    well, start a collection of blood bags, EPO, and corticosteroids in your fridge, and you'll be half-way there

    I demand pictures!!

    What a great day! Ideal weather (although my lollipops melted a bit in the sun...!), a very successful time for Alli, a brilliant performance from the training band, lot's of fun games, and an entertaining football match ;) ...and 2nd place for the band's quiz team in the evening!!

    Hopefully we've raised lots of money to get us to the finals - I can't wait now!

    :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin:

    The football match was enteraining, where the guile and experience of the 'older' players worked......when that failed they sent in the hatchet man and made rude comments about the Welsh......most unsporting!!

    Some super guess work in the quiz last night too.......don't know where some of them came from!!:tup

    I'm not sure you'd want me to put the pic of your stall online..... but i can if you like!

    Well done Alli, you did a great job, and we wouldn't have raised anything like what we did without you.

    I think the Fun Day total was about £500 and the sponsorship will be over £1000, but we will find out exactly when everyone brings back their sponsorship forms! Start getting your money in folks! :biggrin: Jonathan will be most pleased!

    Thanks everyone for pulling together a wicked day which was enjoyed by everyone, even Charlie who must have raised about £15 when EVERYONE wanted to get him wet! Great pic on

    Well done Alli, we all knew you would achieve it in record time! Hope this means you raise loads of money to help take your band to good things at Harrogate.
