Generosity knows no bounds!

Raising money for a charitable cause is a slow cumulative process, but very satisfying nevertheless. People donate spontaneously by putting a hand in purse or pocket and giving loose change (sometimes referred to as shrapnel).
Sometimes people go away to think about it, and a donation arrives by cheque or banknotes.
Others, happy to use a credit card, will go to an online giving site and frequently donate substantial amounts. For the Children in Syria Appeal we’ve seen donations of


£100 and £150 ……. but when I saw one recently for £1000, I was simply left stunned.
A huge thank you to Ian! Your kindness will have a massive impact on the welfare of refugee children.

In the meantime, what does this sign tell me? Massive hill, yes, but definitely not downhill!

  1. Congratulations! As for the sign, I would be mildly concerned about what caused so many significant dents in it and the likelihood it might do something similar to me.


  2. Thanks Steve. You haven’t seen my body armour!


  3. Thought about you today as I waded mid thigh through the Kim on my Sunday run. Hope the weather is better with you and wind is pushing you up those hills!


  4. Thanks David. As you wade thigh deep, I look out from the picture framed kitchen window over Auckland harbour. After 4 nights camping I’ve just had the luxury of of a real bed in the house of friends.


  5. That is a massive donation and will make a huge difference to reaching your target.
