Re: Support for the schoolchildren of Nepal.

I'm pleased to say that we're half-way to the target I set.

Our total to date is €5,200 and with just over 3 weeks to go, I'm sure we can see that grow a little more. We just have to keep on........doing what we're doing!

I've had some more prizes donated for our raffle. Some really nice Glassware, a bottle of Kavaklidere Red Wine and a Hamam for 2 people that's been offered by the Wellness Centre at Kumköy. The Hamam includes steamroom, foam massage,back massage with oils and then total chill-out with face mask.
Sounds good to me!

I guess that's it til I update again next Tuesday.
Thanks to all of you that are helping with this task, very much appreciated.

Re: Support for the schoolchildren of Nepal.

So pleased to see that grand total bob up over the five grand mark!

I wanted to just tell everyone who has been buying raffle tickets that we now have two lovely new prizes up for grabs, kindly donated to us.

1) A fabulous slap up hamam for two people with the usual sauna, foam massage, face mask and super dooper oil back massage at Kumköy Wellness Centre.

2) An hours sailing trip on a sporty Top Cat Catamaran from Çolaklı beach for up to four people...take your swimwear as you WILL get wet If you can sail you can go it alone but if not my lovely fella will accompany you and do all the hard work while you relax!

Thankyou so much to everyone supporting my Mum in this mission, it really will mean so much to those still living on blankets under sheets during the monsoon.

We still have a way to go to the €10,000 and only three weeks to do ıt...every little helps!!!!

Re: Support for the schoolchildren of Nepal.

How fantastic is your total so far!! I received your message and am thrilled the PTT delivered my parcel (how dare i think badly of them as they haven't yet delivered the other!). So anyone thinking of going to one of the Nepal fundraisers, there are now some Thorntons and Cadbury treats that managed to get from the UK unscathed!...good luck with future fundraising x

Re: Support for the schoolchildren of Nepal.

I'm sure your other parcel can't be far away Rachel and as soon as it turns up, I'll let you know.

End of another fundraising week, our running total now stands at €7.740.

I'm really chuffed with everyone that's playing their part in this. With another 13 days left until I hit the road for Kathmandu, I need to pull in another couple of pledges but I'm almost running out of ideas now.

Keeping fingers and everything else crossed for reaching target.

Re: Support for the schoolchildren of Nepal.

I just want to say well done for collecting such a vast amount, I hope donations continue to come in and all your hard work reaps more and more. I wish I could be there to participate in the quiz nights and fund raising.

Re: Support for the schoolchildren of Nepal.

Went to Cheers Bar tonight with Ann (Freedom 49} together with a football card to raise more for the Nepal fund. She had quite a challenge to explain the workings of a football card to the league of nations!!!

The raffle draw is on Wednesday night at the quiz at the Flying Horse, I'm not holding my breath that I will win anything as I never do but in this case I won't mind not winning as it's for a very worthy cause.

Re: Support for the schoolchildren of Nepal.

These Tuesdays are coming round quickly as time begins to run out but..fund now holds €8,220.

Still waiting on a couple of pledges but I'm beginning to think those guys have got very deep pockets and extremely short arms! Maybe their cash is in the 50pence coins I remember from Britain all those years ago and I'd need a funny shaped spanner to extract those, wouldn't I?

Thanks for coming along with me last night Sue, it was much appreciated but after dealing with Germans, Dutch and Czech's for all of which I have no language at all, I'd almost given up the will to live by the time I came across a British couple up at the far corner! breath of fresh air!!

A comic moment at another table when the guy put his head up to look at me. A tenant who'd done a runner owing rent last year, sitting with new girlfriend and her daughter, picked his teams off the card rather quickly as I think, he thought I was chasing his debt! I'll get him but not in someone's bar.

I'm on the last few days now. I'll be leaving the office about lunchtime next Monday to drop my car off before going to the airport so our final total for this effort will be posted sometime during that morning of Aug. 3rd.
Hoping for a last minute miracle here!!

Thanks again to all of you that have already done your bit. I really don't have the words to fully explain how I feel about this.

Re: Support for the schoolchildren of Nepal.

I am so sorry.
I've just spent almost 30 minutes writing out a full list of winners, prizes, ticket numbers and everything literally flew off screen as it was about to be posted!

Apologies but I just don't have time now to do it again. Maybe tomorrow.

Can any Moderator tell me what happened there as I was still typing and almost about to post it.
