Great staff at Clic Sargent charity shop

Today i received a call from the manager at the Clic Sargent store in Southampton. They had received my letter and were getting back to me about doing a tombola at their store. They were so helpful and kind and are happy for me to come and do a tombola at the store in December, which is great as it should be hitting the Christmas shoppers. It's also another wonderful way to raise funds for my charity trek. Also i will get a chance to chat to the staff and fundraising team, who may also be able to promote my 12 hour readathon for me and in doing so, raise lots for the charity.

It's great news and will be nice to chat to others who are really interested in the charity. It will also be great as doing the tombola should help me getting ever closer to my half way target of just over £1000.

Car boot sale fundraising success

Last Sunday i did a car boot sale at the local car boot and managed to raise £26 for the charity, taking my current total up to £843. Although not a huge success, every penny helps and the generosity of people was really heart warming.

I have sent a letter off to Clic Sargent charity shop in Southampton in the hope that they may let me do a tombola at their store. I have all the prizes already gathered so just need a venue to do it at.

A local pre school are happy to let me do a guess the name of the reindeer at their centre nearer Christmas time, which is great and should hopefully raise £40 for the charity.

Plans for the readathon are going well and i just need people to start signing up for it now!

Am also hoping to have another sponsored walk around May time next year and to also host a charity music event.

Sponsored Walk - Final total!

Thanks to my two wonderful friends, between us, we were able to fundraise £181 for Clic Sargent Thailand Trek. I am so pleased with my friends and grateful for their participation in the fundraing challenge.

The £181 we made, takes the total to £797.

There are a variety of different events to be held over the next six months. I am contacting a Clic Sargent charity shop to see if i can host a tomobola at their store and i hope to do a car boot sale in the next few weeks. Also a guess the reindeer at the local pre school on their Christmas play day. It would be nice to do something else before Christmas, but am not sure what, or if i can arrange anything, so any suggestions are welcome!

Next year i have plans for a Chinese new year party at my house where i will be asking for a suggested donation of £5.
