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

Our Just Giving accounts

Erica and I have set up accounts with Just Giving, you can find our pages at

Just Giving is a great fundraising website that allows you to donate to either of our charities directly - it's simple, fast and totally secure. Also, if you are a UK taxpayer, an extra 28% in tax will be added to your gift at no cost to you - bonus!

Go and have a look

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
