The event was smaller this year but we still managed to raise £154.50p for PROPS – just over £120 from the BBQ (funded by the Beaufort) with the balance from the raffle (prizes donated by the Hogweeds [mostly] and the Long John Silver Trust).
Many, many thanks to the Hogweeds and most of all Lady Hyacinth and the rest of our BBQ team, I did manage to get a thank you in to everyone at the end but here’s another just in case.
This year the proceeds went directly into an inclusive project PROPS have been working on for some while at Tormarton – producing logs and kindling.
The team needed a new concrete plinth for wheel chair access and the funds went to that, please see pictures below.
PROPS are having a bit of a supply problem at the moment as they can’t cut them quick enough, but if you’re interested they’re £4 a bag and £7.50p for a box of kindling. Enquiries via PROPS from their web site – http://www.propsforward.org/
Great stuff one and all!
