Big thanks to Ruth Merrilees for presenting at the ASGS conference in London on Saturday 4th October. She did us proud! Ruth was presenting to headteachers, talking about Smalls for All. Everyone gave us a warm welcome and we now have schools in London organising collections!
I’m also really grateful to Ruby Beattie and friends for organising an afternoon tea ladies race afternoon in the Glenmavis in Bathgate. Thanks also to everyone who came along, baked or donated to the afternoon tea and race day raising £868!
There are still tickets available for the race night on Saturday 1st November if you are free. We are having a race night at the Carlton Highland Hotel in Edinburgh. Tickets are £17.50 and include a buffet and disco. If you are interested in coming along just let me know.
And apologies for mentioning Christmas but I’m really excited as we have new Smalls merchandise! Perfect timing for those Christmas presents. We will have a pen, pen set, cool bag, lip balm, notebook, desk calendar and thermal cup to add to our Christmas cards and shopper bags. More on this shortly!
