Great report Monkey, we just missed you in Belsay when coming back from a meeting in Gosforth. Well done everyone, can we know at some time how much money has been raised?

Rough figures off memory are raffle 4,500, Haggis Hike on Justgiving around 10k, then there will be a goodly amount from the dinner tickets etc so I will be very surprised if the whole shebang raises less than 20k, 25k would be better. Considering that Grimesy's original target was 10k, that isn't bad going.

He'l hate me for saying this, but I suspect Monkey of being a closet journo. Very nice piece.
