Terry Conquered The Severn!

Martin's road manager, Terry Oliver, is a keen kayaker and over the past few years has travelled the length of some of England's best known rivers, raising money for charities close to his heart. This April he kayaked the length of the River Severn to raise money for The Alzheimer's Society and The Stroke Association, two organisations close to his heart after caring for his parents in their old age. With sterling help from Ian and Shar Brown, two long-time fans of Martin's music who've become very good friends of Martin and Terry over the years, and also from Terry's partner Deb, Terry had a fine time, with no visits from aggressively protective, nesting swans this year! You can still sponsor Terry in recognition of his trip through his Just Giving website which is online until July.
Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - Terry raises more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
So please donate what you can, every little helps.
