SPONSORED WALK

I’ve decided to join a Sponsored Walk in aid of The Poppy Appeal. It’s a 13 mile walk from Rhos-on-Sea to the Arena in Rhly. I’m part of a team set-up by Colwyn Bay Town Council, accompanying me will be “Pig” my dog, he’s coming along to keep an eye on me.
The Poppy Appeal isn’t just about soldiers from the World Wars, it’s about all of our servicemen past and present and of our support and gratitude for their service and sacrifice. If any of you feel you would like to sponsor either “Pig” or myself then please feel free to contact me. You may not agree with all I say or do but this isn’t about me; it’s for those brave men and women who, in some cases, paid the ultimate price for our safety and security.

I agree with most of what you say. But consider this stroll as a theraputic exercise, in your case, with your bad back, strap on the old 78lb standard army pack,get your cobbley wobblies polished and march off. Its a mere stroll. I cant sponsor you with cash, you know it all goes to the cause. Good luck and dont forget your kidneys bottles and your mosquito repellant.

Councillor Blog,
No; you are not the only one, I suppose this is where you get your own back for my comments on your blog, but as of now Pig has two more sponsors than I have.
