I promise to do my best

It was quite a busy year for me and my guiding family so I decided all the events were going to be fabulous….

and of course guiding stays with us forever even when someone leaves guiding, so we had a fabulous reunion of old Ranger guides at the local pub and reminisced about the good old days

A Close Shave

Today in the foyer of Bristol Royal Hospital for Children there was an unusual sight, 3 nurses from the Bone Marrow Transplant Unit had their hair shaved off to raise money for an outside play area and parents facilities for the new Paediatric Oncology/BMT unit opening at the end of this year.

Kerry, Pete and Bex had a target of £2000 to raise for the Wallace and Gromit’s Grand Appeal, (the official charity for the Children’s Hospital), and at the time of writing they were about £100 short of that amount.

No going back

It is still possible to donate to this amazing cause by visiting Kerry’s page at this email address –  http://www.justgiving.com/sponsor-shave.  How fantastic would it be for them to far exceed their target.
