It’s all for charity

On the night where the BBC concentrates on [raising money for Children in Need](http://www.bbc.co.uk/pudsey), time to celebrate children who are raising money for others…

To commemorate their school friend who was killed in a road accident earlier this year, pupils at Guisborough’s Laurence Jackson School initially raised £5,000 for the local air ambulance, and have now supplemented that with a further £1,000 by doing a sponsored swim in the North Sea.

I don’t know much more than that, other than what is in [this news story](http://ts14.gazettelive.co.uk/2009/11/pupils-raise-1000-for-great-north-air-ambulance-in-memory-of-joe-caven-norris.html). And that only came to my attention because one of the pupils presenting the cheque is my namesake, Scott Matthewman.

I don’t know him. If we’re related, we’ll be very distant relations indeed. But to even share a name with someone who’s doing such good work for charity is humbling.

If you’ve come to this site looking for someone who does good work, you’ve found the wrong Scott Matthewman. You don’t want me, you want the other one.
