Since our last update in early April we have raised a further £720 which has paid for another 12 toilets in Malawi bringing our total up from 51 to 63 loos in our quest to get to 100 by the end of the year.
The lovely chocolate hamper made by @Obanchocolatecompanywas not claimed after the raffle despite our efforts to get hold of the ticket holder although happily the fruit, champagne and chocolate basket donated by @JMBreckenridge was.
You’ll be pleased to hear that there is happy ending for the chocolate hamper as last week we donated it to a local fund raising effort in Killin to support a young man and his family who are dealing with his cancer treatment which takes place many miles from home in this region. As you will appreciate the logistics alone add extra pressures and complexities at an already difficult time for a young family, so we were happy to help.
Meanwhile, our quest to reach 100 toilets continues!
Next, we will be selling this beautiful hand made light oak lighthouse which was donated by one of our regulars, Tony from Essex (yes, he visits 5-6 times a year for fish and chips!) who made this and gave it to us to raise funds for @toilettwinning. We have it on display in the café and are asking for a donation of £30 or over for it to go to toilet twinning…. Each loo costs £60 so £30 gets us half way to another….
We are fortunate to have lots of other items which have been donated and we will be selling these or using them for prizes throughout the rest of the year.
