Click here to watch a video of the day too.
Hello again everyone.
Right, I thought we could have some fun with this one.
We have got a petition to hand in at Downing Street and I thought you could all come along with us.
It's now 8.45pm on Tuesday and the plan is to be there around 12pm tomorrow.
So rather than just write about it I thought we could post live hourly updates throughout the day and try and stick some pictures in as we go along too.
Might be a bit rough round the edges but this is probably going to be the last big outing I make so why not make the most of it?
First of all just a little update on my health.
Thank you to everyone who has asked.
I am shattered. My energy levels are terrible and every time my stomach seems to be improving it just kicks off again.
Managed to get out in my car this weekend and had one last night in my Sheffield flat.
It was a wonderful sense of independence again.
I'm really pleased I got to say goodbye to my home in High Green - I loved that place - but there was a strange mixture of happy memories tainted with unrelenting tragedy.
Not many humans go so quickly from planning their own wedding to planning their own funeral. More on that in a future post.
As for this morning I just felt really sick.
I got the car back to my parents, then crashed out and slept for much of the afternoon.
Hoping to save up some energy for tomorrow.
Tuesday - 10pm Examiner reporter Katie Campling arrives at the media hub (my parents' house) and my mum feeds her. Spend time discussing tomorrow. Looks like train is at 9am from Derby.
We were going to be picked up in a ministerial car from St Pancras station but now it looks like it's going to be super Kali Mountford MP's Ford Mondeo - live the dream!
Spent time letting all the media people know about it. This has been a bit short notice but both really looking forward to it.
Hoping our petition can creep up into 6th place in the country as the day progresses. The actual closing time is midnight we think.
Time for sleep.
Wednesday - 6.30am. Sort of wake up. Really tired but know if I fall back to sleep will be even harder to get going. Fire up the computer and great to see so many of you commenting. Thanks very much. Stomach not great but so far so good. Going to try some breakfast.
Wednesday - 8.10am. Off in the car to Derby Station. Beanie hat and suit donned. Absolutely exhausted!
Hoping to rest up in car and train.
Petition latest: 10,678
Wednesday - 8:52am. Hi its Liam here, I will be helping update the blog whilst our friend Adrian is out and about. This means whilst he is out having an adventure I'll be sitting in here typing away on a computer. I'm kind of like Alfred the Butler, to Adrian's Batman.
Petition just jumped up to: 10,684
Wednesday - 9:04am Train from Derby as seen above. Mum and Dad weren't sure what to get me for my birthday, so they decided to upgrade me to 1st class, really kind of them. Apologies for the picture. This update is for my little friend Ryan Patrick, from the USA. He's a bit poorly at the moment and he loves trains like me! These are the big intercity trains that travels from the North to South of England. Get well Soon!
Tune into Radio 5 Live at 11:30am they're covering this story.
Wednesday - 10.30am First Class baby. Living the dream on steroids and Red Bull. Next stop St Pancras London. I am starting to pick up a bit now. Radio 5 Live are going to call my moblie at 11.30am. Katie and I have now arranged to meet the local tv news, channel5 news and the Press Association outside number 10. Phones haven't stopped ringing all morning. Good fun though.
Petition update: 10,717 - Lets keep going.
Wednesday - 10:58am Liam here again gang. I'm sitting here waiting for a picture from Adrian and Katie, so I thought I would treat you to a picture of yours truly in the mean time, as requested. Its a picture of me working on this very blog taken a few minutes ago. Do you like the hat? I bought it on the Las Vegas trip - why should Adrian be the only one who gets to wear cool hats? Will add Adrian's pic as soon as it arrives.
Wednesday - 11:06 Slight change of plans. Had to hop in a cab. Heading towards House of Commons will rendezvous with Kali, the rest of the team and the Mondeo at St Stephen's entrance.
