Gregor also explained how much support he expects from his fellow central Dark Blues, 'I'm sure the Central Boys will provide every encouragement and drink my allocated quota on my behalf. I'll take great pleasure in watching them drink pint after pint while they tempt me with the pleasing aroma of Guinness and whisky under my nose; meanwhile I'll be ordering another cola. I think the major encouragement from them will be the fact that their rounds will be significantly cheaper and they have an allocated driver for the games.'
Gregor has set himself a target of £250, but has already raised over £150 of that before his month of abstinence begins, amd urges anyone who may have bought him a beer on a matchday to instead donate the price of that pint to his justgiving page here, or alternately, donations can be made by text,to donate £3 just text 'GREG47 £3' to 70070. The donation will come out of your phone bill.
Every little really does help, £30 allows a man to take part in a study looking at treatment combinations for prostate cancer,£94 allows a woman to take part in a clinical trial for breast cancer and £324 helps fund a week’s study to investigate the molecules that cause a type of tumour in children.
The Society would like to take the opportunity to commend Gregor on what will be no easy task, and would urge everyone to donate either via the Just Giving page, or by text as one Central Dark Blue embarks on what he describes as 'The toughest challenge of my life.'
