As of today, with a very generous donation from Carwood Motor Units in Coventry, I have now “officially” finished my fundraising! 😀 The gauge on the homepage shows that I have cleared the £5,100 target and raised over £5,200! I owe a massive thank you to everyone who has helped me to raise this sum … Continue reading
After 8 hours on our feet, 3733 coins collected and nearly 3 hours counting the results, I’m very happy to say that bag packing today at Morrison’s raised a massive £902.37. This has put me up to 90% of the total target – the end is in sight!
With my latest donations and events, I’ve smashed my May deadline of £3000 and currently sit on just over £3500. As with my February deadline I’m about a month ahead of schedule, so things are looking very good for having my total £5100 in time for July! My next fundraiser is a bag packing day … Continue reading

Wednesday through to Saturday this week sees the long-awaited school and sixth form production of GREASE. As well as helping out on the drinks stand, myself and fellow PT volunteer Nicole will be offering patrons a chance to guess how many sweets are in the jar below.

In the end five “100% willing volunteers” took part: myself, Mr Berridge, Mr Howell, Mr Hanley and Mr Evans. I’d like to say a massive, massive thank you to … Continue reading
I came home today to my first positive response from a charitable trust… The Alchemy Foundation in Surrey have donated £100 towards my total! With their help I’ve just passed £1700, meaning I am now more than a third of the way there 😀
Two big collection buckets arrived the other day, ready for my public collection in town on February 10th (more info). They’ll also be making an appearance at the leg wax next Friday. Got to say – they’re looking pretty good…
Fancy seeing me and five school staff members go through a fair bit of pain in the name of charity? Then head over to Ellis House (Woodlands) on Friday 10th February at lunchtime to watch us have our legs waxed in front of a crowd to raise money for Project Trust!
