Hilton Hydro in Dunblane where event takes place on 3rd June
Unfortunately my own days are numbered but in the journey I started out on last August, which proved to be a terminal brain tumour, as well as witnessing young people seriously ill, I have been saddened to learn how many young people under 40 die from brain tumours and want to use the little time and influence I still have to encourage awareness and raise money for this important cause.
QThere clearly is a cure but finding it requires time, effort and money. My daughter Sarah along with family and friends are arranging an event at Dunblane Hydro on 3rd June which I hope you can attend or in some way support. There will be various sponsored events and we already have a good number of items for auction but need more to make the day a real success. Time for auction and some of the lots will appear in my next post. In the meantime you can check out the Brain Tumour research web site and donate direct but let myself or Sarah know. you can go to https://www.braintumourresearch.org/ and donate through just giving, gift aid forms are available on the site. Read for yourself the wonderful work being done. As far as I can see it needs to be accelerated and you can also help spread the word. Please let me know if you donate on firstname.lastname@example.org or let Sarah know on email@example.com

A word from Sarah
With the help of Stuart Carruthers and Dunblane Hilton health club, I am organising a spinning and cycling charity event to raise money and awareness for Brain Tumour Research from 9am to 9pm on Saturday the 3rd of June.
There will be a Facebook event page up shortly and we can start getting people signed up for the 12 hour sponsored spinathon and a Hilton to Hilton sponsored road cycle (route tbc).
The idea is to make the event as accessible and fun as possible. There will be a BBQ, music, a raffle, and games for children. You can come and spin for 20 minutes, an hour, 12 hours, or whatever you can manage. You could form a team and relay. You can join the road cycle if you’re up to the challenge. Or you can just come and support the spinners/cyclists and have a fun day out!
At the moment I need help with the following:
If you have a turbo trainer and bike, can you spare them on the 3rd June?
Do you have any ideas for entertainment, or talents you are willing to donate? I already have a couple of face painters, a couple of people who can organise children’s games, and even a massage therapist! Any help with any of those also much appreciated.
Do you know anyone willing to donate raffle prizes?
Do you happen to know any local celebrities who might be up for making an appearance or promoting the event?
