In amongst the various people I've been tagging on Twitter about my #charity #abseil
, I thought I'd include #RichardOsman
. Yes, him off the telly.
He and I have a lot in common after all. We're both tall, handsome, friendly, witty and clever, a lot of what we do and say is utterly #Pointless
(get it?*) - and, in all seriousness, he also has #Nystagmus
like myself, which he has spoken about before.
It was a long shot, but I figured there was no harm in trying. At best, I hoped he might like the tweet, or maybe share it if I'm lucky.
But he's just #donated
£250 (+ £62.50 Gift Aid)!! Genuinely! 😲
That's £312.50 from a #celebrity
, and one of the nicest ones who I've long been a fan of! And yes, it really is him, he replied to my thank you message on Twitter.
That is far beyond anything I could ever have hoped for when doing this #fundraising
, and sends me soaring to £765! And I'm not sure I'll ever get over the #shock
so very, very much to Mr Osman, that means the absolute world to me to have your #endorsement
And there are still 3 days to go if others still want to #donate
before the abseil takes place. Doesn't have to be anything of Mr Osman's size, obviously - even just £5 or £10 makes a huge difference and is very greatly appreciated! 😉
(*Pointless is the brilliant TV quiz show he co-hosts, if you don't get the reference!)
