Stuart's Big Stadium Sit Down

Tuesday 22 August 2023

Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, London

As a group of old friends, we are taking on the challenge of sitting on thousands of seats in the Spurs stadium to help raise awareness of MND and support Stuart and his family as they tackle life with this cruel disease.

We are five old school friends, now in our 60’s, who have known each other for over 50 years. We are Bruce MacCabe (centre of picture below), Mark Fielding, Bob Clarke, Scott Lewis and Steve Pettingill.

We are aiming to raise £5000 for the My Name`5 Doddie Foundation. The vision of the Foundation is simple: A World Free of MND.

Bruce’s son Stuart was diagnosed in September 2022 with Motor Neuron Disease (MND) at the age of 34, and not long after the birth of his daughter, who has recently passed her first birthday.

Bruce and his wife Steph wanted to do something to help fight MND, it needed to be something that we could all achieve and has meaning to us and Stuart. Bruce and Mark have been going to Spurs games since 1969 and Stuart is also a fan.

The group of five came up with the idea that, between us (and a few more friends hopefully), we would try to sit in every seat in the iconic South Stand of the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium as many times as we could in the time allowed, maybe even achieving the equivalent of the stadium capacity of 62,800.

We are extremely grateful to Tottenham Hotspur Football Club for enabling us to access the Stadium and facilities for the day.

Additionally, the support we have received from the My Name`5 Doddie Foundation has been invaluable in helping us to make the Challenge happen.

Thank you in anticipation of your kind support and donations. Support us if you can by donating using our Just Giving link or by sharing the link. With your generosity, our efforts will support the great work the My Name'5 Doddie Foundation is doing.
