26,793 is the new total.
At time of writing we have sold 132 Spree books raising a fantastic £924! Thanks to all those who kindly helped me sell the books, and to everyone who bought one.
On Friday 25th November the “partici-pants” organised a Smalls Christmas Fayre. Sales of books, cakes, spree books and the Smalls for All shopper bag raised an amazing £393.21! Thanks to Sarah Scott, Sarah Moore, Denise, Faith and Rachel for organising. I’m looking forward to seeing some of their crazy fundraising ideas come to life next year.
I was delighted to be invited to join Ann Gloag, the founder of the Balcraig Foundation for drinks at her home last week. I met the Balcraig team and other supporters of the Foundation. Everyone I was introduced to was told that I was “the pants lady” and Ann herself thanked us for all the underwear we are donating to the hospitals and childrens’ home she supports. I took the opportunity to handover more underwear and we have now given 2000 of the 6000 items we have pledged to donate in 2012. Paul, the Operations Manager confirmed that they will be taken over in January and February. I have promised Ann that we will continue to support them throughout 2012 and beyond.
A big thank you to Mary Tasker, Aileen Brennan, Danielle Small and Lynn Dempster / Betty Murray from the Inner Wheel Club of Larkhall for their donations of underwear. I also received a very large box of pants from Space01 who decided not to send their clients a Christmas present but to donate underwear to us instead.
Thanks to Susan Watt, Miss Newmarch and Jo Mullin for their monetary donations.
I hope you all have a very merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, and thank you all for the support you have given Smalls over the last year.
