Sponsorship landmark for St Benedict's Hospice

The element of the charity fund for St Benedict's Hospice (Charity No. 1019410) passed through the £4,000 mark this afternoon. Sales of Run Geordie Run t-shirts have helped push the total up this week. The current total for The Children's Foundation (Charity No. 1000013) is £4,878.50 giving an overall charity fund total of £8,883.20.

Given that the run is just over 12 months away that sum of money is quite amazing, with people from all over the globe contributing. I really do wonder sometimes how much money can be raised during the run for these 2 amazing charities.

Thanks, once again, to everyone who has bought a Run Geordie Run t-shirt. I have been busy all week packing and posting them. The final ones from this batch should be posted on Monday. Watch out for them coming through your letterbox.
