The coffee morning on Tuesday went well. I must admit that my coffee was perhaps not the best (I'm not very good at scaling up things like that to make for lots of people) but people were kind, and it was a relaxed occasion, with plenty of time to catch up after the summer holidays and the hectic start to the autumn term. The incredible support we have received since the start of our fundraising campaign was in evidence yet again, with a veritable mountain of cakes donated for the occasion (special mention here to those who were working so couldn't come and enjoy the cake but still donated baked creations, including Mrs Blake, TA in Lucy's class, who supplied the most wonderful ginger and banana cake). Huge thanks as well to my Mum, Glynis, as well as Fiona and Laura, who worked tirelessly all morning. Thanks also to Jill and Syrita from Asda, who supplied some tea, coffee, biscuits and children's raffle prizes. I hope that everyone enjoyed themselves and we raised over £200 for the fund!
Coming up in the next week, we have Daniel's Uncle James's Olympic-length triathlon in The Gower, and wish James the very best of luck!
Nigel is also launching his amazing challenge, which he aims to complete in April 2013, in aid of both Daniel and The Firefighter's Charity. Nigel is planning to complete 8 marathons, on 7 continents, in 7 days. Oh yes, and he is going to wear his fire-fighter's kit. Totally insane in my opinion, but we are certainly impressed, and of course grateful for his support. For more details, have a look at Nigel's website here.
