Front Page News!

Today I want to say a big 'Thank You' to the Bridlington Free Press (still only £1.05!) and to Senior Reporter, John Edwards. John is always supportive of charity fundraisers and local causes, but this week he and my local paper surpassed themselves in my eyes by giving me a call-out on the front page!

Normally, for athletics news, the paper uses stock photos, but last week John sent round a Free Press photographer who spent some time with me getting fresh pictures for the article. I was expecting maybe 12 to 15 column centimetres, and so was amazed to open my paper to find a half-page article devoted to my London Marathon fundraiser.

But (as the infomercials exclaim) that's not all! 

I also got another little teaser on page 2...

As a result of this coverage I saw a huge spike in hits and page views on and at least 2 or 3 donations.

And that was great news, as donations have been hard to come by, recently. I'm creeping up towards 20% of my target but that still leaves a L-O-N-G way to go... more than £2,000.00 more, in fact!
