'If It's Football, It's Vital'

London To Paris - Sir Graham Of Taylor...


Just a reminder. Sir Graham Of Taylor was on Midlands Today last night. He's well into his training, he was reminded that he'd fallen off his bike 14 times during his training and laughed saying 'that is what all top international cyclists do'...! He also spoke on Villa and said he hoped they'd get someone with experience in... but the point of this article isn't to discuss Villa but to get some donations. Easiest way is to text 70222 with 'grahamtaylor' (lower case) or as below, go to the just giving site.

A message from Graham Taylor which really needs no further comment other than... donate! Other sites, please feel free to spread the word and that goes for all the fans as well, be great to get this as well supported as possible.

'Hi,

At long last I am doing something worthwhile!!

I am one of approximately 300 people who are going to cycle from London to Paris in an attempt to raise in excess of 500,000 for The Royal British Legion. Starting at Greenwich Park on Thursday September 2nd we all hope to be celebrating when finishing at the Arc de Triomphe on Sunday September 5th.

Obviously I am now looking for as many sponsors as possible, and hopefully this is where you come in!

You can support me by making a donation by visiting JUST GIVING GRAHAM TAYLOR and/or texting 'grahamtaylor' to 70222. The text message costs 3 plus standard network charges.

The Royal British Legion is the nation`s leading Armed Forces charity providing care and support to all members of the British Armed Forces past and present and their families. It is also the national Custodian of Remembrance and safeguards the Military Covenant between the nation and its Armed Forces. It is of course best known for the annual Poppy Appeal and its emblem the red poppy.

Finally as I come to the end of my first year as an O.A.P I cannot think of a better way of celebrating it than cycling from London to Paris. Can you? Thanks for your support.

Best Wishes

Graham Taylor'
