As there was no winner in this year's short story competition, I have forwarded the prize money in its entirety to the UK international charity Comic Relief.
I spoke by phone to somebody at Comic Relief and was told that they would issue a certificate of receipt, a copy of which I will post here*.
Thanks again to all who entered and to all those who helped with and supported the competition.
I have in mind an interesting new project, which will involve beer and will take place in an actual brewery. Watch this space.
* Update: Thank you letter from Comic Relief
