A friend of Will’s from his Hereford days has raised £998 by running 13 miles in the Brecon Beacons as part of the Midnight Mountain Marathon.
I am so grateful to Chris Munton for doing this and all the money is being donated through the YouCaring donation page for Will.
A brilliant effort Chris!
Chris met Will through his sister, Lou, who worked with him at the Oddbins in town. This is what said when I asked him how he knew Will….
“My sister Lou kept telling me about this great guy she’d started working with in Hereford at Oddbins. It wasn’t long until Will was inaugurated into our ‘gang’ and we bonded over a mutual appreciation of music & gigs, history, theories on this and that and pubs. Several years of merriment and high-jinks ensued. When Will turned 50 I had the honour of DJ’ing at his party. His friends Ray and Pete lent us their rare Soul records for the bash and we had a real blast. Will has a knack of always spinning life in a positive way and is real sweet too. I remember him helping me to decorate our house just before my daughter was born, we blasted Apex Twin at high volume whilst drinking tinnies. The small things that really count in a friend.
Shortly after, Will left for St. Maarten and left me to fatherhood! All the messages saved on my Facebook feed from him are about meeting again – and I’m not losing hope on that.”
Cheers Chris!!! You’re a stella chap √ If you feel like following in Chris’s footsteps and organizing a sponsored event for Will, time is of the essence as we focus on continuing physical therapy, neurological check ups and more Omega 3’s.
