There are a few things I can think of that need to be done:

1/ We need to know what we can and can not do on RW forum. I know ICRAM
is on this.

2/ We need a bank account to hold the money. With two signatories, for
safety and transparency. I don't know if any forumites live near Little Miss Happy,or
ICRAM. Even a couple of forumites near Mick would be good.

3/ For Gift Aid we need people to send an e-mail to me at my e-mail address saying they would like us as a charity to claim the tax on their donation.

This needs to have their name and address on it. It also has to say how much they have donated. I can make an e-mail for people to copy to make it easier. We need to let people know that we can do this if they want
us to and then send the my e-mail address rather than put it on the forum.
This is more secure!

4/ We need to find out what Mick wants to get and how much we need. I know he is looking. We need to keep people posted at all times as to how much has been raised and what is being aimed for.

I think any surplus could go on their running gear. You no what it's like. You could easily spend any excess on a few trainers and a couple of pairs of tops :-) (What about spares for the chair?)

Other stuff will come up as we get going with it.

Cheers for now.

Cheers, Biastai!
Biastai - you have mail #2!


Mick
You have lots to do just being there for Phil and Mrs. I'm sure we can get a chair sorted out. I have to find some way of thanking you for cheering me on at Oldbury last January. I was so impressed that you travelled all that way when you weren't feeling well.

So well done lads keep it up!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi yu Georges dad

I'm there to help you ,

This isn't just about me and phillip

Hi Georges Dad, go for it.

Excellent thread and excellent cause.
As always, well behind Mick'n'Phil. Great to hear something is being done to help you guys.

A couple of questions/suggestions if I may. I think some have been thought of and mentioned already but here goes anyway.

Once a registered charity is set up (i assume that is what you are doing) can you set up a "justgiving" site?
Have a link from micknphils website.
If you do start to get a massive surplus, why not continue the charity in the same vein, helping out those that want to run with sick/disabled people who are not so well off.
With micknphil on board there is wealth of experience and advice there to give to people and to provide the necessary encouragement.

Well done everyone, i have been following this for some time on the Abingdon thread and you can certainly count on a donation from myself. And should you need any other support I am willing to help also. Not sure what i can do but the offer is there.

Great stuff guys - think I saw you at Draycote ultra last year?
26/09/2005 at 07:42
Brilliant peeps, MicknPhil are an inspiration, they deserve our support.
26/09/2005 at 07:58
MicknPhil - Are just brilliant, they are great abassadors for our sport and for other disabled people. I am more excited about the raising of money for the wheelchair, than about my first marathon.
