So, what's been happening recently?

Well, I've decided that as part of my fundraising, I'm going to distribute smartie tubes to family friends and relatives and ask them to fill them with £1 coins. You can apparently make about £600 from 24 smartie tubes, so it should be good. Of course I need to get the smartie tubes somehow, so I visited my local corner shop and the owner kindly donated 7 tubes. I'm hoping to go to some more shops in the area and see if they can do the same, or I might write to a local supermarket.

I've been to the library and got a list of about 30 charitable trusts, who I plan to send letters to this weekend. I'm expecting a lot of negative responses, but fingers crossed for the odd grant!

Oh, and my friend, who's going to Guyana with Project Trust, and I have written a letter to our old secondary school, asking if we can use the school hall one evening for a ceilidh. We had one on the last night of our selection course on the Isle of Coll and had a seriously AMAZING time, so we thought it would be a great idea to hold one to raise money. If we find a venue, we're hoping to ask a ceilidh caller (and hopefully a band) to donate their services in return for publicity- so if anyone knows of ceilidh bands in London who might do that, please get in touch by commenting on this post!
