As you read this, our friend Neil Perryman is either on a plane to Africa, in Africa preparing for his climb of Mount Kilimanjaro, or at the very top of the mountain itself, admiring the view and his accomplishment whilst breathing deeply into a respirator.
We only met Neil for the first time in February at Gallifrey 20 in Los Angeles, but we here at Radio Free Skaro immediately hit if off with him, along with the rest of the Tachyon TV entourage. When we heard that Neil was joining an expedition to climb Kilimanjaro for charity, we knew that we had to do our best to help, so we implored you, our dear listeners, to come forward and give what you could towards this noble cause.
And you all came through in spades. Neil’s target of raising £3,000 was shattered by almost £1,000 thanks to numerous generous donations. Well over £400 (a very conservative estimate indeed) was donated by Radio Free Skaro listeners, or, at least by people who were kind enough to mentions us when they donated.
Thank you, everyone, not only for all your kind donations to UNICEF, but for listening to us prattle on week after week about Neil’s worthy trek. Most of you have never even met any of us, or Neil, yet you still freely gave what money you could. We really appreciate what you have contributed to the cause, and we know that Neil is very humbled and pleased, as well.
Thanks again, and please note that donations can still be given to Neil’s cause until January 2010 by visiting the Just Giving website.
