    Some exciting news everyone!!

    I’ve been accepted onto a team travelling to Eastern Siberia in summer 2005 to do some volunteer work and generally experience a different way of life as part of the Guiding Assoc.'s work over there in establishing guide and brownie groups. We will camp for a week, stay with a Russian family for a week and then stay in Moscow for a week. The team consists of 10 young people (inc myself) aged roughly between 16-18 yrs ( I’m 18 ) and four leaders. Now obviously a once in a lifetime experience such as this don't come cheap and the next few months are going to entail a LOT of fundraising. So seeing as I know a lot of you are part of volunteer organisations and are familiar with fundraising for your bands I was wondering if you had any sure-fire/interesting ideas for fundraising. Obviously my band are supporting me fully and we’ve already though about doing a concert where the proceeds go to the team, but I was wondering if anyone had any other, more fun/unusual ideas?? Don’t have to be band related since the rest of the team aren't banders and they will want to get involved too!!

    there's always the classic... one trombone, a hat, and 5 pieces of music and you've got a good 8 hours of busking material there!
