The Charity of Choice for our historic Centenary Sports Day 2011 was Promise Dreams, which supports seriously and terminally ill children. The young ladies hope to raise about £6,000 ….. so it was a great responsibility of a counting a lot of pennies type nature, that they bestowed upon me, but I felt that I was up to the task and went about it with due diligence.
I arrived at my table, marked “Finance”, which made me feel very important, in plenty of time …. armed with a pen and paper to make lists …..
But before we could proceed we needed to warm up ……
I was made an Honorary member of Paget, I wore my rosette with pride, but I took it off for the serious business of counting.
With bags and bags of sponsorship collected, I went back to the office to start the count and enter all the totals into my carefully prepared spreadsheets.
I didn’t manage to count all of it though, there was too just much, so I have been taken off the emergency photocopying rota for next week to continue counting. I am afraid with Monkey away at Solent Breezes, poor Sandra the Resources Lady has had to draught in Nigel and Marcel in our places!
I took my lunch out onto the field to join in the Centenary Picnic and was about to start my Nom yoghurt when Manjit spotted me and pleaded with me to mix a few sounds…. and pump up the volume to new levels! What is she like? But, I showed her a few new vibes and got the bass booming ….. well, it would have been rude not to!
When I have a final total for the amount raised I will let you know ….. Happy Days!
