    Well I have been underwhelmed by the flood of unwanted bits donated so far Crying or Very sad .

    A wheel, a mini pump and an MTB stem. Come on guys! Everybody has bits they don't want any more. Donate them to the Weston Hospice charity and feel good that you did something to help someone in a bad place.

    This week I managed to raise £31.47 from the sale of parts donated so far.  Look at https://www.justgiving.com/SteveFitton.  But I need to reach a target of £300 by the end of the month so urgently need more.  

    Ivan is going to rummage through his bits that his wife doesn't want, in the privacy of his own garage so that must be an example for other members to follow.

    Steve,
    I haven't got any bike bits, but I've got 2 pairs of shorts (1 pair bib, 1 pair normal, both Shimano, size XL, both excellent condition, only worn a few times last summer) that dont fit me anymore, and I've got that 5-bike floor stand that you are welcome to if you think you can sell them on.

    regards, Paul
