Pamper pamper pamper

After the Kili Crawl it was a bit of a hectic week trying to promote and sell tickets for the pamper evening but I managed it and the charity pamper evening is successfully over. I bought a ticket and had a manicure myself, thinking why not as I had never had one before. And I…

Now for the hungover stage of the Kili Crawl

So, last night was the Kili Crawl and although not many tickets were sold, I and everyone else seemed to have a great night! Although, I think they’re feeling it today. It was my first time at some of the bars but I would definitely recommend them all. Great songs, great drinks and great discounts….

Melt down #1

Fundraising is hard. Selling tickets for events is even harder. And this is my first fundraising melt down. The kili crawl and pamper evening aren’t doing as well as I hoped and I am now stressing about reaching the final target. I was so happy reaching my first target but what I didn’t think about…

Target #1

YAAASSSSS! I have officially hit my first target of £880! I have come so far since I started and I actually can’t believe I’ve managed to raise over £800! I never in my life would have thought I would have been able to do that! I still have sooo far to go to reach my…

Beer Pong tournament #3

Success, my beer pong tournament is over and I managed to raise £123.15! The event seemed to be going great and everyone was all set with rules and a play order being posted. Then, unfortunately we had some drop-outs on the day of the event as well as teams not turning up on the day….

Pamper Evening

My next event will be a pamper evening at NCN Clarendon campus where participants will be able to get either a manicure or pedicure as well as a complementary drink as they arrive for only a £10 donation. This idea for a fundraising event came with the help of my cousin who is a qualified…

The Kili Crawl #1

With the beer pong event under way it was time for me to start organising another. As my home town is near to Nottingham I decided to start organising a bar crawl there, I emailed multiple bars and clubs and finally ended up with a route I was happy with. The route will be starting…

Beer Pong tournament #2

So after another email I have a reply from Players! WooHoo, beer pong is HAPPENING! Planning to hold it on the 14th April teams can enter via posting on the facebook event page  https://www.facebook.com/events/122148391511316/. For each player it’ll cost £3 and the maximum a team can have is 5 players. The winners will win a…

Fundraising is hard

I knew this challenge would be hard that’s why its called a challenge but with me having no experience in fundraising beforehand, it is really hard to think of new ideas and fundraising events. I want to say a massive thank you to all my friends and family who have helped my by donating and…

Beer Pong tournament #1

After my meeting with Alex, I am now starting to organise my Beer Pong tournament in Sheffield. I have contacted Players as I had a trampolining social playing beer pong there, so I know they can accommodate it and am now waiting on a reply before anything else can go ahead. As my boyfriend is a…

Who knew stamps were so expensive!?

In order to get some help with my fundraising I have written letters to my old primary and secondary school as well as a few companies and charitable organisations such as the Rotary Club and Ilkeston Maisonaries. Seriously though, why are stamps so expensive! I have never really written letters before so it was a…

It’s finally sunk in…

Soo, it has finally sunk in how much £2895 actually is and how hard it is going to be to raise that much, especially as I don’t really have a clue as to what I am doing due to this being my first ever time fundraising. I had a meeting with my leader Alex today…
