Yes, let's just "paws" for a minute! ;-)

But Alex et al, you're doing a great job for a great cause! Well done!

Pleased to have finally played a very small part in this project. Biff was on great form and it was good to meet Jill & Steve from Henshaws as it was obvious how pleased they were to be involved.

I know many have played a part, but Alex has quite obviously put his heart and soul (not to mention his credit card!) into getting Rib 4 Macmillan to this point, and I'd suggest it would not have happened but for his total commitment and dogged determination. By this afternoon he looked physically and emotionally drained, but I think we've managed to persuade him to take tomorrow off to recharge his batteries for the final push at the weekend.

Really hope there are people out there prepared to bid the sort of figure it deserves to make for Macmillan but those of you who've played a part should be very proud of the achievement, whatever the winning bid on Sunday.

Hit the wall today!

Had a great day, everyone has been so great!

I have to say the PSP Southampton Boat Show is great! I love it here, what fantastic place to end this project.

Everyone loves the boat, we have loads of people everyday pouring over the rib, it's been great.

Telling our story, countless times a day is very tough, what we have done really does move everyone.

Bucket donations are very low, but we're not here for donations, we're here to show off the great work and donations from you lot!

Every stand in the show knows of us, and every day the Rib 4 Macmillan gets a announcement with what it's all about!

I wish you could all be here to experience it, so please come along if you can!

I'm taking the day off tomorrow to chill out.

Thank you everyone, what an awesome project!

Come Sunday at 5pm , what will be will be

Alex

About time too!! You can't carry on giving 200% without a break. Without your dedication this project wouldn't have been anywhere so successful. Enjoy your day off.

He's right #PSPSBS14 has a fantastic atmosphere, and everyone we speak to loves us and our project. Even is it's only(!) to visit our stand you should come to the show.
