Soul Boys Raising Money for Motor Neurone Disease.

Soul Boys Raising Money for Motor Neurone Disease. cover

In April 2015 our very good friend Paul Thrower was diagnosed with MND. This is a particularly random illness which strikes without warning and for no real reason. As you'll remember the ice bucket challenges have dramatically raised awareness, but there still needs to be far more research into how & why this disease works.Paul is facing this disease with great humour & bravery in his usual pant swinging & retro sock style, which we all know is part of his character!

On the 12th Dec 2015 whilst having a few pints at "Seriously Soulful" in Bristol, John Pearson, Chris Anderton & Dave Lucas had the brilliant idea of cycling for MND awareness from Dab of Soul Nantwich to Seriously Soulful Bristol.The event will be over 2 days (13th-14th May 2016) covering 140 miles. Chris Anderton, Ian Bulloch, Dave Lucas, Steve McColgan, John Pearson, Jack Phillips, Kev Rodgers, Steve Wagstaff & Phil Wainwright are the Soulful lycra clad participants. 

To promote further awareness & research we very much appreciate your donations through JustGiving, by doing this you are potentially saving someone's life in the future.All the team would like to thank you so much for every penny donated for a Dab of Seriously Soulful Money for MND Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity. So it’s the most efficient way to donate – saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

I'll have a pint of cold cider firmly fixed in my mind as I attempt the climb up to The Wrekin on day one.

All donations, however small are greatly appreciated as MND needs research and development to find a cure.

Best regards

Johnny

Great idea and if you need any more riders I'll be happy to hop on the bike & see what I can help raise! I've only had the pleasure of meeting Paul in recent years...such a friendly and happy person, not to mention amazing taste in soul..a good few of us truly blown away again by his choices in Spain last year. All the best, Steve.

Thanks for the offer Steve but we are up to our limit before we need to inform  the police etc. 

Paul is a top bloke...that is not in doubt. Just glad we can do a bit to help out!

Appreciate your support mate.
