Day 122

Live on

Rick Morris at Brooklands FM has been interviewing me most Saturdays throughout the summer by telephone. Today he kindly invited me in to the studio and we did a full overview of the tour. His support has meant a lot to me and I was delighted to get the chance to thank him in person.

Before that it was a dash from Reading via Aldershot. First stop was the magnificent Madjeski Stadium where there was quite a buzz even though Reading were playing away. Why? It was the launch of the new Mini Countryman and members of the Community Trust were there supporting their local dealership who had a good selections of all types of Minis on display at the club reception and where they were attracting many visitors. Phil Griffiths from the club explained that they had been sponsored for more than two years and that it was a very positive relationship.

I left the buzz at the Championship club for a cross country dash to Aldershot. It’s a long time since I had been to the town and I was delighted the ground was so easy to find in the centre where preparations were in place for the derby against Wycombe Wanderers. Sadly, even though Ben had promised me tickets, I was not able to accept them as I had promised Brooklands that I would be with them at the same time. This tour is NOT about me enjoying football but raising awareness so the radio interview had to take priority. Ironic that I was there just before kick-off though!
