25% of fundraising target DONE!


We are now 9 days into my 365 day challenge and we have smashed through the 25% fundraising marker.

In just 9 days we have raised £5,581 for Cancer Research UK & Sobell House Hospice, and all in memory of my father, John Andrew Hall, who died of cancer in 2015.

We are in fact almost 28% there in terms of reaching our fundraising target of £20,000. I hope that by the end of the month we will be increasing the fundraising target to £25,000.

Please keep on making your pledges and donations. It really does make a difference.

Thank you all.

Cheers!!! £4k in just 4 days


Everyone raise a glass…sparkling water obviously. We have raised £4,096.50 in just four days of fundraising in the first week of 2017. A big thank you to Zac Phillips who was the pledge tipping us into the £4K barrier with £500. Dad would certainly be raising a pint of Hook Norton at this point on a Friday afternoon.

I am truly thankful and blessed to know so many generous souls and hope that we can keep this momentum going to reach and smash through the £20,000 fundraising target for Cancer Research UK & Sobell House.

For those who are thinking about donating the trend has been to pledge from 10p up to a very generous £1.36 for every day I don’t drink in 2017. The amount will not be payable until January 2018 when all resolutions have been successfully achieved.

£2K in 2 days…£8K to go.

Amazing faith or a huge lack of faith…either way I am amazed and genuinely touched by the generosity of my friends.

In just two days we have reached the £2,000 mark against my target of £10,000 for Sobell House & Cancer Research UK

A huge thank you to the below who have pledged:

Nettles, Peter, Jon, Andrey & Katia, Arron, Andrew, George, Charlie, Rupert & Suz.

Here’s to reaching £10K and beyond for the fight against cancer!



Day 4 out of 365

So far so good…although the general feedback has been that it will be impossible for me not to have a drop of alcohol for 12 months.

In response to these naysayers I say put your money where you mouth is and in the end it will all be to the benefit of two amazing charities; Sobell House & Cancer Research UK.

So a big thank you to Arron Smyth, my second pledge of the year, who has committed 50p for every day I stay on the bandwagon up to £182.50.

Thanks mate.
