    I put myself down for Brassmonkey's virtual airhead weekend, but never turned up for that...

    I've just sent a donation on behalf of the Airhead Tossers who gave to the Ann & Babs flower fund.
    I hope you at least send some flowers

    How much did you raise in total Sid and which charity did you choose?

    As noted above in my first post, we made substantially less than I had originally expected. Last year we made over £800. This year due to a number of factors we more or less broke even at the end of the event.

    As explained in my first post, the generosity of those that did attend was offset by the costs incurred for those who did not turn up. We had costs for 50 and income from 30.

    There were still some adjustments needed as we got all the final bills in. Some of the left over food was still useable so I adjusted the costs for anything that I could use myself which I paid for. Proff was paid 100% in full for all his costs which included the beer, cider, lager, Babs curries and the breakfast meats less an allowance for a tiny bit of left over bacon that was recredited.

    After the event a few people sent me cheques as they did not have sufficient cash on them at the event. A further amount was received via Paypal following the appeal after the event. I understand from Paul Wong and Val.H that this included contributions from some of the no-shows and late cancellations.

    In total the net surplus was just over £400. I decided to round this up to £600 and gave a cheque to the charity last week (which they cashed immediately!). The charity is the Disabled Christian Foundation, local branch. The local organisrs are overjoyed with this amount as they were only expecting about £100 to £200 maximum. This £600 will allow three more disabled people to be subsidised and be able to go on their annual holiday which will be next April. The organiser has told me that when they have their meeting next month, they plan to take a photo of the group with members holding up letters to spell out "THANK YOU".

    I was waiting to get that photo to be able to post it up on here.

    They have also promised to take photos of their holiday next April which I'll also be able to post up here.

    Thanks again to everyone who contributed. I can ensure you that every penny went to a very good cause and it is very much appreciated by the disabled group.
