Well Read sponsored read December update

Posted in Books, Charity auctions, Family life, Fundraising, News, Surrey Young Carers, Well Read 2011 on December 6, 2011 by The Rock 'N' Roll Oatcake

A quick update as myself and my daughter near the end of our yearlong sponsored read for Surrey Young Carers. It has been fun and I have discovered a great new author to me along the way, Philip Kerr and his highly readable Bernie Gunther novels. Jasmine meanwhile has been galloping through the Lemony Snicket series (although now disowns the Justin Bieber book she read back in January as she has moved onto Green Day, You Me At Six et al).

A BIG thank you all for your support and you can still kindly pester ask people to make a donation. With the wonders of modern technology you can pledge a £1 by mobile:

Simply text AFQZ62 to 70070 and even better the message is free J

Thanks again and we both wish you a happy Christmas & New Year!

I am still amazed at how much the Rebus whisky went for and the signed Red Dwarf script (signed by Rimmer aka Chris Barrie). I have been doing these signed items for charity for a while now and it is always fun to see a) what you can get kindly donated and b) the final selling price. Onwards and upwards!
