Skinny Dip Sponsorship Results– The Score on the Door
This is likely to be the final word on the 2013 North-East Skinny Dip held at Druridge Bay on 22 September 2013. The virgin giving page is closing today and the amounts of cash raised by Yours Truly and his generous sponsors, and, where the money went, is as follows: Amount raised on-line, including donations from the UK government exchequer £267.50 Amount raised off-line from family, friends and sponsor form £100 Total £367.50 This was disbursed as follows: Mind (national mental health charity) £183.75 National Trust £133.75 St Catherine’s Community Centre in Crook £50.00
So, I’m fairly chuffed with that. Thanks to everybody who stumped up I’ll probably do it again next year, but its unlikely that I’ll be asking for sponsors – I’ve never been keen on the sponsorship thing for raising charity money, even though it might be effective. But I might do something where people who dish out the spondoolies actually get something material in return. The thinking cap is on… ouch…..

I used to have my pet dog Bruno with me (in the front page pic). he was Superdawg but he died. Now I have Lucky the pup. He's a bit like Bruno, only smaller and more suspicious.
