Heheh, cheers Steve! First time I've done any volunteer work - been on my
mind lately that I should be less selfish, so when the opportunity presented
itself, I said WTF I'll do it!


Kath took the biggest single donation of the night at our own call centre -
2K£!

We were just one of IIRC ~130 individual buildings set up as a 'virtual call
centre', manned entirely by volunteers, a total of about 30,000 of us. I had
people pledging money that were drunk, in fits of laughter, cheerful, and
some down right upset by it all and in floods of tears. It was quite bizarre
indeed! We even had people call from other countries, including Malta, and
even Poland FFS!

Good point. There's nothing I hate more than people without much money
or material belongings. Yuck!
