Sponsor Me? These Have

As you know, I need to raise approximately $1800 for the Police Unity Tour bike ride this may.

So far, I have received donations from the following:

Russell Jones & Walker £250.00

Admiral Insurance £300.00

Virgin Media £80.00

Argos £20.00

Excess of Expenses* £60

TOTAL £710 (approximately $1065)

* Excess of expenses – I am entitled to set amounts of expenses when working away from home, to cover meals etc. This amounts to a maximum of £26 per day to cover all meals, phone calls etc. when staying away for 24 hours. By prudent spending (namely Wetherspoons pubs for meals) I have managed to underspend some expenses and will be donating them to the Police Unity Tour fund.

Why have the other companies donated to my fund raising? These are all companies that I have had cause to raise complaints about customer service with. They have made offers of compensation which I have accepted and added to the Police Unity Tour fund. It goes to show how much compensation customers could be claiming for poor service etc..

How do you sponsor me?

a) give me cause to make a complaint or sue you

b) the easier way is to go to www.firstgiving.com/peterbennett and making a donation. You will need to use a credit card and the amount is in dollars £1 = $1.5 approximately)

c) Send me a cheque. If you want me postal address, then email me at spen666 @ hotmail.com

Listen to Bob Geldof and take the hint


About spen666

I'm a 40 something football fan and cyclist. I've been a football fanatic most of my life and have completed the 92 football league & premier league grounds Added to this numerous non league grounds, a number abroad and you start to get the picture. I took up cycling in around 2000. Although my father was a former World Vets Champion, I got into cycling accompanying my son to ride in London. This was followed by my commuting to work each day into Central London. Then doing some Sunday rides, then some audax events (www.audax.uk.net) and then a week's cycling holiday in France with a friend. From there, I got more and more into cycling and in 2009 completed LEJoG and in 2010 rode in the USA with the Police Unity Tour. I completed blogs for those events at www.aminearlythere.blogspot.com and www.bothesidesofthepond.blogspot.com Feel free to read them and learn more about me. I live alone which suits me as it gives me time at weekends to pursue my interests of cycling and football. (Well what did you expect me to say? That I'm sad at being single?) I'm currently looking for my next challenge. Any suggestions gratefully received.
