This is just a great story and despite our rivalry a brilliant thing to do in raising money in a fun way.
I love that Phil has donated a kit as well.
It just gets better and better and The Argus and local TV should be on hand as well.
Well done for instigating the whole thing Westquay!

I noticed long on on political correctness short on doing anything constructive e.g. putting hand in the pocket. Text book example of virtue signalling.

So, an update on what happened with this.

As you know, Westquay was behind the effort to raise awareness for this cause. His friend Neil, a Brighton fan, wanted to raise funds for the Martlets Hospice. They cared for Neil's friend Ralph, a retired nurse who worked at the children's hospital in Brighton.

Neil's mission was to do a sponsored walk on the West Highlands way in Scotland. Westquay challenged him to do the walk wearing Palace shorts. Challenge accepted if Palace fans raised 150.

Well, in typical Palace style, we did a lot more than that - much more. In total Palace fans contributed a staggering 850 ! The result of that being that Neil then had to complete the whole walk in full Palace kit, together with a special message on the back of the shirt.

We showed the Palace way when supporting the Hartlepools managers wife. This is another example of what a great fan base we have.

Thank you to CPFC - Phil Alexander - who willingly donated the kit.

Hats off to Neil McIntyre for keeping his word, it must have been an uncomfortable experience ! He was completely blown away with the response from Palace fans.

Well done to Westquay for being there for his friend and being the inspiration behind involving us, thereby guaranteeing Neil achieved his 1000 target.

And finally a huge thank you to all on here that donated.

He looks about as happy as I would in a Brighton kit. Well done anyway and thanks for the update.

 


I used to put the manager's name in front of Red and Blue but got fed up with changing it. If someone cool becomes our manager then maybe..

Red and Blue Army!

Hi all this is Neil using westquay account
Just come in to thank you all for your generous backing and moral support. It wa a rollercoaster 6 days where I has to dig deeper than I thought possible but with the the support of 2 great clubs and a few family and friends I pulled it off. Special thanks goes to Westquay for bringing it to you and putting a lot of energy into raising more awareness he put me to shame.
Anyway in memory of Ralph and with love and respect to you Neil UTA &#128514;

You're a credit to your club. Very well done mate and best of luck for the furure - except on the pitch, of course. The pictures are hilarious.

Special thanks to Neillo and Becky ... Also the legend of kindness Mr Alexander who was just so in to this whole thing....
Paul Barber at BHA who donated kindly and showed real decency, humour and was just lovely...
But mainly to everybody who saw the spirit of this whole thing and understood the power of kindness but knew from start to finish there is a place in south London with a spirit and heart and generosity, That has the best freekin fans in the whole world..
