Just a quick note of thanks to the charities who are receiving your kind donations.
Despite my raising a relatively small amount of money compared to some people I have met, all four of the charities I am supporting have been in touch over the course of the last seven months.
Some have been kind enough to read this blog and correspond via twitter and email. It has served as a reminder that there are some wonderful, engaged and enthusiastic people doing great things in the charitable sector, and I am delighted to have been put in touch with them, simply by being a conduit for your cash.
That is the one part of this project where there is only upside.
