Inspired by the bravery of a young girl, Stacey Mowle, a Tottenham Hotspur supporter who – five years ago – was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma (a very virulent and aggressive form of cancer) members of Spurs Supporters Spain have started raising money to assist the appeal in her name to get her to the USA for the treatment she so badly needs.
The Stacey Mowle Appeal needs to raise around half a million pounds and is already backed by the likes of former Spurs player Graham Roberts who is the Fundraising Ambassador for the Appeal, as well as numerous well known celebrities such as TV star Linda Robson, comedian Joe Pasquale, Embarrassing Bodies Doctor Pixie McKenna and many others.
Events have been staged across many counties in southern England including sponsored walks, runs, cycle rides, golf days and even skydives and abseils, as well as comedy nights and a pro-celebrity football match and now they are being staged here in southern Spain.
The first fundraising event by Spurs Supporters Spain was a variation on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge held at the end of August at Moores Bar and which raised 120 euros with eight club members accepting the challenge.
The next will cover the whole month of October and is again based on another cancer campaign – Go Sober for October – with club Secretary Graeme Clark agreeing to go through the entire month without drinking any alcohol.
Plans for November are already well advanced with a Legends Evening starring Graham Roberts and Stephen Sedgley to be staged jointly at Moores Bar and Marinasol restaurant in Cabo Roig on Saturday 15th November.
In addition, supporters of other football clubs have now come forward asking if they can take part in an event and have offered their assistance so the club is now organising a MowVember Challenge. This entails entrants not shaving for the whole of November and growing a beard or a moustache.
Supporters of Liverpool, Newcastle, West Ham and Stoke have already agreed so Spurs Supporters Spain need supporters of all other Premier League clubs and as many from other leagues, even other countries, to come forward to take part. Providing you are living on the southern Costa Blanca or surrounding areas you are eligible to take part.
