It’s all over! Time to cough up!!

what left

So I haven’t posted in a couple of days, but I didn’t want to spam people with the constant food thing. Now’s the time to donate though folks as day 10 has been and gone, and it was bloody hard work!

For those who think I’ve been nipping off to KFC each and every day while taking your hard earned – check out the pic of the scales at the end.

I’ll post some more photographs over the coming days of all the remaining receipts, but needless to say it’s been a mix of fruit, porridge, bread, beans on toast and biscuits!

The leaving drinks proved almost as testing as the meal, and once again I didn’t join in, despite the claims of: “just do this…” and “just have a…”

Over the ten days I did have enough food left over that I could skip the last day, and spend the £1 on a lottery ticket. If I won anything, it would go to Save the Children. You can see the results below:


The tension is clearly palpable!


So close…


And yup, I’ve lost £1! I’ll pay the £1 to Save the Children anyway, so don’t worry.

Anyway, that’s that, at least in terms of living on £1 a day. It’s been a lot harder than I thought, and I have genuine sympathy for people who really do live below the poverty line.

If you know me, please help me out and donate. As I’ve said before, I’ve never asked for sponsorship money before, and I probably won’t ever again, so please be a friend and help me and Save the Children.

My JustGiving page is here so you can donate, and you can also text PHLL90 £3, PHLL90 £5 and PHLL90 £10 to 70070 to make a donation. Every penny goes to charity, and it’s free on all UK networks.

I’ll be updating this blog for a little while longer yet, as I still have some images to add, and I’m sure I’ll have to keep harassing some of you to donate!

And as for my weight over the 10 days:


Thanks a lot for reading!

  1. Congrats, interesting read and well done for doing it. It is a tough challenge as you are constantly surrounded by temptation. I know I would struggle to do it big time, the temptation of the biscuit jar would be too much for me..
