Mac the Bear relives his travels with McCarthy & Stone...
Mac gives us his final thoughts on the relay and life post the event that took up so much of his time...
As I returned to my sun lounger to see several missed calls from Homelife House (McCarthy & Stone Head Office). After 3 weeks of island hopping around the Balearics I had started to erase the memory of my wet and windswept Relay with you all in April and May. In fact, I hear the weather hasn’t improved much since!
My saddle sores have finally healed and my fur has returned to a sun-kissed, golden tan colour, therefore I did have an element of dread as I phoned in to find out what could be so urgent. But it was absolutely fantastic news regarding the total amount of money raised.
I am extremely proud to say that now all the donations are in and counted, including Ali’s trip to Borneo, we have raised £20,002.80 (£18,621.52 + Gift Aid). This is an unbelievable achievement and is double our original target. I know that I have said it before, but thank you all so much for your participation and support. It really has been a great event for the Company.
So that is definitely it for me now, I am switching my phone off as its 30°C here and the San Miguels are going down a treat!
