    Fair enough - you have convinced me with your completely honest begging line. You could have tarted it up (ie - lied) a bit (had to care for sick relative, amnesia stopped fundraising etc) but you went with the 'it isn't done coz I didn't do it' gambit!

    Respect - my goal for the year is shagged, so I'm happy to support you in achieving yours.

    thanks hun xxx. yep, your right, i've been a bit lazy about getting the link round and suddenly the deadline crept up on me! also, its harder than i thought getting people to sponsor me two years running (although they don't mind sponsoring the race for lifers who "walk" it, year on year). last year it kind of took care of itself and i thought it would this year, but it didn't. so now i'm reduced to begging ;)

    I'm not sure Shaun, i sponsored someone else earlier and i didn't see an option for that, but i wasn't looking for it. i've just accessed my own account but i can't find anything on there to say you can. i can only find credit card stuff. sorry :angry:

    Not sure, didn't seem to give me that option.

    Anyway best of luck buggi, 300 miles is a long way and a big goal (well I think so anyway).
