Lots of major Charity Chief Executives pay themselves obscene amounts of money, but then again lots of ordinary people put a lot of their own time and effort into participating in this event and many others.

They deserve your support not a criticism of the charity they are trying to raise money for at this time.

Put your soapbox away and come along to Mellor on Sunday.
