Well, all the sponsorship for the cross-Channel row is now in and counted and The Channel Four are delighted to announce that your donations have resulted in an incredible £10,861.48, equal to £12,184.73 with Gift Aid. All of your kind support is the equivalent to 609 hours a Marie Curie nurse’s time in patients’ homes or 67 full nine-hour overnight shifts. Alternatively it will cover the cost for Marie Curie of running the Marie Curie Hospice Hampstead for two days. Having visited the hospice we have had a glimpse of just how valuable this is. The row is dedicated to Toby Atkinson, an inspirational chap who himself was greatly helped by Marie Curie.
The crew – Chris Dom, Pete and Peter – would like to say a huge ‘thank you’ to each and every one of you who sponsored the row and special thanks for the backing of Hitachi Data Systems and BT Engage IT. We’d also like to say another huge thank you to our support crew on the day who braved the weather with us.
The blisters have now healed!
