SEQUINSKATE | Monday, July 18, 2022

#SEQUINSKATE: it happened, mainly thanks to @conroybryony lending me her hotpants and @saffstickles pinning them to my actual pants, additional support from @sparkyspx, @lolainlondon and @brian_beaver, and general good vibes from everyone on the Sunday Stroll team. I’m 48½ and this is NOT happening again. Over £1100 raised for @sheltercharity [ [ LINK IN BIO ] ] and I have a slightly more positive body image of myself, which was completely unexpected, so there’s a tale for @_bodygossip. Shortish skate, 9 miles in the heat, but great tunes from @steve.brown.58323431 and big shout to #Northops for setting the challenge, creating the fundraiser, raising most of the cash in minutes, and being the most prestigious tech community around. Join them on Slack! #skate #charity #hotpants #london

#HOTTERTHANJULY: the glorious crew at #Northops have raised over £1000 for @sheltercharity if I #skate through #London on the #SundayStroll wearing these - and we are in for next Sunday, weather will be 33℃, and while nobody needs to see a middle-aged man doing this, at least I don’t have to worry about being cold. #HotPants #sequins #rosabloom - borrowed from @conroybryony and being fitted by @saffstickles - so I’d better not fall over… #shelter #endhomelessness
