My story

[p]UPDATE:[/p][p]Well, we did it and survived! Thank you to everyone for the support so far - but if you're only just seeing this there is still time to donate. This page is staying open until a month after the event. let's see how high we can drive the total![/p][p]Andy[/p][p][i](There should be a YouTube video of us at the event below - if you're seeing a big empty gap then you can find it at [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kOU5AYni5EQ]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kOU5AYni5EQ[/url].)[/i][/p][p][lt]object width="425" height="350" data="http://www.youtube.com/v/kOU5AYni5EQ" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"[gt][lt]param name="data" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/kOU5AYni5EQ" /[gt][lt]param name="quality" value="high" /[gt][lt]param name="wmode" value="transparent" /[gt][lt]param name="src" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/kOU5AYni5EQ" /[gt][lt]/object[gt][/p][p][/p][p]ORIGINAL MESSAGE:[/p][p][/p][lt]img style="float: right; margin: 10px; border: 1px solid black;" title="Cromer Dash " src="http://www.andthenhesaid.com/img/250swim.jpg" alt="Cromer Dash by Adam Bowie" width="250" height="167" /[gt][p]They say only mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the mid-day sun. Well, we also go out into the perishingly cold Christmas sea. Come Boxing Day, Cromer beach will be packed with the mad, the bad and the dangerous to know, all ready to run helter-skelter into the freezing North Sea. [/p][p]Because, why not?[/p][p]I'm doing it because it sounds fun, in a twisted sort of way, but I also want to take the chance to raise some cash for the Henry Surtees Foundation. [/p][p]As an independent motorsport journalist, I remember the day of his death vividly - trying to gather the information needed to report responsibly on what had happened while at the same time our web server was being brought to its knees by the rush of ghoulish interest.[/p][p][lt]img style="float: right; margin: 10px; border: 1px solid black;" title="Henry Surtees" src="http://www.andthenhesaid.com/img/250hs.jpg" alt="Henry Surtees" width="250" height="166" /[gt]The foundation that John Surtees has set up in his son's memory does excellent work, both in helping victims of injuries and trauma, and in supporting young people. In my day job as a college tutor, working with teenagers around the age Henry was when he died, I fully support the foundation's goals.[/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. [/p][p]I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p]
