Back in June, July and August, my friends at Digital Spark Ltd offered some superb fundraising support in the form of 2 quite unique schemes.
Firstly, they pledged to make donations to incentivise people to follow me on Twitter. The sums were £100 for 1000 followers before the end of June, £200 for 2000 followers before the end of July and £300 for 3000 followers before the end of August. Thankfully, all of those follower targets were reached. The pledges didn't stop there, however. For every Run Geordie Run t-shirt sold in August, Digital Spark Ltd pledged to donate £5 to the 2 charities. This scheme yielded an extra £535 for St Benedict's Hospice and The Children's Foundation.
Amazingly, Digital Spark's contribution to the 2 charities hasn't stopped there and I'm very pleased to announce that they are now my main kit sponsor. Their total contribution to the 2 charities is now £2,000 and was paid via my 2 justgiving pages this week.
At the time of writing, a very impressive £20,206.34 has been raised. Thanks to Digital Spark for their support. Thanks also to those kind folk who have sponsored me, bought a t-shirt, bought a CD or signed up to the "3000 scheme".
