"We receive no direct funding from the government or National Lottery, so we depend on the generosity of our supporters to raise the £750,000 it takes each month to keep us operational and saving lives.

"Money is still coming in, but by the time we have received all the sponsorship from participants we hope to have raised several thousand pounds, so well done everyone!"
