Thats the spirit,Joe.
Kevster, have you tried 'Help The Hospice'. They were a designated charity either this year or last.

No, havent tried any other charity yet. To be honest, I just assumed I'd be ok, so todays news was a shock! They are the charity I feel I want to support, so will see what happens before changing to another, but I must admit, I did see lots of Help the Hospice shirts this year, need to find out more about what they do (i.e. do they donate money to all hospices?).

Thanks for the idea, will look into it.

Children With Leukaemia seem to be generous with their places, and they have a big team - 1300 this year I think, although don't know how many golden bonders.

Have emailed Help the Hospices to ask if any of the money they raise will goto my local hospice, reading their website vaguely implies it will - which I'd be happy with.

I know its too early to worry about securing a place yet - after all, I may get in via the ballot (and win the lottery at the same time!) but knowing you've got a place helps with motivation.

They don't cover all hospices. I wanted to run for my local childrens hospice through them, but it wasn't on their list. I'm currently hoping to run a few events this year for Demelza House in Kent, which is the childrens hospice used by some of my patients. The plan is to also run for them with my place for next year.
You could try looking at it the other way, of course. Log on to justgiving, and see if they have the hospice of your choice on their list. At least you'll know where your money's going if you get a ballot place.

Just been on the FLM site, and the countdown clock for next year has started already!
