Peter's Pies Pays!

More pleasing news to report! The potentially lucrative deal with Peter's Pies was announced on yesterday:

"Mark has now agreed a PFI - that's a Pie Finance Agreement - to boost his fund-raising efforts. For every £1 donated between now and the end of 2009, Peters Pies have pledged to add 50p to that total, meaning that for every £10 fund-raising T shirt Mark sells, an extra £5 will be raised.".

Within hours of that announcement, £70 worth of pledges and t-shirt purchases from readers had been paid to the two charities via Straight away, Peter's Pies were committed to matching half of that sum and added £35 to the total. Now you don't need to be a genius to realise that the princely sum of £105 had been raised. Now some of that total will also attract Gift Aid so those kind sponsors £70 is actually worth much more to the two charities.

I've since had enquiries for 10 t-shirts and if these payments are made then another £100 plus £50 Peter's Pies money will be on it's way to St Benedict's Hospice and The Children's Foundation. Brilliant!

Don't forget folks, that the generous Peter's Pies offer of matching 50p in the £1 expires at midnight on 31/12/2009. Therefore, please, please, please help me make them pay as much cash as possible to the 2 charities on top of your kind pledge before then. We don't have long.

Also, don't forget that you don't just have to make a pledge without getting anything in return.
