I hope Richard doesn’t mind but I wanted to draw everyone’s attention to a charity run on 23rd October 2011. A few weeks back I wrote about Roger Brown following his sad passing at the age of 58. Subsequently I discovered that his son-in-law to be, Peter Drakeley, was running for charity. There’s only a few weeks to go and I think Peter could do with a sponsorship boost. I know times are hard but even the smallest donation can make a difference. Here’s what Peter had to say;
As I am sure most of you are aware Fulham Legend Roger Brown sadly passed away last month aged only 58 years:
Roger was a good friend of mine, and my father in law to be and in his honor I have (perhaps a tad foolhardy) decided to attempt the Great Birmingham run to raise money for St Giles Hospice; a place where Roger felt safe and was well looked after in the last months of his life.
It’d be great if some of you would make a donation to this attempt in Rogers name.
If you would like to donate you can do so online at JustGiving:

Please also spread the word to anyone you think might like to donate that probably won’t see this thread!
