Happy New Year. Last night was spent getting plastered. I drained the last of my champagne as the pre bong Ben chimes rang out of my television speakers and then stayed up for a further two hours gasping alternately in horror and admiration at Jools Holland's Hootenanny.
So here we are. In order to raise some money for charity, keep you interested and provide me with an incentive to stay off the booze in 2014, I have set up a donations page. With a twist.
Every pound you donate will go to charity. If I cave and have a drink at any stage in 2014, your money will still go to charity, but I will also refund double your donation out of my own pocket. Like an old-fashioned bet.
So why not click on the link (or if you're having difficulty, copy and paste this:
into your web browser), donate a tenner, and then spend all of 2014 constantly badgering me to go for a drink so you can get double your money back, still raise money for some excellent charities and have a right old laugh at my expense.
