On Wednesday Morning, I was very pleased to get this message from Phil Boardman, who is fundraising using Justgiving with the coast2coastrun. He wrote to let the donors know his news:
There’s now only 2 days until Ian and I start running and I wanted to thank you all for sponsoring us. You’ve been incredibly generous and will be happy to know that we’re getting very near to our target.
We set out to raise £5000 for MS Research and we have currently (as of 07:30 this morning) got to £4742. If we added Gift Aid to this we would have smashed it but we still hope to get the extra £258 outright by the time we finish running.
I have a Facebook page that I plan to update during the week we’re away with photos and videos, as long as I can find a connection!
Thank you, thank you, thank you – I hope we give the mountains a good beating and make you all proud.
I bet all were pleased to hear from this intrepid funraiser. I could not help myself chuckle! What if just £108 arrived? Would they get wings?
