Life can deal a blow at any time,
There is no reason there is no rhyme,
But faith in human nature can be displayed,
By perfect strangers, in gestures made,
We have made a difference and shone a light,
For a fleeting moment Illuminated a darkness in another's plight,
Take solace in kind actions and all you do,
Thank your lucky stars that unscathed are you!

Neil/Iain ..I doff my cap to you :wink: ( get well soon Neil)

Jeez poor bastard, kidney stones, been there done that, worst pain I have ever experienced hands down & I have had my fair share of heavy duty physical pain over the years, kidney stones dropped me like a sack of shit though & the recovery is far from instant, so my thoughts go out.

The draw will happen when it happens guys, no rush from me thats for sure, just happy the young lass got the funds she needed & thankful we have managed to play a small part in making it happen for her, the brother getting something was a sweet touch, as has been said it's easy to overlook the needs of other family members when someone is so seriously ill so it was a great call/

My boss had stones, he's a total workaholic, but even he had to stop and take proper rest for weeks, a total killer. When he did return to work, he wasn't right for months; totally understand the delay. Get well soon Neil!

Okay I probably should have PMed Iain about it in retrospect so my bad on that :D
I wasn't really concerned about the draw but more about Bethany and if the nessesary money had been raised and spent, as I have not been actively collecting lately I've only been checking in to see if I need to post my prize out which is a bit frustrating when this seemed to have died, and no I wasn't after a refund :lol:

Hi guys. I'm really sorry this hasn't happened yet. The day of the draw, I was taken ill, so sorry about that. The good news is that I've arranged to redo it, so I appreciate your patience. The best news is that so far, all in, we have raised about £15,000!!
Dave has been able to order the equipment and has since been delivered. I promise that now I'm back on my feet, I'll get the draw done and post up the results.

Thanks again guys
Neil.
