'Hi my name is Tim Pollard and I am part of the Disability Liaison Team, you may have spoken to me on the phone.
Be A Gunner Be A Runner was a huge success and thank you for your support. Eventually the sun came out which helped and made it a more enjoyable day!
I completed the 10 laps in around 43 minutes; but due to losing count of how many laps I had done, I preceded to run an extra lap. So 11 laps were completed in 47 minutes and 12 seconds.
There is still time to donate; please follow the link to my Just Giving page.
Thank you very much for your messages of support and donations it was a great help.

REGISTERED DISABLED SUPPORTERS SCHEME (NEW PURPLE MEMBERSHIP) 2014/2015 SEASON
The Purple Membership Scheme is now closed for the 2014/2015 season and will open for the 2015/2016 season on Wednesday 1st July 2015.
PLEASE NOTE: All applications received before the closing date of 31st January 2016 will be processed. However, due to the fact that the majority of home games go on sale two months in advance supporters joining the Purple Membership scheme at this stage of the season may not be successful when applying for tickets
Ticket Transfer: A New Service for Disabled Supporters
The Disabled Supporters Ticket Transfer Service will enable Season Ticket holders who are unable to attend a game to either transfer their season ticket places to another Registered Disabled Supporter (Purple Member) or to a disabled supporter who is not a member. However, in the case of a transfer to a non- member either you or the disabled supporter concerned will have to provide the required proof of disability before the ticket transfer can be made.
Disabled Supporters will be able to use the Ticket Transfer Service via the Disability Liaison Team and NOT online. This is to ensure that (a) the carer/companion seat gets included in the Ticket Transfer and (b) that the disabled supporters concessionary ticket scheme is not abused in any way.
The Ticket Transfer Service will come into operation once a game has sold out and will operate alongside the existing Disabled Supporters Ticket Exchange Scheme. For further information please contact the Disability Liaison Team on 020 7619 5050.
