FACEBOOK: Great way to raise funds

Thank you to everyone who donated to my chosen charity, the Great North Air Ambulance Service, for my birthday this year.

The total raised was £125, with £65 of that coming from Facebook donations.

In the age of fake news and anonymous blogs, Facebook often gets bad press. However, its recently added fund-raisers feature has helped raise millions for worthy causes.

It’s a great way to spread the word and I’d encourage anyone to get involved.
