I meant to write this update last weekend, but things have been so manic that I didn't quite manage it, so there is rather a lot to report.
Firstly, the auction finished on 2 September, and raised over £2000, an incredible effort from all concerned, and we are immensely grateful!
On Friday 7 September, Jade completed her 24 hour sponsored silence. Jade, who is expecting her 3rd child to be born any day now, decided to take desperate measures to bring a little calm to her house, and was silent for a full 24 hours, despite the best efforts of her family to make her talk! She raised £310 at the same time, a fantastic effort!
On Sunday 9th, Mark completed the Cheltenham Lido Triathlon in 1 hour, 12 minutes, and 48 seconds, a huge achievement! We greatly appreciate Mark taking on such a challenge to help Daniel.
Then, on Friday night this week, it was the CLC staff quiz and curry night. David had spent nearly 2 days composing the quiz, and it was enormously enjoyed by all. It also raised £527.73 for Daniel's fund. A massive thank you to David, as well as Ann and Bryony, and the CLC Staff Association.
At the very same time as the CLC staff were searching their brains for those elusive answers, Sophie and Lara were holding their 'Ate for 8' dinner party. This clever idea involved them inviting 8 people round for dinner. Each was asked to pay £10. The hosts were then challenged to produce the whole dinner for just £10, and the remaining £70 was for Daniel's fund. They managed to feast on Guacamole and toast, Beetroot Risotto (see photo), Walnut and Stilton Tart and Chocolate Sorbet with Blackberry sauce. A good time was had by all, and a big thank you to Lara and Sophie.
Finally, JMW Solicitors have been busy again! They held a raffle last week, at a special event, and raised £375, to add to the enormous amount they have already raised for Daniel's Fund. We continue to be immensely grateful for all their efforts.
This week I am holding my coffee morning on Tuesday morning (18 Sept), 10 - 12 at Shurdington Century Hall. Anyone is welcome, so come along for a coffee and a cake. There will be a raffle too!
So, that's it for tonight. I will do another post soon with what Daniel himself has been up to recently......
