Dear Geraldine, WOW!!!!
I just wanted to say a huge heartfelt thank you and your amazing
colleagues at all of the Webmart offices – north, south, and far north.

To say that you’ve given over and above the call of duty is an
understatement. Since I phoned this first thing morning and heard that
you’d gone on and on and on through the night and some of you had done
so with hardly any sleep and then when I rang at lunchtime and found
that you done over a *1000 miles between you, I really couldn’t believe
it. In fact, I honestly can’t even think about it without choking up.
I feel genuinely humbled and privileged that our charity was chosen to
be been helped in this truly challenging and demanding way.

You are a remarkable group of people. Not only will the funds that
you’ve raised be of immense benefit to the severely disabled people our
small team does our best to support but, equally importantly to us, the
morale boost that having such a wonderful bunch of people prepared to
give up their time AND energies in this way gives us is immense.

Please pass this on to all of your terrific colleagues – again, many,
many thanks for a truly remarkable achievement on our behalf and, just
imagine – if you could have got Spiderman to do a bit less posing and a
bit more running, goodness knows how many miles you’d have covered…
