    I believe that if you make a personal Gift payment rather than pay for goods or services this is charge free.

    Log into Paypal, go to 'Send Money' tab
    Click on the Personal tab about half way down the screen
    Select Gift

    Just to say - I have now created my own JustGiving page. I'll cover any fees it raises.

    http://www.justgiving.com/gareth-edmondson/

    The money already paid to me by Edugeekers will be transferred over straight away.

    Come on everyone...... give £1 to a good cause.

    Gareth Edmondson is fundraising for British Heart Foundation - JustGiving

    Every penny + gift aid goes to the charity - The British Heart Foundation.

    Maybe I shouldn't be begging for your charity here - but you never know how good an organisation are until you need them and then you change your opinion. Someone here may need their services one day.

    Getting ready this evening the ride - bike ready. Everything is in place.

    Let's go............

    Thanks everyone,

    GJE

    All done. We did the 29 miles in 2:20 - not the best pace. 5 minute miles was the aim of the game so we averaged 4.83.

    Official pictures were taken if anyone is interested. I shall post one here so those that did donate can see their money went to a good place.

    Thanks everyone for your support.

    (and I'm sure anyone who benefits from the work of the BHF).
