Run Geordie Run t-shirts selling very well

Since the new Run Geordie Run t-shirts went on sale 2 weeks ago, over 100 have now sold in aid of The Sir Bobby Robson Foundation and The Children's Foundation. Last weekend was spent packing them up and I visited the Post Office this morning to get them sent off. 

It took 30 minutes to process all the packages. I tried not to look over my shoulder too much at the ever increasing queue of people behind me. I'm sure they wouldn't have minded if  they knew that it was all for a good cause.

There are t-shirts being sent all over the world with Australia leading the way on overseas orders. The USA is close behind in second place.

I think this particular design by Dave Shenton (pictured below) has really helped them sell well. Thanks again must go to Benfield Motor Group who paid for their production. It is because of Dave and Benfield's generosity that the entire amount paid for each t-shirt goes to charity. Brilliant!

T-shirt sales have helped the charity fund for The Sir Bobby Robson Foundation and The Children's Foundation burst through the £9000 barrier and the fund currently stands at £9,534.67. With a bit of continued generosity it shouldn't be too long before the £10,000 mark is reached.

Unlike previous years there are 2 versions of this t-shirt; a traditional cotton one and a "technical" one for use while out running and in the gym etc. The cotton t-shirts are available in sizes small, medium and large. The only sizes left in the technical version and medium and large.  The cotton t-shirt is £10 with the technical t-shirt priced at £12.
