Hello everyone. Just so you know, this is not a beer blog.
On September 8th (Yes, that's next Saturday) I'm doing a pub crawl, this is for charity before any of you pipe up with the 'what's new' comments.....
The charity involved is JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation), their aim is to find new ways of treating type 1 diabetes and its complications, to find ways of preventing type 1 and to find a cure for those people that already have the condition. They also help to educate those affected by the condition such as health care professionals and the general public.
Type 1 diabetes is not about lifestyle. It is caused by a problem with the immune system, you cannot prevent it by adopting a healthy diet, exercising regularly or living a healthy lifestyle. There is currently no known cure. JDRF are committed to funding research that will help find a cure.
My mates James and Rose's daughter, Lily was diagnosed with type 1 in 2009 which is why I am getting involved. When Rose put out the call for pubs to visit on the crawl, I instantly volunteered The Rake, also on the crawl are The Mayflower, The Gun, The Narrow and we'll end up at the Antic pub, Pepper St Ontiod on the Isle of Dogs. So 5 pubs, 10 Kilometres and a target of £500.00 which we'd love to beat. So if you have a spare few quid for a good cause, please donate to Team Lily's Page here.
Please give generously, it really is for a good cause.
Thank you for your time.
