Kaz


(Reposted with the help of Z and no help at all from Blogger!)

I may have mentioned that I'm cycling 175 miles next week across the Pennines on "The Way of the Roses".


It's longer and steeper than last year's C2C Route and I'm not getting any younger, so I thought I'd try and make this one a bit more useful by seeking sponsorship in aid of Ovarian Cancer Action in memory of our much missed Blogger heroine Kaz .


Yes, yes, I know it's a pain in the arse (well it will be after 175 miles in a saddle) but it's a good cause!


If you'd like to pop in a small donation, however small, please nip over to here:

If you know any Kazfans and can pass on the link to them I'd very much appreciate it.


Thanks for your help


(Thanks to all the brilliant people who have donated so far!)

I got as far as the verifying stage and then it went into melt-down.

Can I send you a cheque?

Scarlet Blue said...

It worked... I don't think my broadband speed could cope with the radio being on at the same time as donating!

Just popped over to the donation site. Thanks for flagging it up, Roger.

Rog said...

You're a Brick Martin! Thanks a lot!

Geoff said...

That's twice I've used my PayPal account in a week! I'd only ever bought The Singing Detective soundtrack before.

We'll be cheering you on, Rog.

Macy said...

Brilliant idea Rog. Suggest you take copious amounts of Battenburg to sustain you!

Rog said...

Macy yer a wee star! Thanks for chipping in.

The donations now include heart attack victims and people who've this week been made redundant after 25 years. I'm humbled by your participation. It is warming my rye and bringing a tear to my cockles!

Thanks for proving that blogging can occasionally hit gold and lift its gaze from its ow navel.

As St Robert Geldof once said "Give us yer folk in money"

Scarlet Blue said...

This is like deja vu... do I have to do three coments again?!

Rog said...

Scarlet: This is like Deja vu ... you look like 1/3 of Banarama

Rog said...

Sandra at the Post Office... thanks so much! It'll be worth it for you to miss me causing a queue out the door for 3 days!

Rosie said...

Take a pillow to sit on. Good luck and we all await the film.

Pat said...

If you would e-mail your address I will send a cheque. I'm afraid I don't do pay -pal etc.

Rog said...

Many thanks Pat - most kind.

Thanks also to Mrs Rine and My Brother who don't have blogs but are good chaps anyway.

Hurry hurry the rest of you --- still time to get some sponsorship going! (see my sidebar)

Pat said...

Just remembered my Mum did the coast to coast on foot. She also did the Pennine Way twice. Sadly I'm more like my father. I hope you have cushioned shorts.

Pete said...

My email address is in my Blogger Profile.

Could you pop me a line and let me know if I can send you a money order as I don't do online donations, etc.

p.s. I'm in Canada so is there still time for the donation to reach you?
