This Body Was not Made To Run!!!!!!

Hi Everyone,

I've just signed up to do the Manchester Midnight Walk. I stress 'walk' as we DO NOT RUN! This body was not made to run!

The event is for St Ann's Hospice which is a charity which means a lot to me. I'm a patron and am trying to do all I can to help.

The 10k walk is in it's 4th year and is taking place on 2 July. We're trying to raise as much cash as we can! I lost my Grandad to cancer 6 years ago and unfortunately he didn't get the greatest care. It wasn't long after that I first went to visit and I expected a dark and dismal place where people went to die - but I was surprised to see it was actually a bright and inspirational place with angels who work so hard to make the life of your loved ones the best it can be right to the end. Nearly half of their patients also go home again once treated in the hospice.

Unfortunately they get so little government funding and so they have to raise £16,000 every day just to keep their doors open. I know there are loads of events every year for charities in Manchester - and I know times are tougher than they've ever been, but we really need your help even more than ever as St Ann's have struggled, like all of us, through this recession. This has really hit their finances.

But this where you can help! The Manchester Midnight Walk is a really great event - it's fun to do and is a huge boost for the hospice (last year this event raised nearly a quarter of a million pounds!). It's just £15 to register and you can join me and thousands of others on the night.

There's plenty of ways to register, either go online at or call 0161 498 3631

Hope to see you there, and email me at if you have any questions. If you need any more information then get in touch.

Help Manchester Dog's Home!!!


Well what a busy week already!

I'm still on the bloody diet - more on that on the Key 103 Breakfast pages - but it's also John Edward at the Apollo on Thursday, the Ladies Lunch for Cash4Kids on Friday - and Manchester Dog's Home have a fun day to raise cash on Sunday 23rd May.

Most of you will know I do as much as I can for Manchester Dog's Home - they are a brilliant charity. Each Christmas I unveil the Buy A Dog A Christmas Dinner Appeal - for all the doggies who have no families. I also told them I'd tell you about their great fun day this weekend - in the hope you'll all go and raise as much money as you can to help them. It's gonna be a great day from 11am to 4pm at Debdale Park on Hyde Road.

It's their 20th Annual Sponsored Dog Walk, you can walk dog's who live at the home from 1pm and there's loads of other stuff going on - like baloon modelling, face painting, a bouncy castle and a rodeo bull so it's a great day out for all the family.

If you're free, please head down and have a look. For more information go to:

If you'd like to get in touch - email me at:

Take care, Chels x

Help a Homeless Doggy!

Hi Everyone,

I need your help!

I got an email yesterday from a lady called Jenny - desperately needing our help after trying loads of different ways to re-home her dog.

She has a Dalmation called Poppy, who's 7. Jenny got him 18 months ago from the dog's home after being dumped by his previous owner. She loves him to bits!

Problem is, Poppy is a bit scared of other dogs and children (may be due to him previously being ill treated). Jenny doesn't mind this - she takes him out when there's no other dogs around and she has no children. BUT now there's a problem - Jenny has fallen pregnant. And she's now worried Poppy won't take to this well and she's been advised to re home her.

But due to these tendancies and the fact she's 7, nobody wants her.

That's where you come in! Jenny is devastated and doesn't want Poppy to be put to sleep. She would be suited to someone with no kids, who has time to get to know her and somewhere to run around.

Please can you help?

Or do you know of anyone who can? Jenny is 5 months pregnant and time is running out.

If you can email me now at:

Thanks and can't wait to hear from you.
