A Weekend of Fundraising

The weekend started early on Saturday morning when I had a tombola stall at a Christmas fayre. I raised a modest amount and I was really pleased given it wasn’t that busy.

In the afternoon I travelled 30 minutes to my next ‘local’ bag packing. I was suffering from a cold so people took pity on me and donated generously.

The following day I had yet another bag packing fundraiser but it was a double shift so I stayed all day in another ‘local’ supermarket 30 minutes drive away.

Whilst doing these bag packs a lot of people were telling me how some of their family had been on a jamboree and others had themselves been to a jamboree. I met people who attended the UK Jamboree in 1957 and Australia in 1987. It was very interesting to hear where everyone had been to.
