    To all members of tMP.
    As my sister is not a member of tMP but my mum had been an avid brass bander for 50 years plus I was asked on her behalf to post this appeal to members of the tMP community. Many of the members here will have known or met my mum at some point so I thought this would be a good place to reach a wider audience.

    "My name is Emma Taylor, I am Beryl Taylor-Wilkinsons daughter. I am undertaking the challenge of a lifetime and would really like your help. I am doing a trek of the great Wall of China from the 24th September 2010 to the 30th September in mums memory and really need your help.

    As most of you know me you will know that my mum very recently lost her battle with cancer. She was a fighter but recieved most of her treatment from the caring individuals at the oncology centre at Jimmys. She was put on chemo trials, she underwent therapies when there was thought to be no more that could be done, and her will and spirit was spured on by the individuals that she met and that supported her. I realise that I am one of the lucky ones who actually get that precious time that a centre like this offers, but I also realise that there are hundreds, if not thousands of people who do not get the gift of time that I was so lucky to get. So its for these people that I am doing this trek, because at the end of the day, there is no greater gift than the gift of time.
