Which football team do you support ? The Geriatric DJ, of course, supports SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY.  I never broadcast a single track in the studio without having my Wednesday scarf with me.


I love going to Hillsborough and soaking up the atmosphere of fun. When I can not make it to Hillsborough I always follow the boys on-line.

As a bit of fun and to help raise awareness I sponsor the goals the lads score for good causes. The whole project does not make a lot of money but then supporting a good cause does not always mean money !

One of the good causes the goals sponsor is Milton Keynes Winter Night Shelter which lovingly cares for our homeless and rough-sleeping friends across the harshest months of the year.

Here I am with Sara, Communications Manager for Milton Keynes Winter Night Shelter, proudly waving Sheffield Wednesday scarves with The Barclays Premier League Trophy.

I did try to nick the trophy and take it to Hillsborough - no not really but if the lads can score enough goals then it can be there by right.

In the twenty-first century it is absolutely disgusting that we need a food bank, not just in Milton Keynes where I live, but all round the world. Disgusting but thank goodness we have such a wonderful organisation.

As I promote The Food Bank I tell people not to simply toss a tin of beans or a packet of soup into a collection trolley in the supermarket but to stand back and think. Think about the person who will receive your gift, who needs your gift. Then wrap your gift in love before putting into the collection point.

I am an animal lover, I always have been. It was quite late in my life that I became a vegetarian. Before I saw the light my favourite meal was gammon steak and chips but NO MORE - NO WAY.

My music and I sponsor Piggie Alfie at Curly Tails Rescue Centre in Newton Longville.

So there are the three good causes I sponsor the goals the boys score:

Milton Keynes Winter Night Shelter

The Food Bank

Piggie Alfie At Curly Tails Pig Rescue

After every game I always write the the goal scorer to say THANK YOU and to explain where the sponsorship has gone.

Which football club do you support ?

Which good cause is close to your heart ?

Could this little story inspire you to sponsor the goals your team score for a good cause close to your heart

If every fan at every game did that what a wonderful thing that would be. Nicking West Ham's anthem - BLOW SOME BUBBLES OF LOVE !
