Excellent news Lee. Shame I'm excluded from it, as there's no way Ollie will be on the road again by February... Sad

I've moved the thread to the social events section, the same as your birthday bash event, as it's more of a 'Lee' event than an SmS exclusive event. I'm sure you won't mind!

Good choice for the charity too. I've supported H4H since they started. The MGF Register have decided to make them their charity for next year too... and I've been thinking of doing the same for SmS! In fact, we're going to get a collection box from them so members can donate wherever the SmS stand go and also at pub meets if anyone has any spare change after buying their grub! Details will be announced at the Christmas meet.

Smudge is ready to go and doesn't need T-Cut or a throttle body... But Ollie isn't, and Lee said only ragtops permitted!

I could always get a lift with you... Rolling Eyes

You mean the lovely grey alcantara is going? What are you doing with the old seats, or have you sold them already?!?!

Yeah, might just take you up on that offer... as long as you don't play that Richard Clayderman and Barry Manilow stuff on your iphone all the way round... Laugh my a**e off!

Nick, would you mind if I unbooked your passenger seat? Unbelievably, my dad has decided to take part and it'll be his first proper club run in the 'F (apart from us going over to Stoneleigh for the MG Show & Spares Day the week before) so it looks like I'm co-piloting for him.

And it seems this is another happy couple that might be going their separate ways... or actually the same way, but seperately... Whatever... Saying nothing else!!!! Rolling Eyes Suspect

Good news Lee and a great amount raised so far. Would have been very easy for the authorities to be obstructive so it's good that they are helping.

For those not attending the run, Help for Heroes is also the chosen charity for Southmids Sportsters generally this year (decided before the MGF Register jumped on the bandwagon!) and so we'll have collecting pots for donations at all of our meetings. We'll also have a stock of the infamous wristbands which can be yours with a minumum donation of £2. Thumbs up

Other news... I sent an email round to my work colleagues this morning telling them about the run and asking if anyone would like to sponsor me for the run. Within an hour, I'd already got £15! So this will be going towards Lee's collection as it's run related. Hopefully I'll be getting more soon. You know how wealthy these GPs are! Laughing

Rich

Edit: Make that £20! £40!
