Publicans Clive Mansell and his son Andy, staff, friends and a group of other pioneers hope to be the first to scoot from Lands End to John O'Groats on push scooters in aid of Gift of Sight. Setting off from Lands End at 8.00am on Monday 28th February 2011 the team hope to be in John O'Groats at 4.00pm the following Saturday. More participants are required to scoot, and support in the form of a second minibus, suitable hi-visual clothing, high energy foods and sports drinks would be greatly appreciated. Drivers and organisational help would also be appreciated. The team are seeking budget accommodation for the entire route and a website is being set up so that we can all track progress and donate on line. Donations may be made by telephone or cheque through the Gift of Sight office and card donations may also be used as an alternative way of sponsoring the team. If donating through the University of Southampton please remember to go to 'The Gift of Sight' on the dropdown option. When the team website is set up another giving option will be added.
A meeting will be held at The Queen Inn, Kingsgate Street, Winchester SO23 9PG at 8.30pm on Monday 24th January 2011, when all final arrangements will be discussed. Anyone wishing to take part is welcome to attend.
Please contact Clive Mansell on 07778389325.
