Over the last week, Julie and Steve from our 'local' Worcester pub, Charlstons, ran a raffle to support my Channel swim for Acorns.
Not only did they go to all this effort to raise funds, but they also personally donated two of the prizes, including a meal for two, and a bottle of wine.
The raffle raised just under £200 in total - So Julie ensured that Charlstons rounded the sum up to an even £200.
A fantastic effort, a brilliant amount raised! This money takes me well over the £12,000 mark, and it is very, very much appreciated.
Many thanks to Julie, Steve, and all who contributed!
As anticipated, Kevin agrees that Wednesday 20th August is our best choice for my swim. Accordingly, my team and I will rendezvous at 05:15 at the harbour.
We have one more day of relaxation, but we also have a confirmed start date and time now... together with predicted fair weather.
Stand by. Stand by.
