#FatherBristmas – The Results

Wow. Just wow.

Bristol is incredible. I aimed for #FatherBristmas to raise £250. Thanks to the city’s incredible generosity, the final total was…


That will make such a difference to young people in Bristol. That is enough for TWENTY full courses of mental health therapy for young people, with two extra one-to-one sessions thrown in. Thank you Bristol. Thank you so much for making this happen. You’ve all saved yourself from the naughty list. Even some people from Bath escaped it!

But I also hear some other questions. What about the prizes? Did I win the pies? When can I hang up my art? Well, the balls were polished, we chose machine number 4 (“Brunel”) and pulled lots of names out of many a Santa hat. And the winners are…
