  33. 33 Sandra Clark October 28, 2011 at 10:05 am I set mine up months ago and have already raised over half of the agreed amount. Great prize. Must keep going with the fund-raising

  34. 34 Antony (Virgin Money Giving) October 28, 2011 at 12:30 pm

    Hi Sandra,

    Well done on your fundraising so far.

    As you’re using JustGiving unfortunately you won’t be in the Virgin Money Giving prize draw to win the VIP Marathon upgrade, although you can switch your fundraising for the British Heart Foundation over by creating a page using the link above, and closing your JustGiving page.

    Virgin Money Giving

  35. 35 Sandra Clark October 29, 2011 at 10:21 pm

    How would that affect the funds I have raised so far?

  36. 36 Ann-Marie October 31, 2011 at 11:34 am

    It would’ve been nice to also include those that werent successful in the ballot, surely?

    With that being said, good luck to everyone who has entered

  37. 37 Antony (Virgin Money Giving) October 31, 2011 at 11:40 am

    Sandra – If you want to transfer your page over you can add the amount you’ve already raised to your Virgin Money Giving page as ‘offline fundraising’ you can also include peoples comments and names in your ‘my story’ section of the page.

    Ann Marie – The competition is open to anyone who has a place in the 2012 Virgin London Marathon, whether it’s come from the ballot, a charity. We can only ‘upgrade’ an existing marathon place, unfortunately if you’ve not been successful in the ballot, or haven’t received a place else where you can’t be a part of the prize draw. We’ve got more competitions planned, so keep an eye on our blog.
