    Hi julicorn
    I would like to sign up for 2020 and would love to keep my current number if possible please.
    I’m going to set a target of £600 initially please, although I may well adjust this once I’ve had a chance to do some calculations at the end of next month.
    Many thanks for all your work :)
    That's great, thanks for taking part again!
