Tour Videos!

Hi all

It just occurred to me that I hadn't yet posted the two part film we made of our event!

Here they are!

Warning there is some mild swearing and a lot of footage of football stadia, great if you love football, maybe less so if not!

Part 1

Part 2

If you enjoyed watching, it would be great if you could drop a £1 into our justgiving, thanks for your support!

Tour Video Teaser!

OK so it's taking a while to edit over 9 hrs of footage of our trip to just an hour or so, we want it to accurately reflect our experience too.

For now though here's a short clip of our fateful breakdown whilst a game was actually going on at Colchester Utd on Day 3.

What followed was a pretty stressful few hours as we tried to somehow keep the trip going with only 5 minutes remaining before the car hire shut for the weekend, 1 credit card between 4 of us and still 6 grounds and the whole of East Anglia to cover and it was only 3pm!

What's more we had to send a team member back to Bristol on a max 53 mph truck to fetch another car and he was held up at a service station for 2 hours waiting to get picked up with the task of rejoining the team at the end of the leg at Milton Keynes at 2am!

Anyway, here it is, much more to follow.....

It's a very competitive market and we've decided to push for awareness over donations -we need to reach as many people as possible to raise the profile of this illness and the need for proper research and funding.

Programme / website entry is the best way we can do this and we'll aim to get in as many as possible!

Do you know anyone at the clubs who haven't come back yet?  Can you give them a nudge for us?!
