A friend boasted to me that on Wednesday he made a 250% profit on a £100 investment.
Within minutes of the pledge, a mystery gentleman announced he’d match all the donations pledged so far. Clearly not a Daily Mail reader. So my friend’s gift was doubled, as was the attendant Gift Aid (£28 x 2)*.
Can anyone beat that? Does this kind of thing happen anywhere else?
