We've added a further £163.67 to the offline total raised, making that now £1,419.71 which, in turn, makes a Grand Total raised (so far) of £2,280.58.
This is FANTASTIC! We are both humbled and thankful that so many people have dug deep and helped the MS Trust like this.

OAFC went on to a 2:0 defeat at Swindon, but I'm here to detail that £163.67 for you.
£50.00 collected by Lesley J in a Guess-the-Name of the Snowman competition held among our neighbours - so they've helped out again!
£23.70 private cash collection from Lesley J too.
£20.00 cash donation, on the day, from Roy
£69.97 cash collection at Kings Chase on Wednesday 11th December (including a £20 sponsored donation that was Gift Aided - I will add in that figure once it has been ratified at MS Trust HQ. @HairyPete was getting rather chilly, despite the beard scarf and extra hair on top, when I rolled up at 2pm, so I encouraged him to finish by 3.30. He didn't argue!
This past week has proved how each pence raised helps to increase the Grand Total. Not just that, it also proves how much the public, family, friends and neighbours care. Another Thank You from us.
