So I was having a think the other night about how in my position as Team Scotland blabberer I could help make all the other participants be more at ease with the task they are about to undertake. I decided the best way to do this was bite the bullet and get down there for a little reccy myself and see what the fuss was all about. So here’s a little video I took of the beautiful scenery we’ll be taking in on our ramble in the brambles:

The big question is… which one of us is going to be Jon Snow?

Just an interim shout out to some friends and colleagues who have made a difference to this challenge in the last couple of days… A full, and frank mission briefing will be given at 09:00 on Monday morning.

The big man (Gavin) was obviously feeling very generous this week due to the absolutely STUPENDOUS, STONKING AND FANTASMAGORICAL performances that have bestowed Real and Smooth Radio in Scotland this October – as such, he dug deep into his own commission for the month and donated us the princely sum of £100. Thank you so much, makes a huge difference.

Also, massive thanks to Ross Williamson, Vic Paterson, Karen Hodgson, Sue Donaldson, Michelle Hextall, Suzanne Waters, Lisa Wilkinson and Ali Bally Bing Bong for their kind donation to the cause (every single penny counts). If you haven’t already donated… please make it your priority to do so: http://www.justgiving.com/RealRadio-Scotland or text REAL66 £x to 70070

Oh, and all my family and friends too… but this post isn’t really aimed at them!

ONE TIME OFFER ONLY. I WILL MATCH EVERY PENNY DONATED BY A MOVEMBER PARTICIPANT BETWEEN NOW AND THE END OF THE WALK WITH A RECIPROCATED DONATION! Anyone?!? Come on!

The guys at CHAS really need your help – they do such amazing work and even a donation of a fiver can make all the difference.

However, that’s not where the good work ends. I would also like to give a huge bit of encouragement to the guys around the country who are raising money for the charities that are so close to their hearts. They are Noah’s Ark Childrens Charity in Wales: http://www.noahs-ark-appeal.org When you Wish Upon a Star in the North West: http://www.whenyouwishuponastar.org.uk/ Zoe’s Place in the North East: http://www.zoes-place.org.uk/ and the Yorkshire Air Ambulance: http://www.yorkshireairambulance.org.uk/

And that leads me on to the next part…

… wait, I’ll have to leave that till Monday – my new equipment for the walk has just arrived from Go Outdoors!

TTFN!
