Skinny Dip Sponsorship Results– The Score on the Door

DSCN0594
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…..

Good show. Rather than trying for sponsorship, I reckon you should flog tickets for next year's performance - charging extra for those who wish to bring a camera!

Well done, good to know that a mental health charity has had the benefit of your efforts.

That telephoto lens isn't big enough.

Dawn - Not really brave - there was lots and lots of others (peer pressure)
Alan - You wouldn't want ...
JJ _ I'm scratching the brain for more fundraising ideas...
Alan - The water is quite cold, y'know...
