I just had a lovely phone call from a Marie Curie lady calling to see how the fundraising is going. She was dead helpful in suggesting things Rosie and I could do, and supportive when she heard of our current ideas.
she told me that we need to have £6K in the bank by 24th November
arghhhhhh - i had thought it said December - 5 weeks for 4 grand! I know we can ask them for an extension if we are completely stuck, which we wont be, but
argghhhhhhhhh - stop shopping, get collecting and planning the events!