Petition update: 10,724 - Looking good
Wednesday 11:42 - Adrian is a bit busy at the moment, by my calculations he should be getting interviewed now. I'm waiting on an update from him hopefully some of you have been able to listen to him or his story on Radio 5 Live. - Liam
Wednesday 12:06 - We are here. Pimp my Mondeo
Wednesday 13:35 - I've just had a phone call from Adrian. Things are going really well, he's a bit tired but in his own words "doing plenty of media whoring". Hes just having a bit of lunch and will be sending us some updates shortly.
Wednesday 14:27 - Some more updates from Adrian. They have only just arrived, so seem a little out of sequence but here they are
11:45am - Jeremy Clarkson will kill me. On closer inspection it's not a Mondeo; actually it's a Ghia. Or is it a Mondeo, Ghia? Still loving it though. Randomly bumped into Ed Balls at Westminster. He said: 'I'm supposed to be seeing you in 5 minutes!' Finished 5live interview and headed over to Downing Street.
12:00 pm - arrive at Downing Street. Great feeling driving through the gates. Big Grandma and friend Jamie cheering us on as gates opened up. Small media circus awaited us too. Felt like a Z list celebrity. Ed balls running a bit late so had lots of opportunity to have pictures taken, speak to the media and do filming.
12:15 pm - Enter Number 10 Downing Street and meet with Ed Balls in one of the many rooms. Hand over petition. Really good meeting. Very receptive as ever. Discussed the difficulties in making it compulsory for colleges: nevertheless, he said the government was determined to do all it could to back the campaign and make it an annual feature. Chatted for about 15 min. Stomach just about behaving but getting very hot and run down. Given a really interesting tour of number 10. Saw the famous staircase with the portraits of all the Prime Ministers on.
13:00 - Back outside, completed round of media interviews. Lots of interest. Out on Yorkshire news, Channel 5 news and hopefully Sky news as well tonight. Drive back over to Westminster for lunch with the campaign dream team, Kali, Katie, Caroline and Ian.
14:30 - finishing lunch and heading over to complete last media interview. Getting increasingly tired. Looking forward to bed later.
Petition update: 10,849 - we've just overtook the campaign to "ensure there is a Lasting Legacy for Shooting Sports in the UK by moving the venue away from the Woolwich Barracks"
15:00 Liam again. Got some pictures of the campaign dream team to share with you. These pictures come courtesy of Stephen Butler.
From all accounts its been a very successful but busy day.
Here are the dream team
and the man of the hour, Adrian himself
16.30pm - Say goodbye to Kali Mountford and Ian at Westminster. Jump in a taxi and head back to St Pancras. Hop on the train back to Derby and just relaxing with a glass of red wine.
Katie is writing her report for The Huddersfield Examiner. I am shattered and really looking forward to a good lie down. It has been an excellent day and I have enjoyed every minute of it. I really hope all this work will make a lasting difference. Train due back into Derby at 5.56pm
17:14 - At this time the petition stands at 10,977 which is a fantastic result. Adrian is really happy with how things have gone. Thank you everyone who has signed the petition. If you think today was exciting tune in tomorrow. We will be playing Adrian's Desert Island discs from BBC Sheffield. It's going to be a great post. best wishes to you all and thanks for the kind comments about my rocking hat. For the record I'm actually 25 not 15, but I'll admit the picture did make me look young :o)
10.30pm What a brilliant day. Got home around 6.30pm and had tea with Katie and another really good friend Sian. My parents told me how proud they were of me too.
In bed just reading through all your wonderful comments and wanted to say how much fun writing today's post has been. I think we have really embraced the multi-media format well and thanks for all sharing such a great day out.
Special thanks to Liam who has really worked hard today on this - despite trying to do his normal duties. My parents for the lifts, feeding and taking notes over the phone to file through to Liam.
Also a huge shout out to Katie Campling for all her efforts behind the scenes. The same goes to Caroline Berger of the Anthony Nolan Trust but most of all Kali Mountford MP and her office manager Ian Leedham who have put so much time and energy into pulling all this off.
Thank you to you all and for making this day possible.
