Sponsor me to spell (please!)

I’ve volunteered to be part of Mencap’s spellathon, and have agreed to learn to correctly spell 2,500 of what Mencap claim are English’s hardest words. I think there’s also some backwards spelling involved, just in case ordinary spelling should prove too straightforward.

I’m looking for anybody to sponsor my achievement of this mountainous feat in aid of Mencap, who provide all sorts of support for people with learning disabilities. I worked with children with combined learning disabilities and mental health problems for a few weeks in 2007, and can testify that it’s a very worthy cause.

A penny a word – i.e. a donation of £25 – would be absolutely fantastic, but times are hard, and I’ll more than happily take anything that’s going. I can only accept donations via the JustGiving page Mencap has created for me, so click through and be generous.

Right, I’m off to eat a dictionary…
