I had a jar full of sweets of which they had to guess the amount, it was 100 sweets, but when counting them in, I ate three! I also had a clothes rail of clothes I no longer wanted and clothes donated by a few other people. A good friend of mine is a make up artist for Dior and offered her services for a donation to do mini make overs. My mother used to be a beautician and did mini manicures for donations too. I also had a raffle with lots of donated prizes and a quiz all about tea. It was such a lovely afternoon for the ladies, I thoroughly enjoyed hosting this event and whilst racing around, making sure I got round to see everyone, sorting things out, in my mind, I was planning my next charity event.
Anyway, Selling raffle tickets, clothes, make overs and manicures, the quiz and people guessing the amount of sweets, I raised £184 which I never thought I could accomplish. However, some people unfortunately could not make it but very kindly sent to me donations to help towards supporting this cause. My final total came to £250. I was so proud! I owe thanks to everyone that made it, helped out, made donations, brought goodies for the food table and donated items to the raffle and clothes rail. I had an amazing time organising and hosting the event, I certainly hope to do it again soon. It brings to you great pleasure knowing you made a difference, no matter how small or big that contribution may be.
