We had a meeting with the General Manager of The Village to-day and he has agreed to host our Summer Ball. Dates and times need to be confirmed, but we intend this to be the culmination of our efforts and hope to raise a lot of money from this event. We are working hard now to lay on some top quality raffle prizes and best of the best auction prizes. Watch this space, join us and dress to impress……..
Acre Head Primary School in Hull (Evie’s school) have just held a cake sale for us and raised £60. Thanks to Mrs Robinson and the kind ladies who did the buns. The chocolate cake soon disappeared! Many thanks to the enthusiastic kids who did the selling. Cameron (Evie’s sister) was in the thick of it as well. Big shout out to Acre Head, a great little school!!!
We had a meeting with Carly Bagshaw from The Hop Pole Pub who has kindly offered to host the Bank Holiday Fun Day for us. Carly’s enthusiasm is infectious and has got us all fired up for this event.
Had a good interview with Burnsy on his show this morning and was ably supported by Colin Vize, Medical Director of the Eye Hospital in Hull. Burnsy seemed to be very impressed by what we were trying to do for our area and later on that day we got an anonymous donation of £100!! Fantastic and many thanks whoever you are. Remember though, every penny helps! Please support us however you can for this much needed camera.
And on the same day we had a great article published in the Hull Daily Mail. Thanks to Alex Cross for supporting us here. Thumbs up to Alex!!!
Had a good meeting to-day with this organisations creative director, a Mr Gary Jennison. Gary is really keen to help us out and has put forward a number of suggestions which sound really promising. New territory for us, so we are relying on Gary to put his creative talents to good use. It really sounds a laugh though, so once again, keep your eye out on our Events page!
Our target of 50 walkers has now been hit. We have decided this is not enough to keep us entertained on the hills, so if you are interested, please get in touch. The more the merrier. A group of 5 walkers have expressed an interest in hiring a guide. If anyone else fancies this (max in group 8), please let us know asap and we will organise. We will be supporting the walkers with refuelling stops along the way and loads of encouragement!
Another successful bake sale at The Acre Head with some very able staff helping out (Mrs Robinson, the Head Teacher, no less). £64 raised all heading to the charity. Once again, many thanks to the bakers, the sellers (you know who you are) and most importantly, the school for allowing us to do this. Hopefully, we might be able to do another one of these in the New Year.
