Physiotherapist, Mike Conyers - Mike is one of the kind sponsors of our fixture cards. He raises a lot of money for charity by taking on some quite stiff challenges, despite being blind.
Along with son Campbell he will be taking part in the Three Peaks Challenge on the 12th September, which involves climbing the three highest peaks in England, Wales and Scotland. He is raising money for SNAP. Originally planned for 3 days, Mike now hopes they can complete it 24 hours!
You can donate direct to his JustGiving page or you can drop cash or a cheque made payable to SNAP into Crushes Manor Clinic, 501 Ongar Road.
