Update – the ball has started rolling and long may it continue… seems like he’s managed to rope in a few extra jumpers as well!
Off the topic today and for a good reason too -Â John is doing some fund raising for a most tremendous cause to help raise finance for a course of treatment for his girlfriend who suffers from a rare degenerative disease called Freidreichs Ataxia.
Anyway, Mr. Butler is going to throw himself out of a plane (with a parachute) to start the proceedings and has set up a website, CharityFeelsGood.com to take donations. If you’re interested, and I hope that you are, you can contribute $2 via PayPal or sponsor more if you wish.
There’s a long road to go in trying to raise the total amount given a complete lack of funding by the HSE or Irish Government so hopefully this will set things on its way.
