Quick Post: First Indicator for #2020DecemberFundRAiser Proceeds

Good evening all – and big apologies for my delay in posting. I said I would come back with a figure today, but it has all taken a bit longer than I thought it would. Frankly, I underestimated the time it took to get all the items organised, packaged and on their way to their…

The Fixed-Price Sale Is Live #2020DecemberFundRAiser

Here we go! The brand new, all-singing, all-dancing fixed-price sale as part of our fundraiser efforts is now live.

#2020DecemberFundRAiser – Threshold 2!!!

Amazing things have happened since yesterday. Remember I appealed for a few more bids to get across the 700 Euro threshold?

RAdvent Calendar 2020 Is On

Yes, it’s happening again. The fun silliness never stops. During those long, empty lockdown days I amused myself with yet another iteration of the RAdvent Calendar. With three years under my belt, I felt this is an established “tradition”, so I had to come up with yet another fest of cheese and cheer. As in…

Fundraiser Fun Coming Your Way #2020DecemberFundRAiser

Mr Armitage is arguing for a quiet, contemplative pre-Christmas. As we head into Thanksgiving and Christmas worrying about doing the right thing, I just want to pause and think about the hundreds of thousands of families who have lost loved ones in this particularly tragic year. Perhaps it’s ok to have a quiet simple period…
