BDMLR Caithness Fundraiser a Success

Saturday 5th March was the day for our planned bootsale and soup and sandwich lunch fundraiser. The day dawned bright and sunny and made for a better than average crowd at the sale and we were very busy right from the start!

The hall was very busy and packed full of people looking for a bargain and it seems there were plenty to be had. We had a total of 17 stalls and our own stall, which had lots of lovely stuff donated to us by members of the public, family and friends. The soup and sandwich lunch went down a storm, being busy right from 12 pm onwards. The girls who were serving certainly had a busy day of it but they coped tremendously - I am very proud of them all!

When everything was packed up and cleared away we counted the money to find that we made a grand total of £402! I am sure you will all agree that that is a super amount to raise in a few hours!

I would like to thank everyone who gave up their Saturday to help us, Audrey Gunn and her daughter Laura, Colin Bird, Jim Thompson, Jamie and Heather Dyer, Mandy McIntyre and her Mum Kate, my 2 sons Kyle and Elliot Myers and my friend Laura Gunn who also came along and helped us out. We couldn't have done it without a good team to help so thank you all! It goes to show that with a little planning and a few helpers we can achieve so much. Many thanks to you all again for supporting us with this fundraiser!
