Comment posted Martha Payne and NeverSeconds hit fund raising target: new kitchen for Mary’s Meals by Lundavra.

Don’t forget to add Gift Aid.

At the moment it is

Total raised £39,257.24
Gift Aid £7,091.17

So the total is £46,348.41

Beginning to wonder whether it is going to end in six figures.

Lundavra also commented

  • The appeal is getting very close to six figures – £97,676.76 (including Gift Aid). Fantastic achievement!
  • The Daily Record have rewritten the story now and do not mention their shameful attack on the dinner ladies. An apology and large donation to Mary’s Meals (perhaps a promise to match donations through Martha’s appeal?) might help excuse their stupidity.

    That report on pay levels of news reporters sounded very dubious from the few details I saw. I was not convinced they were comparing like with like.

    I don’t have a lot of faith in Sturgeon’s claims of a Scottish independence ‘listening exercise’. I suspect that it is going to be very selective ‘listening’ to just the party faithful.

    I am remember complaining years ago about the number of cars that I saw off the road with nothing to indicate whether they had been there for days or recently happened and someone possibly inside (of course with the Police Service of Scotland both could be the case).

    Elsewhere it was normal to see a ‘POLICE AWARE’ sticker on the car. At least now it is more common to see some police incident tape or a cone but after the Police Service of Scotland blunder I might have expected them to have a policy of clearly marking accidents that had been dealt with.

    Yes that is the usual advice.

    You can use Recall on the phone to get dial tone back but few people are familiar with that.

    BT are said have shortened the time-out period but I don’t think other companies have.

    Also be very careful if they tell you to put the phone down then call them back, they could hold the line open – this is said to have been fixed on BT by reducing the time that the connection is held but I would still be very careful.
