We had our charity Tea party today, the first charity event I have ever organised and it was just as the title says, incredible!!!
I didnt really know what to expect, I have never done anything like this before so was worried that it would be a big flop but it wasnt!
People were queuing to come in, they had a go at all the games, raffle tickets were sold by the hundreds, people bought and ate cakes, they laughed, spent money and had a brill time!
I set up a tree of thoughts, the idea being that people write a message to a lost loved on a tag and tie it to the tree.
This is me with all the balloons
I got very emotional doing this as did Jade who helped me to let them go. I wrote a message to my dad who I lost when I was 7 and Jade wrote one to her Great Grandad whom she loved very much and was very close to.
I was amazed by the amount of people who came that I didnt know and have never met!! Obviously word got round which is fantastic!
I couldnt have done it without my fantastic team of helpers! Who would have thought that there were so many kind and caring people out there who would give up their sunday afternoon just to come and help me out? Such special kind people!!
Anyway I bet you are dying to know how much we raised?? Well, I am so proud to tell you that we raised
DRUM ROLL PLEASE
£1184.50!!!!! Still cant quite believe it myself!!
Such an amazing day and such fun had by all!!
