Tonight I'm rattling a begging bowl for charity. The two charities are the Antony Nolan Trust and Tuberous Sclerosis Association. My brother Peter is in Canada at this time after flying out there last week from the UK to run in the 6633 Ultra which starts on the 22nd March 2013 and if you want to know what this is click on this link www.6633ultra.com/index.html and you will see what my brother is about to undertake and he will hope to finish on Good Friday 29th March 2013. You see my brother has had a son with leukemia and his life was saved by a donor of bone marrow through the Antony Nolan Trust and whilst this son was under going treatment for leukemia his wife and him found out one of their other children has Tuberous Sclerosis and if you go on this link www.tuberous-sclerosis.org you can find out more about this condition. They have five children and they have held it all together through the hardest of times and balancing all this with running a successful business which they started from scratch. Peter turned 49 on the 13th March and has had cartilage surgery on both knees from wear and tear from his rugby days and a few months ago he was thinking his knees might of had it but he wants to give something back and a little of this will be a personal goal for him. Peter has set up a page for each charity on Just Giving and if you click on this link www.justgiving.com/Peter-Hawkins3 you can read more about what he is doing and if you would like to help get him up to his target of £500 for each charity when he sets of on the 22nd March 2013, you can donate on that page, I think that is going to give him a real boost before setting off, as his wife has told us, "He is feeling a little nervous right now." So please if you could spare a little for these charities we would be much obliged.
Begging bowl put down now , as below we have photo's and email update on Bayley from Glenda. Bayley turned one year old on the 19th March and is from Millie's litter with dad being Reggie. Thanks Glenda for letting me know all is going on so well with your Bayley, he certainly is a chip off the old block.
I thought I would give you an update on how Bayley is doing, one year on. He has brought us such happiness and is beautiful boy not only in looks but also in nature. He is a very good and clever little dog, and is very eager to please. I am not sure if he is fully grown yet. A few weeks ago I had him neutered, and my friends and family were concerned that it would change his personality. I am pleased to say, there has been no change, maybe he is a little more cuddly. He’s trying to sit on me as type this......... I still look forward to reading your blog and can’t wait to hear your decision about any new puppies. I enclose some photos for you taken at the week-end. I hope your Mum is on the mend and the family are all well now.
Keep up the good work.
Glenda & Barry xx
