We looked into setting up NMP on the "Just giving" site but I have to pay 15 a month to join and then they take a percentage of all funds raised.

So what I propose is that we just use my paypal account for any sponsorship money and I will then collate it and let Tom know how much he raised for NMP.

You can donate by clicking on this link:

http://www.nomorepanic.co.uk/misc.php?do=donate (http://www.nomorepanic.co.uk/misc.php?do=donate)

You can enter any amount you want to.

If you do not want to donate by Paypal (this will accept credit cards as well) then please PM me and you can send a cheque if you prefer.

If you do donate please let me know it is for Tom though.

Thanks so much to Tom for doing this for us and Good Luck !!!

Good Luck for Sunday Tom - hope the weather is good for you :yesyes:

11-02-12, 10:12
Shall be there in person cheering you on Tom - from the pub probably, but it's the thought that counts, plus you and NMP can have 20 of my money just for being crazy enough to leave the starting line, let alone anything else.

Best of luck for tomorrow Tom :yesyes:

11-02-12, 13:45
Ha Gary I would much rather do something crazy leave the start line and know there is a pub at the end. :p

I will let Tom update us further on the funds raised but thank you so much Tom for this - you are a complete star.
