total makes a big difference to the centre.
The MS society and it's branch network around the country ensures that
all patients have access to the support and information they need to
manage life with MS, and all donations are key to allowing this to
The other pleasure I have got from the Just Giving
pages is reading all the donation messages. The superlatives of awesome,
amazing, incredible, inspirational, astonishing, phenomenal and a whole
host of others are written with such regularity that I hope Steve
eventually gets round to reading some of them too and see what an impact
this last week has had on so many people.
Thank you aswell to
everyone that has been part of the support crew that has been with Steve
this week. A massive team effort I know and I am sure Steve will be the
first to recognise that. Well done in particular to Emma for being
there every step of the way this week with Steve whilst also trying to
maintain a normal (?) family life - don't know how you have done it.
congratulations to my brother (though as I write this he has
approximately 3 hours left on the fells) on an achievement that deserves
all the recognition it is getting, and finally thank you to Steve for
choosing to support my two MS charities. Very proud of you bruv!
