Hey. Guess what

15 Jan

 You know how some of you use Twitter and Facebook? Well you’ll know what I’m about to tell you. I know though there’s a fair few of you who don’t use them. And I suddenly realised, when I was picking up a lettuce tonight, that you might not know the latest bit of news. I’ve never found lettuces a good thought provider before, but I was grateful that this one was.

Because it’s pretty epic really. (The news, not the lettuce. That was just ordinary)

Did you know, that when you add up all the money you have raised through the inaugural art auction; the TKOE sales, the zumbathons, the Rocks for Rosie, the baby land snail sales, all the other fundraising you’ve done, and all the Race for Life stuff and direct donations, then you’ve raised around about £45,000.


That’s a rate of £850 per month.

That is astounding.

And then if you think that you’ve donated at least 60 units of blood now, you’ve saved or extended the lives of at least 60 people.

Just amazing. You are truly brilliant.

Here’s a celebratory photo Chris just unearthed.

    I LOVE the photo, am very partial to ice cream myself so am very happy that you chose this to celebrate £45,000 raised and all that blood donated. It is indeed a lot of money and a lot of blood, but these totals just reflect the massive Rosie effect / impact so not surprising at all.
    Well done everyone – yay!! x
