Pic A Day – April 26th 2009

Donkey

Monica was marshalling at the London Marathon today (she was at the finish, snipping microchips from shoes – and she has entered the marshal’s ballot for 2010).

I went to the east end (I’d never been on the DLR before, it’s great!) – and in Greenwich, I saw this sorry looking donkey, a superb fancy dress – the runner was quite a way behind the pace!

The runner was drawing attention to the Society for the Protection of Animals Abroad.

SPANA is a UK charity saving animals in the poorest countries in the world. But we are not an ordinary animal charity. We know that working animals ensure that families can make a living. If an animal falls sick or is injured, then the family it supports may go hungry and fall deeper into poverty. We believe that by ensuring a working animal is well and healthy, it can make even more of a contribution to the lives of those who depend on it.

Josh Lewsey Wasps thrashed Gloucester 34-3 today. It was a great display (though the ref had a shocker).

The game was Josh Lewsey’s last for Wasps, and it was a fitting end for him.

With a bonus point win, wasps moved up to 7th place in the premiership, on paper, Wasps may just get a Heineken Cup place if the results in the European Challenge cup go our way (we need Bourgoin to win the ERC, I’m not entirely sure of all the ins and outs of the rules regarding this, though).

Gloucester finish 6th, having lead the table for quite a while, they’ve choked at the end of the season and have missed out.
