Following the successful Golf Day at Aldersey Green Golf Club, Friday 27th August 2021, and the subsequent Collections and Donations received. I would like to extend the offer for anyone else on ToffeeWeb to make a voluntary contribution to this very worthwhile cause.
As most will be aware this terrible disease can strike at anytime and anywhere, to either (God Forbid) any of us or our loved ones and friends. The more advances that are made in to combatting the Disease, the more a Cure or better Prevention, is getting ever closer. Great strides have already been made and many in certain situations have been cured if diagnosed early enough.
I am not asking for a King's Ransom, just whatever you feel you can afford, for this very worthy cause. I am holding the money already collected, from the Golf Section and a couple of other contributions, in a Halifax Account, which stands at £220. It would be nice if that could be added to, and I can then send it all off to C.R. UK, who I am sure will acknowledge receipt and send a big thankyou to TW and it's Members.
Please contact me, to make a donation either by email : email@example.com or by text on 07565140075 for which I thank you all wholeheartedly in anticipation.

Being a survivor, 10 years this November, I can tell you that's it's scary as fuck when it happens to you especially when, for a couple of years of surgery, treatment and God knows what else, you still don't know whether you're gonna make it, and see us win a derby at Anfield!!!
Give what you can, one and all, because you never know if/when you're gonna get the tap on the shoulder by the fucker with the scythe!
If you do, take my advice, run like fuck!
Derek I'd like to give £20 mate. Will that be okay at The Bramley Moore or do you need it sooner?
2 Posted 10/09/2021 at 13:38:40
Please if you can, donate.
I hit 50 next Thursday.
Derek, on top of what I've already donated, I'll drop another £50 for each of my years. And on top of that £10 for every goal Everton score on Monday against Burnley.
I hope they fleece me.

And did you know that half the men and a third of the women in our respective nations will be struck by cancer during our lives?
Over on this side of the pond, I contribute monthly to Stand Up 2 Cancer, which focuses on new approaches and also operates in the UK. I saw my first two games at Goodison in April '17 while still in treatment, and dedicated that month's SU2C contribution to Everton FC.

Like Brian, I too intend to make a donation at The Bramley Moore get-together. I also have suffered the pain of losing near and dear ones to this terrible disease. If anything prevents me attending, I will donate directly to the Cancer Research Fund, and will forward the receipt to you, if you furnish your address, but let's hope that it doesn't come to that.

Mike G, thanks for those encouraging words from 'across the pond' and yes indeed as you so succinctly said Cancer Research UK is the biggest of its type in the world. As far as I am aware they share any positive research results with similar charities across the whole spectrum, so indirectly they are doing it on a global basis.
Thanks again to you all.

Nahhhh... have you ever been successful at getting money out of a Jock, mate?
10 Posted 10/09/2021 at 15:01:14
If by the 25th this hasn't hit £1k, I will make it so whatever the void. Either way, lets do a grand, Blues!

I would like to pledge £100 for this very worthy cause.
I will email you and perhaps you could respond by giving me the details of how to transfer it to the fund.
Well done on organising the get together and promoting this very worthy cause.
15 Posted 10/09/2021 at 17:02:43
Andy, a call from you at any hour is welcome as far as I'm concerned, but my wife would prefer you check the time zone chart first.

