Same deal as last time - £7.50 per player, maximum of 8 in a team, beer and food at the Queen's afterwards.

Pool tournament raises £395

Thank you so much to everyone who came along to the pool tournament, especially to Martin, without whose help we couldn't have managed.

We made an amaxing £395, which has brought us even closer to our total.

Congratulations to Benson and Ginge, who, against all the odds, took first place.

Five-a-Side Footy

Erica and I just wanted to say thanks to everyone who came along on Sunday, we had a great day and hope that you all enjoyed yourselves too.

We managed to raise nearly £300, which means we've now raised over £2700, so we are well on our way to our £6000 target.

We hope to have another tournament in August or September, so get in touch if you are interested....

First Goal Scorer

For the Israel-England Euro 2008 qualfier the pub was absolutely packed - we ran a first goal scorer competition (thanks to Jen for the tickets), we charged £1.50 a go, and 50p from each ticket went towards our fundraising. We made £12.50 and the winner gave back a fifth of his winnings - what a generous soul. We made another £43 in generous donations - England were crap, but our customers were not!
Thanks to everyone who gave yesterday

The Beginning...

This afternoon Erica and I paid our deposit for our trip of a lifetime......
In November this year we will be heading off to Thailand for 11 days of trekking, kayaking and elephant riding to raise money for the MS Society and the Stroke Council. Erica will have to conquer her fear of creepy crawlies and heights as we hike through the jungle and across rope bridges....and knowing how clumsy I am, it will be a miracle if I come home in one piece!
We have to raise a minimum of £2575 in sponsorship each, on top of the £245 deposit we paid today and have lots of fundraising ideas and events in mind which we will hopefully make people aware of via the blog.
Thanks to a very generous pledge from a certain Mr Kale, Erica and I finished our first official day of fundraising a whopping great £990 closer to our minimum target of £5640.

251 Days to go...£4650 left to raise
