WOW! WOW! WOW! Did I say WOW?

You are all amazing. Last week we did our charity events to raise money for our friends in Portswana (see this earlier post). We sold t-shirts and we played hockey for 24 hours (I think it’s fair to say we also did a fair amount of drinking to keep the motivation up!). The t-shirt sales went through the roof and luckily we made loads because they sold out  by lunch time. We were also hugely lucky with sponsorship for the hockey match. You all managed to raise an amazing £5,580 between you but then a mad thing happened.  A local business man (who wants to remain anonymous) was visiting the University while we were playing. Claire and Fiona managed to work some sort of magic on him (I think the lederhosen costumes helped) because before he left he promised to match any money we made ourselves on the day! True to his word he has written us a cheque for £5,580 pounds – can you believe that? We would like to take this opportunity to thank him for his amazing generosity. What a guy!!!

So now it’s time to reveal our total. Drum roll please………

PUGS have raised an incredible:

£12,486

See…..WOW!

Thanks to everyone who helped and participated and everyone who donated money. We will be sending this to the people of Portswana to help them build a School.

I can’t wait ’til next year now.
