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 attend 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.
On September 7th 2008, the Eye Fund Sisters (also known as: Helen, Anne-Marie, and Lianne), took part in the annual Liverpool 5k run around Sefton Park.
All three finished with a personal best time and at the time of writing they’ve raised £640! Well done, girls.
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.
Take a look at some pictures of the event in our gallery.
