    66 MILES and that's the direct route according to the AA... I guess you route may be longer, I wish you all well for the walk, how many are doing it ?... I have donated a tenner... and gladly. It's gestures like this that the football family need and not like the event that was the Millwall v Everton debacle over the week-end

    Thanks for that! Just me doing it, but others welcome to join. I agree, and the response has been overwhelming, only set page up last night. Cheers again!

    Have you put this onto the Burton fans site? You might get a bit more sponsorship.

    Also needs a shout out on Football Heaven - the residents of South Yorkshire are all beneficiaries of this fundraising effort.

    Also do you think it's worth tweeting the club/GG? Don't use Twitter but could help spread the word..

    Once again a big thank you to everyone that has donated so far! Really chuffed with the support and response. Also had the first donation from a Burton fan today (posted on their site couple of days ago). I've upped the goal to £750, currently on £617 if anyone else wants to chuck in for a great cause: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/luke-whewall. Cheers all!
