Alzheimer's and YMCA

In one of the most embarrassing farces of my life, I prepared lots of cakes, took the day off work, hosted a coffee morning in aid of the Alzheimer's Society and ONE person turned up!

And he was in his 80s...Never mind. Will chalk that up to experience. At least he and I had a nice chat. But we didn't raise much money. Or any in fact.

Moving swiftly on, the bric-a-brac stall at my coffee morning went in its entirety the next day to the YMCA shop...prompting me to nearly defriend a FB friend who raised £200 at her fundraising coffee morning!

West Berkshire Mencap’s Westie Walk on 15th June

I was lucky enough to meet the CEO of West Berkshire MENCAP yesterday who mentioned that she and her dog are organising a Westie walk!

Non-Westies are also welcome and the event, which takes place at 11am on Saturday, 15th June by the control tower on Greenham Common, is to raise money for MENCAP!
