OK. 15 years ago this week, I cycled from the Riverside stadium to St Mary’s to raise money for the Neurological unit at Southampton General hospital. This was in memory of Richard Bowler, a young 14 year old lad who sadly collapsed and died from a Brain haemorrhage whilst at football practice. This sparked a group of Saints and Pompey fans to do something positive and support a worthwhile cause.

To mark the 15th anniversary of the event, 2 of the original crew, myself and Pompey fan Neil Westbrook are going to ride twice the distance durning May. For me this is quite challenging given i have been off the bike for nearly 12 months after daughters illness and then Mrs MoTs BC etc, so I a a huge tub of lard right now, so every pedal is torture as I try and get my huge fucking bulk to propel itself forward.
To support this misery and hopefully raise some cash for the Hospital, you can follow the link below and read more about it and if feeling generous donate a few quid.
@saintbletch, any chance of a pin on this one for the month of May?
Thanks in advance even for the smallest of contributions
