  1. Well after 5 weeks of driving you all mad I finally did it. Was a great day, met and got drunk with some old school West Ham fans. Most importantly, as a whole we’ve topped £21,000 for Isla who is the most important part of the whole effort. Bolton fans from both groups have been brilliant with their support and donations. So now it’s over you won’t have to put up with my begging anymore. I’ll leave you with the donation page once more and some photos of the day. Thank you all once again, you’ve been top notch. https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/tony-munday3
  2. Two more days until I run into the valley of death! Look out for the Goals pull out in The Sun this weekend, it’s possible there will be a bit in there about Isla, the run and the coming together of football fans to raise this money
  3. Let’s hope so. I’d like to see them fall through the leagues
  4. Well you know West Ham supporters aren’t the brightest bunch
  5. How tight do those socks look!! No way I’m trying them on before I have to
  6. Great win at the weekend. Love to see you stay up after all the support I’ve had from the Trotters.
  7. Where do I start!!! Today’s Brentwood half marathon was cancelled due to the inclement weather and will not be rescheduled. I took all the donations on the premise that I would do the forfeits I put in place. So I will honour them all. So now on Saturday 31st March, I will run a much more dangerous route from Cold Blow Lane to the Olympic Stadium via the New Den and the Boleyn ground wearing full West Ham kit and having claret and blue dyed hair. I will do crosses hammers at the finish where I will meet up with some of Isla’s fundraisers and then take in the West Ham v Southampton game I’ll be surprised if I don’t get a whack from someone along the route, more so through Millwall territory in Bermondsey!! I hope this will satisfy all of those who have donated. Wish me luck, I need it!! I thank you all once more for your incredible support
  8. I met young Isla and her family last night for the first time when I went to collect the West Ham kit from their house. A very very humbling experience. Isla’s parents are so strong and Isla was running around like any normal 3 year old just a week after an op to remove a brain tumour with the only visible signs being her face and head are totally bruised from the surgery An inspiration for all
  9. If you want to follow Isla’s story you can on Twitter @islasfight Facebook https://m.facebook.com/teamislanoonefightsalone/?tsid=0.6731053486079308&source=result
  10. Got no chance of getting anything from that pair, they could have paid for the whole treatment themselves
  11. Thank you for your support, it’s really appreciated and I’ve had a great response from Bolton fans. Regarding a tattoo, I have stated elsewhere that I’ll hsbe a hammers tattoo at £200,000. I’ve also stated I’d close the page at £199,000!!!!
  12. I can’t be any worse than what they have!! And thank you for your support, it’s bedn great seeing all the fans coming together for this on the forums I’ve managed to get onto.
  13. #Cancer has no colours Firstly hello all and I hope it is ok with the moderators to post this. I was actually pointed in the direction of this forum by Bolton nuts forum who have been great. My name is Tony Munday, I am a 49 year old unfit Millwall supporter (someone has to be) who is heading for the knackers yard. On Sunday March 18th I am running the Brentwood half marathon on behalf of a 3 year old little girl called Isla Caton who is suffering from the same horrible disease that took Bradley Lowery the boy who captured the nations hearts. The disease is Neuroblastoma and the treatment for this is only available in America. Last Tuesday young Isla had an operation to move a tumour from her brain and now goes back to chemo treatment to clear the cancer. Through the Bradley Lowery foundation the family need to raise £400,000. Here’s the catch. Isla Caton is born into a staunch West Ham family and as a Millwall supporter I am using this as leverage to raise as much money for her as possible. The rivalry between the two clubs is huge and I pray they lose every week. I set my original target at £1000 and declared I would run in a West Ham shirt if reached. Due to having many West Ham friends who I have wound up over the years I reached the £1000 in 24 hours. I added targets £2000 to run in full kit £3500 to do crossed hammers at finish line £7000 to run with dyed claret and blue hair I’ve topped the £7000 so the hair will be dyed,then raised to £12,000 as this girl needs as much as possible but that has also been reached. Now I’ve set it at £15,000. The Bradley Lowery foundation is a marvellous tribute to the sadly missed youngster. Normally I wouldn’t even look at a West Ham kit let alone wear one but I’m prepared for the stick I’ll get for the rest of my life so this amazing little girl gets what she needs. My pain will be nothing compared to what she is going through. It’s a very small sacrifice for me to make. I plan on joining forums of all 92 league clubs plus the 5 big Scottish clubs to post this message and hoping the football family come together to help smash this target and help send this incredibly brave little girl to America to save her life by donating to my just giving page. Since I started joining the various forums a few days ago it has been a roaring success In my eyes cancer has no colours especially in children. Isla’s twitter address is @islasfight, feel free to look and see what she’s going through Here is my just giving page below, hopefully you will find it in your hearts to donate to the cause through my run. Forget the new £15,000 target lets smash it to as much as possible, this angel deserves a chance at life I thank you all so much in advance https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/tony-munday3
