Since Alex and I completed our challenge two months ago to hike Offa’s Dyke in aid of MS Society – things have been pretty hectic. Dropping back into normality was surprisingly difficult and, along with my health scare, has meant tying up loose ends has progressed slowly.
Well – I have finally finished collating all the cash and cheques we received..
The total raised was:
(not including gift aid, made up of £606 received in cash and cheque donations and £3239 collected online)
To say we are totally blown away would be an understatement – when I originally came up with the idea (and bullied Alex into it) – we would never have believed that we could raise so much.
We would like to thank every single person who donated – you have all been amazingly generous, and your money will help make a real difference to everyone whose life is touched by MS.
We would also like to thank our sponsors, who helped make the challenge possible:
We would also like to thank everyone on Twitter and Facebook for supporting us before, during, and after our challenge – especially @gwenoldy, @jabberingjude, @pete_knight and @hoptonhousebnb – all your support really helped us keep going!
Finally I would like to thank Alex – @winkysmileyface. Thanks mate!
