    Apologies for putting this thread up again and not on the non music thread, but a number of folk who I've seen recently have said they can't access the non music threads.

My youngest Grandchild Amos has recently had his 1st Birthday and a grand little chap he is, however he was born with a rare liver condition known as Billary Atresia and when he was 9 weeks old he had to undergo a 7hr. operation to save his life. The operation was successful, however it is likely that he'll need to have a liver transplant at some stage in the future. He also has to take medication on a daily basis and so has to visit the Children's Liver unit at Leeds General Infirmary regularly.

With this mind Amos's parents, relatives and family friends are planning a series of fundraising activities over the coming weeks and the money raised will be split equally between the Children's Liver Disease Foundation to help with research and for ward 12 & the Children's Liver unit at Leeds General Infirmary.

My contribution to the fundraising is to walk the Dales way, which starts in Ilkley and finishes in Bowness on Windermere in The Lake District and then walk back, a total distance of 165 miles. I'll be doing it over 7 days between July 23rd & 29th.

So I would be greatful if any of you would sponsor me, how much, well I'll leave it up to you to decide, what you can will help.

Please look at the following link for details on how you donate and see what over activities are planned; or send me a PM. I'll also be around at Dent and Cleckheaton, so catch me then.

Thanks for taking time to read this.
