Me looking brave before taking to the air (and the wing) of the plane. Wow, it was cold !! But the whole experience was totally exhilarating.

Jan's Blog

Computers and the internet are amazing things. One of my concerns with putting together this site was that it could remain current, yet with all my travelling I've often much to say, but little time to say it. Years ago when reading the news it would take me days on end to reply to the kind letters people sent. Now, with the magic of the modern age, I can keep you up to date with what I'm doing and other events in my life.

MIRACLES MISSION - Raising funds

Date: 3rd March 2021

I made a flip remark on Twitter about raising funds for Miracles Mission and said I was too old to strip but there was a rather flattering photo of me taken 10 years ago which I did for the Daily Mail with permission from my son. It was to promote the Male Cancer Charity ‘Orchid’ which deals with specific male cancers. My son had Testicular cancer when he was 25 so we were happy to promote the charity. The fee went to the charity.

Although it was only a throwaway Tweet I was immediately offered £25 for a copy - money to go to Miracles Mission Silent Auction to raise funds to buy land and erect building in which to assess, treat and if possible fit prosthetics to disabled dogs and cats.

I’m a trifle reluctant to post the photo on Twitter for all the world to see but thought I could post it on my website with far fewer readers.  The butterflies on me were proper artificial ones but there weren't enough so the surrounding ones had to be photoshopped.

I’ve 2 copies and will leave the bidding open until 14th March when the official Silent Auction begins for Miracles Mission.

If anyone would like the photo - signed if you wish - then contact me leemingjd@gmail.com and after the offers come in (hopefully)  I will give you the Paypal link for Miracles Mission.  A follower on Twitter has already offered £25.

Hope you don’t mind my being cheeky but if you don’t ask you don’t get. I don’t think the photo was photoshopped very much and anyone looks better being shot from above as all the floppy bits and wrinkles sink to the side??

Hopefully thanking you. Jan
