Pete, the excellent Half-head challenge chief poobah and bean counter, has finally got to the end of working out how much money we made in September by shaving our heads in half down the middle.
Pete says… “In the end, we raised a rather large Ã¯Â¿Â½1333.73 to split between the Big Issue Foundation and Jimmy’s NightShelter, so sincere thanks to everyone who either sponsored myself, Guy,Francis or Pete, or donated online, or donated on the day, or generally helped out with any of the organising bits and pieces. Even better – after Gift Aid (which allows the charities involved to recoup from the government 28.5% of money donated if the person donating the money gave their permission), the total rockets up to over Ã¯Â¿Â½1600! Excellent stuff!“
Thank you to everyone who sponsored us!
And congratulations to Pete for organising such an original and successful event. It was his first charity fundraising, and I don’t know about you but I’m looking forward to seeing what he manages to do when he’s a wizened veteran. Storming!
