I'll be there tomorrow Sue. Green book of Raffle Tickets are sold out so we're 'In the Pink' now!!

We actually have 2 x 400gms of Jelly Babies, along with 2 x 400gms Liquorice Allsorts, very kindly donated by a British couple that have come in this week to complete their property sale with us.
Other Raffle Prizes (all donated), 3 litres Gordons Gin, 1 litre Vodka, 1 litre Famous Grouse, 1 litre Teachers, 1 litre 3 Barrels Brandy, 50cl. Jack Daniels, Hand Made Christmas Cards, Large box Pişmaniye, Hair-Care set, Bubble Bath and a litre of Moldova Red Wine.

People are being very supportive, we've just gone over 2100 in the first couple of weeks which is fabulous as we've got various pledges to come in from some of the developers and of course, Football Cards and Raffle Tickets will be used up until the draw on 29th. July.

2 weeks down and 7 to go!!

Re: Support for the schoolchildren of Nepal.

Wow! I've just caught up with the thread, well done on your fundraising so far! I've posted one parcel which should get to you soon. I've also made up another parcel of sweets that a friend will bring over and post to you in a few weeks. I have a bag of maybe 20-30 new pencil cases that my childrens friends have given. They are a bit too heavy to post (costs a fortune from the UK). If anyone is travelling to Turkey and would be willing to take them i could post them to you in the Uk, along with Turkish lira so you could post them on in Turkey. Good luck with your future fund raising x

Re: Support for the schoolchildren of Nepal.

Thankyou so much for that, I'll let you know as and when things arrive here. No panic, we've got a few weeks to go yet.

We're over the 3rd hurdle with the fundraising, figure standing at 3,150 now so we're almost one third of the way to the target of 10,000 cash that I set.

Tomorrow night at Flying Horse Quiz-Night I'm doing a Football Card to raise a little more to add to the collection. Sponsor your team(s), when the card's sold out we'll declare the winner. 400gms Bassetts Jelly Babies + 400gms Bassetts Liquorice Allsorts for the owner of the winning team.

Come on down and join in the fun. Quiz kicks off at 8pm so why not bring a few friends, make up a team and you could go home as Champion at the end of the evening.

Re: Support for the schoolchildren of Nepal.

Well didn't win the jelly babies, liquorice allsorts or the quiz, but at least the Nepal fund was increased.

Re: Support for the schoolchildren of Nepal.

I can't believe we're at the end of our 4th week's fundraising but our total so far now stands at 4,050.

Thankyou to all of you that have contributed so far whether it's been in hard cash or donations of Raffle Prizes. Our target's beginning to look realistically possible now and I must start and chase up some of the delevopers that have not brought in their pledges yet.

Let's see what we can do by this time next week!!

Re: Support for the schoolchildren of Nepal.

Off into Manavgat in a few minutes so will get you a couple of prizes for the raffle. Will give them to you tomorrow night at the quiz.

Re: Support for the schoolchildren of Nepal.

Cheers Sue, all offerings most gratefully received as you are already aware.
Millielove's parcel's not turned up yet but it really can't be far away now. No problem with our postman that covers the office so I know he'll be up with it the same day it arrives at our local PTT.

Our running total is now 4,600.
5 weeks left before I go across to Kathmandu, pledges are a little slow in coming in but we'll have a Football Card at Quiz-Night tomorrow and I'm asking every man and his dog to support us one way and another.

Thanks again to TLF'ers that have put donations into my YapıKredi bank account and also to those of you in Britain that have paid donations into my HSBC.


Anyone know a Millionaire with a big heart??

Re: Support for the schoolchildren of Nepal.

Apologies for double posting but I thought I should share this.

A Turkish friend of mine has just popped in the office and given me 100 to add to our Nepali schoolchildren fundraising. He's a young businessman and he's very involved with helping underprivileged children in various parts of Turkey. What a little gem!!

Also, I'm taking 2 Football cards to Quiz-Night at Flying Horse tonight because they're a little smaller than the ones I've used before.
The good news is that that means there'll be 2 prizes for 2 lucky winners.
A litre of Gordons Gin off the one, a large block of Cadbury's Dairy Milk Chocolate & a box of Jelly Babies off the 2nd one. Can't be bad.

See some of you there later.

Re: Support for the schoolchildren of Nepal.

A good day was had at the table top today for Ann's Nepal fund. She had been donated a lot of bedding, towels and clothes by a German lady who was going back to Germany and the items flew off the stall, Ann had the bedding table and me the clothes table.

She will be at the Flying Horse again next Sunday selling for Nepal.