Mike, I'm in the US in October, splitting my time between Texas (work) and Florida (personal). Where are you based again?
I stand by my pledge Derek. Let's do a grand.
21 Posted 11/09/2021 at 10:43:31
I know it is a great cause and you have a very personal interest in this, due to reasons you explained to me off camera. Please guys, don't leave it all to one person to reach that 'Golden Grand'! Oh and Danny, leave any top-ups till after The Get-Together, as many have pledged to donate on the day at The Bramley Moore, so the current figure of £365 will be inflated.
22 Posted 13/09/2021 at 11:57:53
Anyway, commenting on it now so it's back in the recent comments section. If everyone using this site donated just a little.
23 Posted 13/09/2021 at 13:33:35
Maybe not politically or ethically correct, but being an ex-Navy Man, 'any port in a storm' applies. By the way, very grateful for your own contribution, and as you so succinctly indicated, that if everyone was to donate just a small amount, the price of a few pints or a few Coffees, it would soon reach or surpass the Golden Grand which is the current target.
Danny has offered to top it up regardless but, I don't think it is fair that one man who has already made a major contribution should be left to do it alone. He has also offered to add another £50, one pound for every year of his impending 50th birthday, plus £10 for every goal we score against Burnley tonight.
The figure now stands at £390, and many have pledged to contribute at The ToffeeWeb Get Together at Bramley Moore (Pub) 25th September after the Norwich game. Thanks again Mick, take care my friend, you are a top man.
24 Posted 14/09/2021 at 07:36:30
That's me another 30 lighter but gladly so. A worthy cause. When my wife got the news, I was numb. I didn't hear anything that was being said to me for about 5 minutes.
I appreciate these are tough times, but like I say, keep this going and build it before the "whip around" in The Bramley Moore on the 25th.
We'll do a grand and Derek can present it on behalf of Everton football supporters.
25 Posted 14/09/2021 at 10:55:03
Mike G, when I finally manage to obtain and send a new Marine shirt to you, you will find the Cancer Research UK logo emblazoned on the front.
26 Posted 14/09/2021 at 11:23:37
W Get Together, been a long time, and novel and apt it will be the Bramley Moore. I must defer any kudos that may be due, for choosing that location to Tony Abrahams.
The former Manager at the Excelsior (Blue) has apparently now left and been replaced by a new RS biased one, who would never give definitive answers as to hiring the room again, even when the RS were playing away, citing that he has a large group who still turn up to watch them on TV.
Let's face it, they are hardly ever off it, (TV) with Home or Away matches. Hopefully BM will be our new forever home for future TW G T's, prime location, which will be like Rocking Horse Manure, as everyone clambers to be next to the BMD Stadium !

28 Posted 14/09/2021 at 22:20:22
Despite putting a little reminder in on the Match thread it is still slow to get many more willing volunteers, so we will have to resort to the 'press gang'. Seriously, hoping it gathers a bit more momentum before Bramley Moore, but I know there will be a few on the day digging deep! Thanks again mate, you are a superstar.

Providing I see tomorrow, I'm honouring my pledge with another drop. £1 for what will be each of my 50 years and £30 for the 3 goals I got to see Monday night.
Derek, at one point in that period of the second half, I thought they were going to rinse me. I think the Burley keeper definitely saved me a tenner as well as the offside goal!

It's my 50th and I'm feeling grateful for my life having coming from a humble background and my current position in life. But it might not always be the case. If we can, we should give to those who are not so fortunate.
Let's keep this going and meet up on the 25th.
34 Posted 16/09/2021 at 08:18:04
Enjoy the day,🎂🥂👏
35 Posted 16/09/2021 at 08:27:21
I also understand where you are coming ftom in feeling grateful for your life. I had 2 close friends that served. One guy a marine and he struggled a bit when he left. He was a sniper, so you can imagine. However he is fine now. Did a degree and works as first response in the ambulance service. Amother close friend lost his life at just 19 in NI after completing a charity run for a church. I have never forgotten him. I wondered why he did what he did but really, he just loved it.

It just doesn't seem fair that the onus is basically falling on you, although you did volunteer in an emergency, to contribute the lion's share single-handedly, hopefully a few more will read, inwardly digest, reflect, and join the fund raising cause. Thanks again, and Happy Birthday Bro.

After all said and done, without sounding morbid or scaremongering, this is something that could very well affect all of us, or those nearest and dearest to us, such is the nature of this indiscriminate disease. The more research, which has already made significant advances in fighting this, the more we have the chance of a cure or prevention being found. Of course this is all too dependent largely on Charitable Contributions.

I understand what you are saying but don't be too downbeat. My wife was diagnosed with colon cancer 5 years ago, underwent major surgery and so far has made a good recovery.
My point is that we make regular donations to Cancer Research as a result and Jayne undertakes voluntary work at our local Hospice shop where we live, near Bristol.
My guess is that there will be other TWs who do the same. That said, I pledge £20 and I will send it to you; please forward bank details.
Finally, enjoy the get-together on Saturday (wish I could have made it) and hope you can celebrate 3 points at the same time. ATB. John.
