Not sure if many of you have seen what Jeff Stelling is doing to raise money for prostate cancer.

He's walking from Hartlepool to Wembley, 10 marathons in 10 days.

I'm walking on day 9 between Luton Town Fc to Watford fc 26.2 miles.

Reason I'm doing this is my dad is slowly dying from PC. He no longer is able to come and watch Barnet which some may seem as a blessing so the more those of you know about Prostate cancer the better.

I'll be wearing my Barnet shirt with pride on March 29TH
If you can spare a fiver that would be appreciated

Cheers
Chris

we've all been affected by the dreaded "c" word i'm sure,
and one day,please god,they will find a cure.
grandparent,parent,son or daughter,
no one is exempt from cancer..there is no safe quarter.
but one day,because of people like you,
our hopes of conquering this disease will surely come true.
our prayers are with anyone suffering ..no matter of colour, creed or race,
till there comes a time,when our children can face a future where cancer has no trace.
well done B.F.S. a credit to 1ff

Thanks for your kind words

I've told my mum to upskill on the Barnet squad this year, as usually I'd give my dad a call on the way back after a match as he wasn't well enough to go for the last few seasons.

I told her that the content of most conversations with dad generally had the words Akinde and penalty involved!!!
