Fundraising Milestone

I'm pleased to report that the first major fundraising milestone has been passed for the Australia 2013 campaign. Thanks to the sale of Run Geordie Run t-shirts the £10,000 barrier has been broken. The grand total for The Sir Bobby Robson Foundation and The Children's Foundation stands at £10,009.67.

It's still very early days but that's a great start to fundraising and the chances of reaching the £50,000 target became just that bit more realistic.

Thank you to everybody who has made a donation or bought a t-shirt. Your money has gone to 2 very worthy causes and will be put to very good use.

Speaking of t-shirts, the new Run Geordie Run t-shirt in technical fabric is now completely sold out. There are no plans to have any more made. Unless, of course, a generous business out there would like to pay for some more to be made. There is still a handful of cotton ones though so all is not lost if you would like to buy one.

The t-shirts were only printed last Friday. I personally thought that the technical ones would sell out by the end of February. To be sold out within 6 days is testament to the amazing generosity of so many people. There is the small matter of the clever design by Dave Shenton and the generosity of Benfield Motor Group who paid for their production.

The remaining sizes for cotton t-shirts are medium and large. The cotton t-shirt is £10 with the full £10 going to charity.
