Weight loss challenge for Brain Tumour Research (66 days)

I am doing a 2 month weight loss challenge for Brain Tumour Research.

This weight loss will include no crisps, no chips, no chocolate, no alcohol, no sausage butties and no Friday fry ups – going to be very tough!

I am determined to make a difference for this charity, I start on Friday 12/10/2012 and finish on 17/12/2012 (Total 66 days)

I have setup a donations page on the following link: www.justgiving.com/Brain-Tumour-Research-Weight-Loss-Challenge

I will weigh in on the morning of Friday 12/10/2012 and will be looking for people to sponsor me.

I am currently over 100Kg and hope to lose approx. 10Kg in the 2 month period (I figured if people sponsor say 50p or £1 per kilo that works out as about a £5 or £10 donation)

I really appreciate any donation.

Supporter Club Bus

SPURS bus trip at home on Sunday 11th of November K.O 1-30pm

We will be traveling on a luxury 43 seated coach; it has a couple of tables, TV, DVD players, toilet etc

This coach is the old Aberdeen team bus, the Aberdeen Football Club official bus is being used that weekend as they are playing away from home

We will depart at 9am from Marischal College on Saturday 10th Nov and pick up en-route at Montrose (Stracathro) and then onto to Dundee, 9-30 and 10 o’clock respectively.

We would welcome picking up members from any other supporters club as we have approximately 10 seats available.

The cost for supporter club members is 50 pounds from Aberdeen and surrounding area but if we were to pick up at Carlisle for example we would offer a reduced rate.

The bus will return directly after the match on Sunday (no later than 4PM)

Note that any profits made on the coach will go to Supporters Club Charity 2012- Brain Tumour Research

We would appreciate if you could add this to the MCIVTA City newsletter

If anyone is interested please let me know
