I think the people in Birkenhead must be getting fed up with us by now. (Only kidding) They have been very generous. This was anew craft fair that hadn’t been there before and we were offered a free table as we are a charity. We couldn’t miss this opportunity to get to know other stall-holders and raise even more for the charity. It was over the 2 days but only from 11.00am to 3.00pm. We finished the weekend taking £225.00.
We really had our work cut out that day. 10.00am we landed at Central Station in Liverpool, set up the banners, started to collect until 12.00 noon when our relief crew arrived. Then we dashed to Ashville Lodge in Birkenhead to take part in the Craft Fair.
We had arranged to set the stall up on Friday and for someone to ‘man’ the stall for us till we arrived at 12.30pm. By 4.00pm we had had enough and were glad to see other stalls packing up. Altogether it was a very successful day; £341.80 from Central Station and £221.50 from the craft fair.
We had a marathon collection at Central Station, Liverpool on 16th August 2008.
Paul and Carol were there from 10am to 4pm with buckets, joined by Helen, Russell, Marie, Steve Tam (from the Capitol Chinese Restaurant) and Andy Morgan (Steve’s friend). It was a long day but the public were very generous. Andy ceratinly added a special something when he arrived. The grand total was £465.09.
We think Simon would have been proud of our stamina.
