My name is Kevin Driscoll and my friend and fellow West Ham Season
Ticket holder, Neil Hutson, came up with the idea to walk around every
Football Club in London to raise money for the Bobby Moore Fund and St Nicholas Hospice in Bury St Edmunds.
My Dad Dennis sadly passed away suddenly in March last year from
stomach cancer after spending two weeks in the local hospice, so Neil
suggested we do something in his memory.
We started our 73 mile walk from West Ham’s ground on Thursday 3rd
April, with my son Chas and friends Sean Clarke and Bill Pearson –
visiting Orient, Spurs, Arsenal, Chelsea, Fulham, QPR and ended up that
night at Brentford. Then, at 6am the next morning, we set off across
to South London to Palace, Millwall and Charlton, then the following
morning, headed over to Dagenham & Redbridge and back to West Ham.
We had our photo taken on every pitch and collected a signed shirt from
every club except Spurs, who couldnt help us!!
We are now auctioning all the shirts and lots of other items that have
been donated, which can be viewed at www.walk4dennis.co.uk please email us with bids for any of the items or come to our auction at LP Bar in Bury St Edmunds on Weds 30th April from 7.30pm.
