So, with the Olympics opening ceremony out of the way, it’s time for our own big event!
Tonight, from 6pm, will be Melody’s Moonwalk. For those of you who don’t already know my wife and I lost our 5-week old daughter on April 1st. She died of sepsis and an infection similar to meningitis and was very sudden. I’ll admit we’ve been struggling, and certain people have been making things worse, but we’ve got today!
We decided to raise money for the neonatal charity, Bliss. We’ve made a little money through car boot sales and such and a few donations, but now we’ve got the big event, the Moonwalk! Tonight, there will be bouncy castles (donated), a BBQ, cream teas, hook-a-fish for the kids, face painting (I think), a drinks bonanza tombola, an auction of my little brother Iain’s cheffing skills, a hot dog eating competition, and of course a bunch of grown men crying whilst having their chests waxed! Including me! Gulp. And then there’s the main event: the Moonwalk, to do as many laps around Tatworth Playing Fields as possible in three hours. Most are walking, but some are running, some are skipping, and others are doing anything BUT moving forwards. Don’t ask.
So, should be a good night.
With me in a kilt!
So, if any of you are in the Tatworth (South Somerset) area, come on down to the Playing Fields, and have some fun!
See you there!
