Fund to receive a boost via t-shirt sales.

Digital Spark Ltd have already donated £100 to the two charities as a result of @rungeordierun reaching 1000 followers on Twitter before the end of June. It looks odds on that a further £200 will be donated if I reach 2000 followers by the end of July.

I got some further good news today from Digital Spark Ltd. Much to my extreme gratitude, they are prepared to donate even more money to St Benedict's Hospice and The Children's Foundation. This time their scheme is that for every Run Geordie Run t-shirt bought between now and the end of August, Digital Spark Ltd will donate £5 to the two charities.

So you pay £10 (plus postage) and the charities receive a further £5 from Digital SparkLtd. And don't forget that, as per usual, the 2 charities receive every penny of that £10 (which is exactly how we at Run Geordie Run like to do our fundraising). 

So lets do the maths! For every £10 t-shirt sold, the charities actually receive £15.  Unbelievable!

T-Shirts (as modelled by myself and Sir Ranulph Fiennes above) are screen printed front and back for durability. The 2 charities logos can be seen on the front and the details of the 3100 mile run across the USA 2011 are on the back.

Colours and sizes available are:


Over 500 t-shirts have been sold already. Stocks are limited so please don't delay in ordering.

Run Geordie Run t-shirts can be ordered by clicking the big red button button below. Full instructions on how to pay will appear at the end of the order form. Payment can be made securely using a debit/credit card via or by cheque direct to charity. Either way, the money goes directly to charity. Brilliant!
