Look what’s been going on over the last week!
The Rupert’s Revenge Golf Day at The Astbury last Wednesday was a great day with surprisingly no weather interruptions. John Swithenby did a fantastic job of organising the rabble and handing out the fines and overall the day raised a tremendous £1,685 which was then increased by a further £90 following a donation from Crystal Golf Society. Thanks to everyone who took part and a special thanks to The Astbury for holding the event and John for his efforts.
Alex Brooke and his team have now completed the second challenge of collecting the sponsorship money following their Tough Mudder and have banked £143, well done on both counts.
The total for the Football tournament at the Severn Centre in Highley is now confirmed at £422.05 and the beautifully counted cash has been received and deposited, thanks again guys.
The Old Gate have yet again been fundraising and have banked £237, we really appreciate their continued support and would love to hear how this was raised.
And lastly for the list of known donations, Salon Blue held a Sweet Jar competition and raised £76.65, fantastic idea.
Now we appreciate that people donate anonymously for a reason and so we are not publishing this in order to identify people, however we cannot let this go by with a thank you to whoever these people / organisations are. Firstly thank you to whomever donated £500 on September 9th on Just Giving; secondly thank you to whomever banked £572 and lastly thank you for all the other generous donations received without names. We respect your anonymity and equally appreciate your support.
Ed Roberts from Birch Farm firstly donated a day’s shooting (great) and then sold it for us (double great). Please note that we are not suggesting that we prefer cash to material donations, we accept anything that has a value with the exception of hard drugs and
Now then, a few requests for upcoming events where we need some volunteers:
- On Saturday 30th September we are looking for help with refreshments at The Leisure Centre for the Bridgnorth Choir Mania event starting at 7:30pm.
- On 6th, 7th and 8th October we will be at Sainsbury’s packing bags for customers and would welcome any volunteers to assist.
- On Sunday 8th October we are entering a team into the Up the Steps Walk organised by The Rotary Club of Bridgnorth and are looking for additional team members.
- On 31st October The Gym Club are fundraising via a Halloween Haunting event and need people to sign up to classes such as Boogie Bounce, Combat, Body Balance, HIIT, Spin, Pump, etc. Dust of your fancy dress lycra people J
If you can spare some time for any of the above it will probably result in some form of official recognition by The Queen or at the very least Bridgnorth Mayor, possibly. Full contact details on the website: www.rupertsrevenge.co.uk/contact/
A couple of things coming up this weekend are:
- On Saturday morning, back by popular demand; Castlefields School will have a cake stall in the High Street so please come along and fill your pockets and empty your face, or something like that.
On Sunday Steve Hyde is taking part in the Velo Birmingham which is a nice gentle 100 mile tootle around Birmingham and the surrounding counties on his bicycle. This does mean some road closures and possible traffic issues but we are all used to that in Bridgnorth aren’t we. Oh dear knew we shouldn’t have mentioned that.
