Every single penny donation to the 40 fortycubed charities is much appreciated. This evening a £20 donation to The Cystic Fibrosis Trust just tipped the running total over the £9,000 mark and I will be indulging in a cup of tea to celebrate!
Foreign Currency Drive
I am very grateful to everyone who donated their foreign currency over the last few months. Thanks to a generous company profit matching scheme, our donations were doubled to a grand total of £1624.76 which is already being put to good use by The Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust.
We have had so many fabulous donations from companies for the auction and raffle at the forthcoming Gala Dinner. However, I wanted to single out a donation from a family at my children's school. They are unable to attend the event but wanted to contribute in another way and have donated 6 bottles of Prosecco to be used as raffle and game prizes. There are now almost 350 tickets sold for this event!
Snapchat Geofilter and #fortycubed on Twitter
Thanks to having a teenager in the house, fortycubed has a geofilter set up for the night of the Charity Gala Dinner on 14th October at the De Vere Wokefield Estate. If you are attending the event and don't have snapchat yet, please get the app and then find out what a geofilter is if you don't know already!
Please also look out for @fortycubed on Instagram and #fortycubed on Twitter as photos of all the charity tables will be tweeted by @fortycubed at the event.
