£7,355.73 - raised for 'Shelter'
Well brethren, Easter, for most of us, was a very cold time and best spent indoors with the family, lots of Easter Eggs, time for reflection and general fun, however that was not the happy lot for our 'sleep out' hero - Scott Cargill.
As most of you will be aware he volunteered to spend a night out, sleeping on a park bench, to highlight our AMD charitable effort to raise money for 'Shelter'. During the night temperatures dropped to 1 degree !!! He has raised, via his 'Just Giving' web page, the magnificent sum of £6,432.23 which when we add £923.50 for Tax Relief we arrive at the grand total of £7,355.73. Well done Scott. This venture is to add to the money we are raising from our AMD mugs orders for which is progressing very well. I gave asked Scott to write a piece for the our website on his experiences which have been most interesting.
Brethren, mugs can be ordered from the website and Scott's 'Just Giving' page is at CLICK HERE if you would like to support his efforts.
I hope to see you out and about the District.
District Grand Prefect
