Nice things happening

28 Oct

Hmm, can’t decide whether to make you wait to find out what we were so excited about on Thursday. I could ramble on about meeting the headstone people again; going to Cardiff on Saturday; going out  for a soggy walk and a pub lunch today.

Or I could go straight into it. Hmm. Tappety tap. Tra la la. What shall I do. . .

Oh, okay I’ll tell you. First, a picture quiz.

What do you think this is?

 

 

It’s £802.20 in a jam jar. When it’s not rolled up, it looks like this:

And that is Thom and Tom handing it over, having raised it from doing the Three Peaks Challenge just for TKOE in the summer. And that’s not all. The £802.20 joins another £1362 on line collection. So they’ve raised an amazing £2164.20. Or let’s call it £2165. So that means we now only have to get £3517 by Jan 3rd.

That’s the surprise. We’re even nearer than we thought.  Which is a very nice thing for a Sunday evening. Isn’t it.

    That’s A-MAZ-ING. Only £3517, easy peasy.
    As I cannot attend/do the Zumbathon (I’ll be in Scotland) is there anyone who would like me to sponsor them? Let me know.
