Title: Car Boot sale proceeds
Post by: Famous Shamus on May 25, 2013, 13:47:29 PM
Elaine (Skye) has done a car boot sale this morning in Caerwent and she asked me to post this:

Breakdown of carboot     2 FP Bands      =  £4.00
                                     Donations       = £11.66
                                     Items Sold      = £65.60

                                      TOTAL          = £81.26

Will bank money on Tues - really enjoyed myself and Mike (son), Dawn (daughter-in-law) and Rhys were a great help.

Elaine also raised FP awareness with a folder of our dogs needing homes, giving out leaflets and she spoke to one lady who is considering fostering too.
Thanks very much Elaine and family, a great total!

Done another car boot in Caerwent this morning (by myself) unfortunately it wasn't well advertised so not many people came.  Managed in two hours to raise £43. 05p and had a lot of interest in FPAR and 3 on adoption. :)   Surprising the number of people who didn't know we existed - but they do now  ;)  I thoroughly enjoyed myself and now I think I deserve a nice cuppa tea!

Seized the moment of opportunity last night.  In Sudbrook Cricket Club they held a free Beatles Tribute night as a thank-you to the members.  In the break no-one had arranged a raffle so I volunteered for half the profits.  We should have in excess of £50 for approx 30 mins work- what a night  money as well as  promoting FPAR  :)

Well done! What a great achievement!
If Elaine or anyone else is planning a car boot I now have two boxes of assorted items looking for a good home -any offers? A mix of stuff - lamps, videos, books, ornaments...
