As you can see from the screenshot above, I have just transferred the money raised in our birthday auctions to the tribute site at much-loved where you can see our message displayed if you scroll down below the tribute text. As shown, the total came to 2,092.81 £ – or 2,303.16 EUR. The already impressive total fundraiser through the tribute page for Mrs Armitage has been pushed by our donation from 14,167.21 £ to now 16,260.02 £. I am sure that friends and family of the Armitages have contributed to the much-loved fundraiser, but a large part – not only our auction proceeds – has come from fans. That feels very good – as a sign of appreciation of Richard, and – by extension – of his family. Well done to everyone, individual donors and auction supporters alike.

Once again – my thanks to everyone who supported the fundraiser in any way, monetary or not. You have done a great thing, and I am sure LOROS is going to put your donation to great use!
