Tuktuk Day Three

As I said yesterday, the first two days are spent letting you, my followers, know more about the tour.

Locally they have worked with QPR and Brentford and Luton’s Mick Harford has been a longtime supporter of theirs. Perhaps their highest profile supporter is the fundraising machine who is the television presenter Jeff Stelling, MBE (above) whose love for Prostate Cancer awareness and Hartlepool United knows no bounds! Hopefully, I can catch up with Mick and Jeff on my tour. Here is a typical testimonial from Stephen Fry
