I am one of 300+ Wigan Athletic fans who will be walking to the Reebok Stadium on Saturday 11th February 2012 in support of The Emma Hoolin Appeal.

Whereas I know a lot of people have already supported this appeal already, due to my appalling level of disorganisation, I have only just got this page set up and it is looking a bit bare. If you haven’t got around to joining the walk or donating a few quid, then please, please do so.

This is a little girl who needs life saving treatment and as a father of a 1 year old girl myself I cannot imagine what it must feel like to go through the trauma of someone so young suffering so much and I make no apology for supporting this appeal to help give one little girl from Wigan the opportunity to enjoy that very basic quality which we all take for granted, the right to life.

Personally being a well tuned athlete**, I can run the 6.7 miles in my dinner hour but I am a very lucky person in some respects and I hope that you, if you have read Emma’s story, also feel very lucky. Read it here. Sorry that it isn’t a massive sacrifice on my part, but if promoting this cause again helps to raise a few more quid for the cause, then I’m not about to apologise for doing it.

**And if you laughed at that bit, I DEMAND you donate a few quid

If you can donate a couple of quid or whatever you can afford, every penny counts as Emma’s ongoing treatment in the US continues to help her overcome a very severe form of cancer which cruelly affects children.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate – I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
