As many of you are aware my 19yr daughter Rosie passed away suddenly and unexpectedly last September and to cut a long story short my wife now finds herself running the London Marthathon (her first ever marathon) this coming Sunday on behalf of Young Epilepsy UK

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-2429876/Rosie-Carter-Lively-caring-teenager-19-dies-sleep-family-trip.html


Whilst I understand we may all have other charities close to our heart I'm hoping that a few kind members of this board would be kind enough to make a small donation using the link below?

My reasons for coming to the board with this request are three-fold

1. My wife has often complained about the time I spend on this board and the futility of chatting to people I've never met
2. I would like her to see that donations have been made to this cause as a result of kindness shown by a few Leeds Utd fans (so please mention this fact on the justgiving site if you are kind enough to donate)
3. Finally, if any members of the Leeds Utd squad should happen to read this site then I would welcome any contributions from you also! :-)....probably the least you can do after the sh1t we've all had to put up with this season..

I appreciate this board was not set up for this type of thing but this is something incredibly personal to me and my family and so I hope you'll forgive me

 Thx in advace & Kind Regards. Des

Is Colgate still doing the run? If so, show your wife his picture, so she can trip him up.

Thx SG...Actually I don't mind it simply because it creates awareness (and that really is our main driver at the moment) even though I hate both it and a number of similar articles and links. Funny though. I've learned how sly the press can be as a result of this, even going so far as to pay friends etc for comments, access to facebook etc as well as trying to doorstep us. I really appreciate the offer though [thumb]

Anyway SG, Thackers, Moose, Wildwood and even that trendy left-leaning but Tory wannabe  Pistol - I just wanted to say thx for your kind words & donations. My wife has been on the phone already this morning & is so appreciative of your generosity...I honestly cannot thank you enough

Incredibly tragic - I'm really sorry for your family, and can only imagine at the press intrusion compounding matters too.
Donation made - best wishes!

A pleasure to donate Dessip and as always, thoughts with you all on Sunday and beyond.  

I've tweeted out the links as well so maybe get a few more through Twitter.

Well Done to your wife Des.

Rosie is being remembered in a very special way.

Even as I type there is a tear in my eye. (I am a big softie really!)

Donation made and hope Emma exceeds her target.

Political leanings mean diddly squat relative to things such as this, we're all human beings.  I hope your family has been able to stay strong through it all, once again sincerest sympathies from all at Casa Pistol.

I think you can still donate a few weeks after the event

Brian, Rob & Rich - just spoken to my wife and she is both astounded and so highly appreciative

For people we've never met to contribute in this way is a very special thing indeed. Thank you so much for your supportive comments and incredible generosity..

Dessip,

I'm guessing that your missus isn't doing it for the official time, so I'll add an extra tenner if you can post on here a pic of her in front of the Rose Of Denmark pub on the Woolwich Road.

Deal?

SG - I've mentioned it and she'll give it a go but she is aiming for a time (4h30) unless she gets injured - she's carrying a bad foot at the moment

BF - I mentioned the idea of her doing it naked but frankly after 4 kids her 'rat' has seen better days. That said I have a 4 day old ham sandwich from Lidls that has started to curl and rot at the edges - that may create pretty much the same affect and on reflection better reflect your primary lust in life...

Congrats Mrs Dessip.  Great effort

Dessip
Thx for sharing those SG...much appreciated

I guess we can un-sticky this thread now but I just wanted to let you know that Emma has so far raised £13.5k approx for Young Epilepsy and despite never having run one before in her life, she is now planning to participate in the New York one this coming November and also London again next year. in fact I've even said I'll give her a sizeable donation if she runs it as Baroness Thatcher with either 'Fcuk You Pistol White you Communist Cnut' emblazoned on her back or carrying a large placard that says 'All overweight teachers are overpaid paedos'

Anyway she's giving it some thought...

As you can appreciate it as been an incredibly difficult last 6 months and I know there will still be many more dark times ahead. That said this board, and the people on it, have always been a healthy distraction for me and much of the banter has never failed to help me raise a smile at times when I often needed it the most

I'm not a fan of social networking really (don't do twitter, Facebook, Instagram etc) but this site has offered me far more than I will ever be able to give it so thx again to all the mods and the other personalities (be it new signings or first-teamers) who all contribute so regularly

Again, and on behalf of me and my family - we have all appreciated your kind words, support and generosity

I strongly recommend against the Thatcher idea, we don't want her getting attacked on the way around.

Can she put the teacher comment on her ar-se?

Seriously, really well done to her. Personally I could break sweat driving 26 miles, so it's an amazing achievement : sm46:

A very impressive effort and well done, I do hope we can support in other ways and that things become easier bit by bit I can nvere imagine how you feel, but we can pull together as we always do when someones chips are very much down. The only fans in the country or even internationally that probably can have this effect on such a board MOT
