Lets hope D all the fund raising keeps doing well. fair play to jonjo and anyone who raises cash for cancer and does there little bit to help with the fight against this horrible disease. My best mates dad just got diagnosed with throat cancer and fingers crossed he gets through the chemotherapy.
Thanks Morrisey.......fingers crossed for your friend. Thanks for walking with him, it was a great time and we made so many lovely friends. Hope you can walk again next time x
Well done that lad.
Any other day that week and I would have joined him, I can see Snowdon from my house unfortunately I have a board meeting last Thursday of every month.
Great stuff Jonjo and Jonjo's mum.

Don't take too much notice Donna. Sadly it's often the way of the world to snipe on the internet even at the least deserving targets. If there were any valid points being attempted in one or two posts, they could have been much more tactfully put and I hope that's been realised.
Have had the pleasure of walking with Jonjo the past 2 years and looking forward to next year too. Trust me the lad is not a stooge and not doing it for any self-serving reasons. There are plenty of other ways to meet the players or the like, in fact how much fun do you honestly think he had meeting the 2010-11 squad and it's 'coach'!!? It may be hard to believe in our cynical age, but there are people out there, kids included, who do stuff because they want to do something good for other people. Sorry I know that sounds preachy but it is true!
Jonjo, Megan, Donna and Gary are the very best of West Ham, and I'm proud to know them.
And boss, I'd have to say awareness DOES save lives; there are a number of cancers that have mortality rates that can be directly affected by early diagnosis - testicular, bowel, even lung. A big part of what the BMF and many other groups does is to try and raise awareness of the early signs of the disease - catching it early isn't a guarentee of a total recovery, but it certainly can be a life-saver. Getting the word out there about what to keep an eye out for is a big, big part of the whole fight against the disease.
You're absolutely right of course. What I meant is that without the funds already in place it's difficult to promote such things.
My apologies for any offence caused.
WestHamByTheSea ............... thank you. Really glad that someone who has met and walked with Jonjo made comment.
Boss.................No need to apologise. No offence taken and thank you for offering to help in any way you can.
Boss, no offence caused at all of course, certainly not on your part! Perhaps regarding funds/awareness it's a bit of a chicken/egg thing. I just think the awareness part of it is such an easy thing to get out there. And good darts with moving things on with the appeal on here - KUMB has always been a great window and promotion of Jonjo's work, and much appreciated.
What a totally brilliant lad you have there , and no matter what you say , you must take a lot of credit for the way he was brought up , so well done to you too .
If he needs a translator going up Snowdon , give me a shout !
Thank you for your kind words. May need a translator and a piggy back lol
No ..... Straightest route us around 23. He will be walking over every main London bridge on the way to stretch it to 66. Also hoping to call into Fulham FC too.
I heard you the first time !!
In 1977 when I was suppose to be studying for my Banking exams at Bangor , I used to bunk off and go walking up Snowdon .
I won't tell you what the Bank Manager said to me when he found out I hadn't been attending .
Let's say it didn't go down very well and my Banking career soon went down the plug hole soon after .
