Various league entry contributions etc were given to GOSH Xmas 16 (Hare and tortoise, Opera and various folk making kind donations). Can't remember precisely what we whipped up but it was in excess of £500 quid of toys at cost price thanks to Weeman suppliers.
To pay (intention for Xmas 17)
VIP Chairmans 50% of 1st and 2nd prize = £625
Grand Finale £15 donated by Mintman
£15 from Timmsy Grand Finale choke
£30 from Clammers from Grande Finale
I suggest given others have equally worthy causes we collect for different charities next year... although the opportunity for me and weeman to play Santa gives us an excuse for a beer up in London town
Rescued this post from the archive. .
Just caught up with weeman for a beer and curry....
There is this sum from last year (although I never got the 2nd prize VIP ) there is also this year's leagues % and I think the league of leagues prize for 2nd which I think Yani intends to chuck this way.... There should be close on a grands worth of toys
We are going to go to Great Ormond st hospital london on Monday 4th Dec to drop off a raft of toys which weeman will order through his suppliers....
Basic plan is to meet mid afternoon and go to the charity office at the hospital and then have a night on the beers and a bite somewhere.
All very welcome to join us and say hello. Think sweep and timmsy and clammers are likely additions to the drinking party to be confirmed. Sorry it is a school night but diaries were a nightmare mainly cos of weemans international holiday schedule.
