It was 12.4 million when I donated (not £600,000 in my case )
Amazing that one man can raise charity telethon sort of money.
He deserves a knighthood for his service, let alone this amazing feat. Did you see that he had a guard of honour - at an appropriate distance - for his final lap. I may have had something in my eye when I read that.
I see his Birthday is actually on the 30th April , I hope he gets at the very least a live hook up with the Queen as well as his Letter , they are of the same era I’d say they would have a good old natter about those days !
Anyone know anything about the NHS Charities Together Group?
It seems to be an amalgamation of hundreds of separate charities who each run fund-raising teams, but it isn't absolutely clear what they do with the money they raise [over £450 million donated in the last year, with outgoings of £1+ million a day]. It's a massive group with over 16 executive directors... providing wellbeing support for NHS staff.
