09/05: THE WAY WE WERE

Guess what we were doing 10 years ago today?







As you may have guessed we are both 'second time around'  but sometimes 'second-hand' is best :-)  which leads nicely into my next subject ......

We're off to do our Wednesday stint as volunteers for Pilgrims Hospice eBay shop but will be going out for a nice meal tonight at a local restaurant on the seafront.  Its within walking distance (weather permitting) so no worries about enjoying a glass of bubbly or two!!

Just wanted to give the volunteers at Pilgrims Hospices eBay office a big pat on the back.   We raised £108,000 for the Hospices last year (year ended March 2012).   The charity has several shops around Kent selling items donated by the public and periodically the 'better quality' items are passed to our office to be photographed and listed for auction on eBay where we can reach a wider audience and hopefully realise higher prices.   Its such a shame that so many worthwhile causes have to be reliant on charity to survive .... but David and I enjoy the 'job' and have met some lovely people as part of the group of part time volunteers.

Congratulations Sue and David. You both look so fantastic.

Also a bog pat on the back for the worth while cause, helping to raise so much money is great.
