Well, what a surprise that was.
We have been named as the MS Society's 2018 'Fund Raiser of the Year' at their very glitzy awards ceremony.
Held at County Hall, London the awards were hosted by Radio 1 DJ Scott Mills.
My award was presented by MS Ambassador Stuart Nixon MBE.
I would like to thank everyone at the Society for putting on such a slick event and also the judging team who deemed that my little project was worthy of the award. I feel very humble.
Well, its all done.
I have achieved my dream of setting an official lap time on every mainland MSA licenced race circuit.
I, along with many other people never thought I would get this 'Bloody Silly Idea' off the ground let alone manage to set 29 official lap times on fully licenced circuits!
Along the way, we have picked up the accolade of winning the MS Societies coveted '2018 Fundraiser of the year award' and raised over £25,500 pounds for the Central MS Society and my local MS Group.
Next year we will be adding the Peterborough Group to the beneficiaries as I will be assisting my old mate Steve Markham, who along with his wife Annie assisted my self and my wife Karen in initially setting up MS4MS.
Steve is spending the year as the Captain of the senior section of the Rutland County Golf Club and we will be involved in various fundraising events at the club including the Captains Day Golf Tournament.
Any money raised from these events will go to the Peterborough MS Group who we are looking forward to meeting and working with.
Well done to everyone who has put any effort of any kind into the MS4MS team and thanks to you all.

Here are a few photos taken at the MS4MS end of year party and fundraiser held in Newport Pagnell on 24th Nov. 2018. We not only celebrated the fact that we finally managed to complete a lap of every UK Mainland Race Circuit but, we also handed over a cheque, to the MS Society for £16,000.
