Peigi's Cake Stall

Peigi is a very close friend and held a Cake Stall at Frew Terrace on Monday 22nd November.  Now, Peigi bakes a mighty fine cake and 9 other wonderful bakers people contributed to the sale and raised a trully scrumptious £218.60 ( and 5 cents too! )

Thank you, my lovely Peigi and all at Frew Terrace - you wonderful Nigels and Nigellas

The Te Tiki Ride Out

Some of my favourite little people did a sponsored ride out of 6km to the back whare at Te Tiki Station in New Zealand in November... Niamh, Eilidh and I really, really wished that we had been there... Te Tiki is one of my favourite places in the world...

They raised approximately a totally trekkingly fantastic 1000 kiwi dollars!


Thank you to my favourite little kiwis...

Mr Whizzy Whiskers

Mr Whizzy Whiskers, aka John Barclay, rugby player ex·tra·or·di·naire for Glasgow Warriors and Scotland,pledged to grow his Movember Mo - for those not in the know, that's a moustache! - for Eilidh's Whizzy Wheels!

His mo took on various guises throught the SRU Autumn Series and raised a hairy £575...

Wheyhey, John!

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you...
Evelyn's Baking Sale

Evelyn works at NAG and is involved with raising money for the Help The Hospices Campaign.  This Friday - the 5th November - she is kindly donating half of the proceeds from her regular baking sale to The Whizzy Wheels Fund.

Evelyn's scrumptious and yummy baking sale recently raised a sugary sweet

£188 for The Whizzy Wheel Fund!

How truly scrumptious...

Thank you x

We were taken by surprise on 28th October - and, by the sounds of things, so was Eilidh's Granny Ellen - by a donation from Betty (Ellen's best friend!) who held a coffee morning with some of her friends. 

They raised a fabulously fantastic £170...

Well done, ladies and thank you so very much!

Betty's Tea Room watch out; you have competition...

And an extra special thank you to Betty and her family, too

The Blues Council

Allan Pratt and his Blues Council played the Tyneside Tavern in Haddington on Sunday 24th October and raised a staggering £370 for Eilidh.

Thank you to all involved, especially Pratso...

Much appreciated

Tea Party 10/10/10

Now admit it, we all love an afternoon tea...

My gruncle and his lovely lady Elaine are holding a afternoon tea party - and he's made a banana loaf! - to fund raise for Eilidh.

Tea Jennys will be selling her wares... exquisitely pretty cake stands, candles and teaglasses... and donating 10% of her takings to the Whizzy Wheels Fund.

Donations for the afternoon teas will also be taken...

Update 11/10/10 - And what a success it was raising £329.38 for Eilidh's Whizzy Wheels with banana loaf, scones, muffins and cakes... They had a great afternoon, catching up with Elaine's work colleagues and family, and sat last night, happy with their total raised, replete with afternoon yummy tea, relaxing with a glass of well-deserved wine...

yummy cakes!
So a big "Thank you" to gruncle and Elaine for organising the first fundraising event and thank you for making it such a wonderful success!  And also to TeaJennys - her cakestands are beautiful!

love Eilidh

Run, Sally, Run 10/10/10

A friend, Sally will be running in the Royal Parks Half marathon in Hyde Park, London this Sunday.  Sally enjoys running and has not sought any type of sponsorship in the past.  But this year Sally is asking friends, family and colleagues from Logica to sponsor her with all monies raised going to the Whizzy Wheels Fund - how fantastic is that!

Update 11/10/10 -  Sally completed the half marathon on Sunday in 2 hours 11 minutes and 5 seconds.

Well Done, Sally!

She said that it was "hot and hard" and that she has "lots of blisters" but that "running through London parks was beautiful".

Sally - in the middle - and team Logica

And she raised a wonderful £310.86 (at least, if not more!) for Eilidh's Whizzy Wheels!

wheyhey, Sally!

Thank you so much, Sally and to everyone who sponsored her, too: we really are very grateful...
