To shave or not to shave my head… that is the (charity fundraising) question

OK guys serious fundraising questions and yes this is me, you know, the one who will completely and utterly do anything for a cause that means something too me. (I’ve given up caffeine twice remember?) Some of you know I’m growing my hair with the plan to cut it to raise funds for C ThreeContinue reading “To shave or not to shave my head… that is the (charity fundraising) question”

#decaffeiNATed day 11 – the last day?

This time last week, if you’d have told me I could finish this tomorrow, go back on the chocolate and caffeine, I would have been beyond thrilled. This week, however, whilst I’m so very happy with the money that has been raised thus far, I’m a little sad to think that I may not lastContinue reading “#decaffeiNATed day 11 – the last day?”

#decaffeiNATed day 3 – remind me again why I did this

Today I was busy at work and that kept me going, didn’t think about caffeine (or chocolate), but I got home and wanted the biggest cup of Earl Grey you can imagine. But I can’t have it. I’m being good. I’m not entirely sure that opening some cider counts as being really good, but IContinue reading “#decaffeiNATed day 3 – remind me again why I did this”

10 days until #decaffeiNATed

And so the nerves are kicking in more than I’d like to admit. I’ve had one donation so far and that the first week is going ahead, but to be honest I’d like a lot more donations because a) I want to raise as much money as possible for Sanctuary for Kids and b) it wouldContinue reading “10 days until #decaffeiNATed”
