Saturday 28th September 2019.
Well, we put Motor Sport for MS to bed on the evening of the 28th September, well sort of. We put the race circuit side of MS4MS to bed but we will still be collecting at local events and will be taking part in the 2020 Newport Pagnell Carnival as well as the 2020 Yardley Gobion Festival of transport.
We also announced that with the help of the Senior Section of the Rutland County Golf Club and their Captain Mr Steve Markham and the money they have collected and pledged, over £5,500 so far added to the almost £33,400 we have raised so far we are rapidly approaching £40,000!
How did that happen???
We also announced that we are not going out lying down and that plans are in place for a 24-hour endurance event around Willen Lake, Milton Keynes over the weekend of the 1st/2nd August 2020.
Starting at 2pm on the 1st of August a 4 man team of drivers will take on the 24 hours with each driver taking on 2-hour shifts with 4 hour rest periods until 24 hours has been completed. Wish us luck.
EVEN BETTER PLEDGE US MONEY!

Christmas continues for Motor Sport for MS!
Those nice people at the Milton Keynes Amateur Operatic Society, the team behind this year's panto, Sleeping Beauty have just donated us £350.
Our massive thanks goes to my old mate Kev Amies, John Dowell, all of the Dreams 'n' Wishes team, on stage, back stage and front of house plus all of the lovely patrons who attended this year's 'Sleeping Beauty' Pantomime.
Don't forget MKAOS will be putting on their version of 'Shrek the Musical' from the 3rd to the 6th June, tickets are available on the MKAOS website, as are next years panto tickets although it is a secret as to what production they will be putting on.
Oh no its not, oh yes it is.
STOP PRESS, IT'S........... CINDERELLA!
2019, PUT MOTOR SPORT FOR MS TO BED? PARTY NIGHT.
Another fantastic result for Motor Sport for MS.
Earlier today I received this message from Rick Shortle’s daughter Tina, whose Daughter Bethan is attending Brighton College, Sussex. A while ago Bethan informed us that she was pitching MS4MS to be a chosen charity for one of this year’s charity events.
Well, this is going to happen. Thank you so much, Bethan Sharps. x
Fenwick Fashion Show
We are excited to announce that the annual Fenwick Fashion Show will be taking place on Tuesday 3rd March at 7pm. Each year the Fenwick Lower Sixth girls come together to host one of the main House charity events of the academic year.
This year we are supporting two charities chosen by the Fenwick girls. The first is Great Ormond Street Hospital, which does phenomenal work providing specialist care for more than 40,000 children a year. Our second charity is Motor Sport for MS, a charity which raises money towards the Multiple Sclerosis Society, through setting official records at UK motor sports circuits on 8MPH mobility scooters.
This year we are asking for your help and support in three ways:
1. We would love to see as many of you as possible on the evening, tickets are available at reception at a cost of £8 per person (£5 for pupils). Your daughter can purchase one on your behalf and the cost can be added to the school bill OR you can purchase a ticket on the door.
2. We would welcome donations of prizes for our raffle which will be drawn on the evening. Please send donations via your daughter to the L6th or tutor team.
3. There is also a JustGiving page available for those who are unable to attend the event but wish to make a contribution - https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/fenwick2020
We look forward to seeing you on 3rd March and would really appreciate your support in helping us to raise as much as possible for our chosen charities!
The L6th Fenwick Girls
Our grand total is now a whopping £41,598. Yes, we have smashed the £41k.
207% of my original target, (which I didn't think I had any chance of hitting).
Just Giving is also showing another £478 in 'gift-aid' to be added to the total as well.
As I said, when I won the Fundraiser of the Year Award, I'm gobsmacked!
Thank you so much, Steve Markham and all of the guys and gals at the RCGC Senior Section.
Check out their Rutland County Golf Club page on this website to see exactly how much help they have been this year.
The next project, 'The Willen 24 Hour' event now has its own page and planning is well underway.

'A BLOODY SILLY IDEA'
The story behind this song.-
Written by Phil Dyer (on the right) and played by him, his son Dan and Karen Cas on the Cajon.
'The MK Fleas'.
The song is called 'A bloody silly idea' because- that is what I have called this project right from the very start.
Very apt I still think!
What a voice.
Jess sang for us at our 2018 fundraiser.
She is a professional singer and music teacher.
She trained at the Royal Academy of Music in London and passed out with a 2.1.
Oh, and did I mention, she is our Neice.
Proud Uncle time!

2020 Milton Keynes MS Group cheque handover.
On the evening of Friday 24th January 2020, I had the pleasure of handing over our latest donation to our local MS Group in Milton Keynes. I was extremely proud to be able to hand over a cheque for £7,000 to the Chairman of the Group, Harry Robinson. The MK Group does amazing work for local MS sufferers. They use the money not just to help fund things like water aerobics sessions, but things people never think about, like repairs to a mobility scooter that people may not be able to afford which makes them housebound and to help in the garden. Such simple things, but they all make a difference and help someone with MS. Myself and my team are very proud to help, and the money has been adding up over the last 4 years. £16,000 initially to the Central MS Society to help with research. then over the last 3 years £18,000 to the MK Group and last year with the help of Steve Markham and the Seniors Section of the Rutland County Golf Club we donated just over £6,000 to the Peterborough MS Group.
