I have just sponsored you

Thank you!

but in return I expect you to run round the course wearing a judge's wig and robes.

No thank you! :-P

(One of my colleagues says she'll double her (£5) donation if I run in a badger suit -- I'd gladly pay several times that not to run 10k in a badger suit.)

she just stuck the link in her email signature

Oh, that would've been sensible, yes. Bit late now though. :-}

if all the people who participated (including the organisation team) just dipped their hands in their pockets

Yeah. I like to hope that the sponsored events persuade some people who otherwise wouldn't give, or persuade people to give to a charity they wouldn't otherwise have given to because it's lower down their list, but I'm not convinced they work very well -- OTOH I guess MD is further down my list than the charities I already have standing orders to (or give time to), so I suppose the race at least gets me to give them some money that I wouldn't otherwise give ...

Can we start haggling for what it's worth for you to run in a badger suit?

I've sponsored you, this being a charity that I'd otherwise not get round to supporting.

Thank you for the sponsorship!

The badger suit would be quite hard to source by Sunday. But I'm prepared to start haggling for next year....
