What a week of fundraising!

This week has been nonstop. As always :)

With the help of family and friends we were able to collect enough stuff, junk and unloved, unwanted bits to have yet another car boot sale.

This time we did not plan for rain. BIG mistake.

Waking at 4.30, loading a car full to the brim (and when I say brim- I mean I couldn't see out of the back window and Teresa had to balance boxes and chairs on her head and lap!) and THEN driving to discover the car boot cancelled for this weekend due to 'BAD weather reports...Sorry' is not the best start!

However, we were not going to give up that easily. So we got on the phone and found as many local (ish) car boot sales and... all were closed... but one - an indoor one 2 hours away.

We were off like a shot before we could give it too much thought and decide to go back to our nice warm beds. Of course when we arrived they said it won't start until 8am and actually there was no room at the inn. You can imagine what we were thinking....

But no we didn't give up, instead we asked to set up outside. And that was the moment where everything changed - We set up and there was no stopping us!


Others followed, but alas didn't follow our sale expertise. And from junk we managed to raise some good dosh before the heavens opened and we just had to give up. Plus it was time to go to rehearsals for Roll Credits at Grove End Road!

This week also saw the...


And what a great night it was! The Hat Factory gave us a lovely space downstairs, we decorated it 50's styley, put music on, opened the bar and we were ready. Thanks to Mummy Burns we had a great crowd in and they were loving it due to the very talented Michael Begley. You were brill!

Thank you to everyone who made it such a success.

A special thank you must go to Ronnie Dorsey and Scamp Productions for their very generous donations on the night. Both will be up at the Edinburgh fringe with 'Of Sound Mind', 'Stick Man', 'Private Peaceful' and even more! Do check them out. We love them.
