£5.51m - The Lord's Taverners' income in the nine months ending 30 September 2008. This was a nine-month period because of a change in the charity's financial year. Income was £6.33m in the previous 12 months

65% - The proportion of income the charity raised from fundraising events. The rest came mostly from donations
