Keith guessed the date and time of 19.30 on 31st October was just 35 seconds away from the exact time £4million was raised which was 19:30:35 on 31st October 2012.
The second was the big one!

“It’s amazing to see a child having so much fun, with their parents knowing they’re in safe hands while they get some much needed time to themselves, or getting that bit of time to spend with their other children. It costs Link Leisure around £89 to support a child with learning disabilities who needs one to one supervision at one of their Playscheme, so every penny really does count!” Jo, supporting Link Leisure
“We are raising money to bring Kenyan students over to our three link schools. They will never have been on a plane before so it will be a life changing experience for them.

I for one am extremely proud of them!” Cindy, supporting Dene Magna School Kenya Link – Mitcheldean

“Brathay Trust’s core aim is to work with some of the most vulnerable and hard to reach children and young adults in our country. The economy has hit our young people with high unemployment, lack of opportunities, reduced funding & our poorest families are even poorer. This type of unrestricted income is a fantastic boost, if it funds 1-3 opportunities to influence a vulnerable youth’s life forever it is worth its weight in gold. That’s why we love easyfundraising.org.uk, it’s free for supporters, we can engage our staff, it gets the message out there in so many ways. We know we do fantastic work we just need money like this to do it.” Tori, supporting Brathay Trust
