Sharon and Phil Williams at The Boar's Head in Ship Street, Brecon have kindly donated £185 to Fatboys through the change bottle on the counter and a quiz night they recently held. Thank you to Sharon and Phil for the kind donation
Another kind donation out of the blue came from the pupils of Tutor Group 7N at Notley High School in Braintree , Essex. They raised £227.66 for Fatboys which they chose as their preferred Charity. We have sent them a letter of thanks and asked what they had to do to raise this money. I'm sure they didn't take the easier route (as was customary in our younger days) of stealing dinner money from the younger kids !! A big thank you to all in 7N and our best wishes to you all for the future. The money will be used to help purchase equipment for a Children's Hospice.
The Fatboys team weren't sure whether to send congratulations, a psychiatrist or an ambulance to Sarah Shah and her brother Dan who completed the Bath Half Marathon last week in appalling conditions. Between them they raised over £800 for the Fatboys and we can only admire their determination and fitness but question their sanity !!
Fatboys received a very kind donation from Methuen Lodge in Swindon. This came as a complete surprise to us and was very gratefully received. We thank them for their generosity, and the money will be put to good use.
People wishing to help us can now donate direct at www.justgiving.com/fatboyscancercharity/donate . This is because we have discovered both Just Giving and the thing which is Gift Aid. Having seen the initial stages of donations to James Bicknell his fundraising voyage across the Irish Sea in a kayak, we've been able to see just how much we've missed out on through not having Gift Aid until now. However the situation is rectified,and the Fatboys house is finally in good order, and our fund-raising ventures will be greatly enhanced by this.
