Archive for January, 2011


Well, as you saw earlier in the day, I hit my £10000 target this morning and with that donation The10GrandCharityChallenge came to and end.  With the end of one fundraiser, another kicks in and I would be delighted if you could come and visit me at my new website

Thanks to all of you who made the10grandcharitychallenge possible.

I am absolutely delighted to be able to announce that as of this morning I have achieved the goal of The10GrandCharityChallenge!!

This morning I made a couple of calls and donated a grand total of £3030 to take me to the magical £10000 mark!!

Great Ormond Street Hospital were of course the main beneficiaries of my donation, with £2030 being added to their coffers.  I decided, after a long association with the charity, to donate £1000 to those brilliant folk at Cancer Research UK.

A HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who made this possible… supporters, celebrities, sponsors, buyers … everyone!

It’s been a challenge like no other for me, but I won’t be resting on my laurels. I have plans afoot for a new fundraiser through the coming year, so watch this space for more information later today…

 

And It’s ALMOST There…

I am delighted with how the auctions went over the last few days, and I know now that I have cleared the amount I needed to hit target.  All that stands between me and donating £10000 is the money transferring from my Paypal account into my bank account and that is currently under way 🙂

I said several months ago that I was aiming to complete The10GrandCharityChallenge by January and I am delighted to be on the verge on doing that 🙂

Next post to follow when I have made the donations to complete the £10k and to launch the new fundraiser 🙂

Check it out folks, we are FINALLY there.. the auctions which will take me through the £10000 mark within the week.  As always there are a brilliant range of items available, from stars of the Beatles films to Little Britain, from Ryder Cup star Thomas Levet to Battle of Britain Pilot John Ellacombe.#

Thank you very much 🙂

 

With the lovely Swine Flu leaving me pretty rough, that final round of auctions has been held up by this rather obvious reason.  I’m now sitting with a wee bundle of items which will be listed this evening to hit that £10k mark.

I am also all but ready to launch my new fundraising venture for 2011/12, with the site ready to go live once I have hit the £10000 mark 🙂

I will post again tonight once I have the auctions online 🙂

Well that blast of flu that has been bothering me since the turn of the year was diagnosed this morning as being swine flu, so that explains the constant lack of energy and the fact I have been wiped out for much of 2011 to date.  It’s keeping me inside just now (I’m not meant to go anywhere on Doctor’s orders) so bear with me if you have items due to be sent out… they will go out next week all being well.

Away from that, I think the auctions ending today are going to end just short of the marker needed for the £10000 hit, so I will be adding some more listings over the coming days.  While I am stuck in the flat, I can still get stuff online, and I will be listing on a longer term basis to allow them to be posted more efficiently after the end of the auction.

That £10k mark is blooming close, and I cannot wait to hit it 🙂

…are now well and truly underway, with 60+ auctions now online.  I’m under the cosh of full scale flu right now, which is what has led to the delay in getting these auctions online.  I am firmly hopeful that the money raised this week will lead to the £10000 barrier being smashed!

Included in the auctions today are match worn goalie gloves from Kilmarnock & Scotland ‘keeper Cammy Bell (pictured) and match worn boots from Jim McAlister (Hamilton Accies) as well as the usual range of signed photographs, doodles etc.

I’m very much looking forward to the £10000 mark being reached, so please do have a look and see what’s up for grabs 🙂
