Instant knighthood IMHO he's done more for the spirits of the country than many other knights of the realm, not to mention the good causes this money will help.

It's wonderful , yes and of of course he deserves recognition and praise , But I also wonder why this is  happening.

Is it the identity and back story of the fund raiser which has made people give ? Almost certainly . So , if someone unpopular -  a disgraced politician ,  or even a Philip Green figure , had done a high profile and selfless piece of fundraising , would it work so well , even when the objective is identical ? I somehow doubt it - so what is fuelling the desire to give - the fundraiser or the objective ? .  ,  .  

In years to come , 2020 British society will be rich picking for a  PhD .

John - the BBC Breakfast programme took it on board, rolled with it & actively promoted it. So with a 'few' million people watching the morning paranoia & anxiety update that the BBC seemed to like giving (other channels are available) this was a distraction whereby people could feel good by contributing.

A good effort, but as mentioned the money trail audit had better be good. Think of the medical equipment that could be purchased let alone all the support for staff.

I sincerely wish that my charity could pull in even one twentieth of the running total - we would be in heaven. And solvent for a few years!

Happy Birthday, it does seem rather fitting that the nicest story to come out of this so far is one which also went viral.
