this will probably be the final post on the blog and it is to let everyone know about the approximate final figure reached with our fundraising effort. Paul did a fantastic job around the hospital raising mostly cash, from his colleagues, friends and acquaintances and with Gift Aid added his total will reach over £1000.00. The Just Giving sites similarly will reach over £1100.00 and with Gift Aid will be close to £1500.
We are therefore looking at a figure close to £2500.00 to be divided equally between The Severn Hospice and The British Heart Foundation; we are absolutely delighted with this, it was our pleasure to walk for such worthy causes in memory of Tony.
We want to say to all of you who contibuted a huge thank you. We have been overwhelmed by your generosity. In the current difficult economic climate people have put their hands in their pockets because they have seen that others needs are greater than their own and for that you all deserve our deepest gratitude. You are too numerous to mention by name, you are spread around the world, you are all ages, but you have one thing in common, you care about others and you make the world a better place.
