Chocolatey salty balls! £15k is an epic target. Great that SWFUK can say it's members had some small part in that amazing total. Hope the convalescence is going well, Neil. Take it easy (except when dispatching goodies from Iain :D) and get well soon.

Dave has been able to order the equipment and has since been delivered. I promise that now I'm back on my feet, I'll get the draw done and post up the results.

Thanks again guys
Neil.


Well done, and for a great cause. :D

First, I am so sorry for how long this has taken. I really appreciate your patience. When I started this I never imagined so many thinks could get in the way. The equipment has been delivered and the family get their training on Tuesday. Dave has said that he will send pictures of her using her new gear so that I can share with you. The is also enough cash left to get her brother an iMac that syncs with her equipment. Anyway, back to the draw. I've just spend a couple of hours preparing and cutting up the names for the draw. It seems getting together with the family is quite a challenge this close to Christmas, so rather than keeping you lovely people waiting longer than I already have, my boys will do the draw tomorrow morning. I will update the thread as the numbers come out, and publish a full list of winners along with supporting pictures at the end.
Thanks again for your support and patience, and I hope you all get something nice!!
Kind regards
Neil
